The manicure tip you wish you’d heard years ago – that will make your color last (chip-free) for a week!

A while back I was given a manicure tip that honestly, I didn’t think much of. I thought “meh” – I bet it doesn’t work. But then, as I was sitting here this morning typing, I was looking down at my nails. I realized I painted them LAST SATURDAY and I don’t have one single chip! How’d I do it?

TIP: To keep your nails looking fresh, chip-free, and looking otherwise fabulous….. apply a thin layer of topcoat to your nail polish every day.

That’s it! That’s all it takes! I’ve tried this trick over the past week – and I’ll be darned if it doesn’t actually work. On all 10 fingers – I have not one single chip. 6 days chip-free? That’s pretty unbelievable.

What do you have to lose? You’ll thank us later… I promise.

PS: Here’s the topcoat I use and love.

Nail Life Speed Demon Polish Dryer is a chip-proof top coat that protects polish from fading.

  • Gives polish a high gloss finish
  • Protects polish from fading
  • Chip-proof top coat
  • All-in-one applicator
