Do you wear clear polish most of the time?

I love have my nails painted with nice colors but with in a week they start to peel and chip so I usually just keep them shiny ;)
And even if they were to peel and chip you can't really with the clear polish.

  • Yes, I am bad about biting my nails. If they have a coat on, I am not as likely to bite on them.

  • I wear the bullet proof nail polish most of the time or my nail polish chips right off.

  • Yes I do, but when I want color I usually know that it has to be changed in a week. Same as you with the peeling off.

  • I either wear light pastel shades. I find that using a base coat, then re-applying a light coating of clear top coat every day, over my pretty colors, will make it last a long time.

  • I always do clear, I use my hands a lot and it's just not practical when the polish peels so quickly. For a special event I will do a color, but then it's back to clear!!

  • I never use polish anymore! I am so happy I quit that toxic stuff :)
