Well I have managed to keep the same polish on for 3 days now.. no chipping, no tip wear... I'm so impressed! I'm not sure if its the actual polish (Essies Smooth Sailing) or the new top coat I tried.. Essence Gel-Look Top Coat. I have read both good and bad reviews on this top coat, but I am sick of Seche Vite chipping and pulling my nail polish on the edges so I thought I would give it a try. It was about $3 at my local Target store (can also buy in Priceline) and so far so good! My mani is still intact and is nice and shiny. But after 3 days I am getting a touch bored with it.. lol So I decided to try some stamping. I am a novice stamper, and so I'm not sure if its the cheapie plates I have, the nail polish I chose, or my lack of skill but they are so blah I am not even putting up pics. Patchiness, complete crookedness, its just all round badness. lol
Oh and for us Aussie nail polish addicts, Priceline is having a 3 for 2 sale on Sally Hansen. Yay! I picked up a top coat I have been hearing good things about the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat. Whew that's a mouthful! It's awesome though, Super shiny and dries very fast!
