I will be the first to tell you, I’m rough on my nails. I was a “tom-boy” growing up and though I’ve grown to love fashion and makeup, I’m still a rough and tumble kind of gal. However, when my nail polish is this chipped less than 24 hours, and I haven’t done much of anything, I’m left feeling pretty disappointed.
I painted my nails in the evening, let them totally dry and by one the next afternoon they looked like this. On my ring finger I have “Smoke and Ashes”. That color had been on my nails with only a tip touch up for about 5 days, without a top coat. My other fingers had stone cold without a top coat, for less than 24 hours.
This chipping really bums me out. I love the color and the finish, and I was really excited about it. I will wear this polish again, because I paid a pretty penny for it. However, it’s a color that I will use only for going out, and I’ll put it on right before I leave. One good thing that I can say about this polish is that it dries very very quickly. This is great for me, but I know it can be hard if you tend to take time when polishing your nails.
*Another thought-If you use a top coat it I’m sure it probably won’t chip as badly, however I prefer the finish without a glossy top coat.*
