Which polish do you use that doesn't chip by the very next day. It seems they all do! Do you have any that are tried and true?

 I like ICE polish, unless you soak your fingers (or toes) in warm water for like 1hour; it will stay on for 5-6days without chipping! (for me at least, and work a lot outside)

What base & top coat are you using cause I think that makes a difference along with your body chemistry. You need to find the ones that work well with you.   China Glaze, FingerPaints, Orly, WNW and A Englands wear like iron on me.  But OPI, Revlon, Essie, Sally Hansen and Zoya tend to chip on me but that doesn't deter me from buying or wearing them.  I change my mani's every couple of days so chipping doesn't bother me.  I use Salon Science Artificial Nails and Salon Science Fiberglass Network as a base and Seche Vite as my top coat.

Butter London.  I use their base and top, it usually lasts 4-5 days. and sometimes I put Gelous on top of the top coat and it lasts a little longer.  My recent "galaxy nails" lasted about 6 days.

They sell them at Sally's. It took me awhile to find the right bases for me.

I'm wearing Loreal right now. I used  Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as a base coat and Seche vite as a top coat. I guess I'll just have to keep looking for the right combination.
