Nails are a never-ending battle: You spend time painting them, and they chip 30 minutes later. So you pay money to have them done, and they chip 2 hours later. So you pay even more money for the gel manicure, and you're sick of the color 3 days later but can't get it off.
FINALLY my sister shared her secret to making nail color last a couple days without chipping! It takes some time, but just find something to watch on Netflix and you'll be occupied.
That first sentence is a term of endearment. I swear.
And these were my nails 3 days later... slightly chipped, but usually by now the color on at least 2 nails would have peeled off!
