Does anyone know a nail polish that has staying power like Revlon's Colorstay Nail enamel? ?
That is the only polish in this world that actually stays on my nails and doesn't chip and the color range is sooo limited. Not even OPI nor hard as nails compares. HELP!

Much of the reason that polish doesn't last long is due to the oils our bodies produce naturally. Some people have a higher amount of these oils than others, and there is nothing wrong with that. But, it can cause nail polish to not adhere very well, and prematurely chip off. One of the most common, and most effective ways to help slow this process down is to always make sure your nails are squeaky clean prior to applying polish. The first step is to remove the dead skin on your nails otherwise known as your cuticles. This is not the living skin that is above your nail at the as many people mistakenly believe. It is the dead skin which forms on the base of your nails as your nails grow out from the nail matrix. Use a cuticle pusher and some cuticle remover to gently yet thoroughly remove the excess dead skin from your nails. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after this step. Then wipe your nails clean to remove oils and other contaminants. You can use acetone, nail polish remover, or even 99% isopropyl alcohol for this purpose. Simply moisten a cotton ball, and wipe your nails thoroughly. Be sure to avoid touching your nails with your fingers after you have cleaned them to avoid transferring oils back onto your nails. Apply a high quality base coat followed by two thing coats of polish, and finish with a layer of high quality top coat. Clear polish is not the same thing as top coat. Always use high quality base coat and top coat since the cheaper ones that are available will not work as well. You don't have to spend a lot of money on them, but at the same time - don't skimp either. About the polish, most - but not all brands will last a long time provided your nails have been properly, and thoroughly prepped prior to applying the polish. By following these steps, you should find your polish lasting longer. I hope this helps.

Use a base coat, 2 coats of coloured polish and a remarkable coat. could desire to attempt Sally Hansen no longer elementary as Nails that could properly be got here across at Walgreens or aim. could attempt including a sparkling coat of polish another day.
