Swizzle Stick could've lasted 5 days if I didn't change. It wore so well! Much better than most of my others. I'm thinking it's time to invest in some other Orly colors.

I still have SH Lava on and the shrinkage seems to be worse than most glitters. No chipping so far and I didn't get chipping with my last mani either.

What I've been doing is one coat of my top coat then once dry a swipe with the top coat across a la french tip making sure to get over the edge (hey it's practice! ). Then the next day another coat brushed on normally. So far it's worked well with Out the Door but I haven't tried with anything else that I can remember.

Maybe that'll help some of you with chipping issues.

Essie Brazilliant with a terrible stamping job. I used China Glaze Mahogany Magic and Konad m60. Someday I will conquer stamping.

Essie Masquerade Belle - one of my favorites.

I just got Essie's Midnight Cami. I can't wait to do my nails with it on Sunday!

how often does everyone change colour?

when i got my nails done 10 days ago, i had Zoya Amber on, and when i got home Monday night, i put a coat of the Zoya Myrta that i bought last weekend over it.

Wednesday night i got tired of it and changed to one coat of OPI If You Moust You Moust with a coat of I'm All Ears over it.

i've got so much of this stuff, i've got to start using it...

Once a week, typically on Sunday evening. I like starting the week with freshly polished nails. Sometimes I get off schedule, though, which annoys me.

I change color every 3 days on average. I'm trying to get them to last longer but I usually get bored after 3 days anyway. It gives me an excuse to use up my tons of polish.

My polish wears down and chips within a couple of days. I hate having to re-polish bc I hate drying time.

today is nail day. pics coming!!

I like to go a week as well and it's been working with the way I'm putting on the top coat. I can get bored with certain colors but try to restrain myself or if shrinkage is stoopid.

And Lava is just as hard to take off as glitter, it seems to have micro glitter in it.

Rou, it depends on my mood. I try to leave it on one week, but sometimes 4 days is all I can take. It also depends on how the polish is holding up.

I normally leave my pedicure alone for a week.

Oh yeeaaa! I think I'll use a patterned duct tape though. I have the fan and the stool is $5 and change, why not.

I go two to three weeks between pedicures. I get that done at a salon and the polish easily lasts three weeks. I do major maintenance on my feet in between because my skin is soooooo dry.

I keep my nails short - it's a personal preference (the older I get, the more long nails kind of gross me out), and my polish lasts WAY longer on short nails. I just love the look of short nails - very 1940s, especially in bright red or super-dark cream polishes. And I think shorter nails are more suited to working in an office. All just my opinion, of course.
