Okay,back to peeling/layers.
I usually do about that much layers, and have only had three polishes peel on me, and it only happened once. I found out it had less to do with the layers and more to do with how far down to the cuticle I painted.
I think not all polishes work well with a top coat so there is some degree of trial and error, but for the most part a top coat does, I believe, work to prevent chipping. It certainly can help you get past 2/3 days.
Because I have used the Jordana and it works well for me, I think I will recommend that to you.
It's called "Tough Stuff" and its base/top coat combo.
Let me/us know if you have any more questions and what you decide.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.
