Keep Your Manicure Chip-Free With This Easy Step

There are several ways you can keep that manicure smudge-free, and there are various ways to prolong the life of nail polish, but when it comes to chipping, what are your tips on preventing early polish erosion?

Since most of you aren't into the whole intentionally chipped look, here's a bit of advice I learned from a friend. To add extra life to your mani or pedi, simply give the tip of your nails a vertical swipe of polish once you notice chips beginning to form. You can also nip chipping in the bud even more by adding this step to your regular post-painting routine. Goodbye, Mr. Chips.

Yeah this does help for the tip of the nail. Snookyx is right on w. the Seche Vite being the best. Haven't used anything else since I discovered the wonderous stuff.

I apply top coat every few days (on my toenails) since I don't paint my fingernails) and it helps my color last for about 2 weeks.

i always swipe a top coat over the tip of my nail then paint the entire nail with a top coat, it really does help with chips. Make sure its a good top coat, I highly recommend Seche Vite
