Probably one of the most frustrating things in the world is chipped nails the day after you polish them. I've tried e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. I mean it. I always end up with chipped nails the day after I polish them. Part of the reason is because my hands are in water all the time (washing clients hair) and that weakens your nails. The other part is that I just have really worthless nails!
So I tried this 3-way glaze by itself. Just 2 layers on my flimsy little nails. And they were instantly stronger. Then I tried using it as base coat and top coat, with 2 layers of polish (OPI) in between.
My nails didn't chip for 4 days.
That, to me, is groundbreaking. I was so impressed. And when they did chip, it was just a minor little flake on the end of the nail that could be touched up.
One of the reasons why this 3-way glaze is so good is that it isn't "quick dry". A lot of the polishes that focus on instant drying are notorious for the most amount of chipping.
Anyway, if you have chipping problems, check out this product. It's the best I've ever used!
