  • Not really. Since I use my hands for everything it lasted just for a few days before it started to chip

  • It really depends on your activities, and how oily your nailbed is. See if you can find a salon that uses the Shellac system; its gel-based color, and it stays shiny, hard, and will not chip. You can do anything with your hands within minutes of complete application. It costs a little more, but its totally the answer for polishing natural nails.

  • Thanks mommy, thats what i figured too. Trying to use gloves now when doing dishes, it does help and it lasts a little longer.

  • I get the OPI gel nail polish. It last 2-3 weeks but they have to soak it off to get it off.
