My polish chips all the time too. I think for me it is just the peeling nails and all the typing I do. I always use a base and top coat and wear gloves to wash dishes and clean. I have kept my nails naked for the past week and now I have to paint them this weekend. Now to decide what to do...so many options.

My nails chip constantly, but I too think its all the typing and activites I do. I'm just not very careful with my hands and I'm pretty sure this is why I will never have long nails!

My toenails on the other hand grow stupidly fast! Anyone else's?

My toenails have no problems. The big toe is thick and the others are a little thick. Never a peel and they grow like weeds.

I went to Walmart this week, for the first time in weeks, and found the nail polish was still in shambles. The shelves has been ripped down, the prices are covered in swipes of polish, and 10 bottles remain. It is pathetic. I don't think they will re stock.

I just wanted one bottle of a rimmel polish. Dang it!

First chip within 48 hours of doing my nails! I'll try to touch them up later today and see how long I can stretch this mani

Boo! But keep us updated, Yom. I'm rooting for long lasting manicures!

The red glitter on the OPI Stay the Night turned mostly silver after a few days.

This is Can't Let Go.

And today

What nail polish do you have on at the moment?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1358616671.933372.jpg

Some of the purple glitter is turning silver. Not very good tip wear for two days. Part of it is no top coat. Part of it also reminds me why I own few OPI polishes. Poor wear for the price.

I like the idea, and I like how they feel, but I could just wear a heavy glitter without top coat for about the same thing.

RCC- That is a shame about the wear of the sand polishes. They look so cool. I'm hoping the Zoya pixie polishes will do better. I plan to get one unless people report similar problems.

Jeepy- You are a woman after my own heart with that mani. I'm semi obsessed with blue polish.

I'd love to see Daul on your fingers (or toes). I almost got it, it's still on my wish list.
I do requests. On my nails is Zoya Daul. I'm just not a huge fan. I was hoping for a grape polish with gold sparkles (technically it is) that looked like this.

But instead the two colors appear mixed together to get a mauve-y bronze color like this. (not my pic)

This pic, unlike mine, is pretty color accurate. It is not the best for my pale skin. Maybe it will look better on me in the summer when I'm "tan" (I'm pale and always wear sunscreen, so it hardly counts as tan.). I still think Daul is pretty, just not what I wanted or expected. I'll have to wear it more (just put in on last night) to see if I change my mind about this color.

I too am rocking a blue. L.A. Colors Colour Craze in....Splash! I used the mini bottle and there was so much bubbling, blah, and one finger started to chip although I did it last night! WTH?!

I really like the colour though, it's very....Eastery. Maybe I can bring my self to attempt a Spring/Easter Water Marble II'l mix it with China Glaze's Hang Ten Toes. That should be pretty.

ETA: and another finger has chipped. Dang it! I am not pleased. I really do like this colour

In trying to remove said nail polish I dropped and broke a bottle of remover (brand-new). I am beyond annoyed.

After a week wearing just the Nail Aid Peeling treatment, I still have peeling of course.

This is Essie's bff best boy friend. I'm not thrilled. It took three coats and it's still sheer.

I have an Orly that looks just like that. I wore it over the holidays and I was pleased with the long wear and few chips (although I was not working so thus not typing on a computer keyboard). I also liked it with my pale-ish skin.

RCC it's so funny how different people have different experiences with polish. I had barely any wear after 4 days and it stayed purple the whole time. I have great luck with OPI.

Tonight I'm finally trying another Zoya. Can't decide if I want to use Lotus or Vanessa.

I agree, it's pretty but not how I thought it would look either. Too pale for me too.


RCC - that's too bad, it is a pretty color.
