For the longest while now, I’ve been on the hunt for a nail polish that stays on for 2 weeks or more. There’s nothing like having well manicured, freshly painted nails. It not only gives the impression of having well kempt nails, but it looks pretty and feminine.
The challenge with traditional nail polishes has been the longevity of the wear. The typical scenario, you apply the nail polish, wait for what feels like forever for the polish to dry and settle in, and within 48 hours, the colors begin to chip.
Even with the traditional nail polishes that claim long wear and no chip, I have found my experience to be no different and almost always experience chipping within a day or so.
This issue has often had me looking for an alternative at home nail polish that stays on for 2 weeks, and with a faster application process.
The other option of achieving longer wearing nail color, has been to go to the salons and get either an acrylic set or what they call a gel manicure. The gel manicure is also often called Shellac in some salons.
While these treatments at the salons offer the benefits of longer wear, the downside is the cost can quickly add up especially if you like keeping a perfect manicure regularly.
Most salons recommend a touch up every two weeks and at around $20 for the application. You figure at about $40 dollars a month, in a year you are shelling out $480 a year for nicely done nails. Not bad, but but it could be less.
Thankfully, there are a few product lines that have enabled us to get beautiful manicured nails longer with nail polish that stays on for 2 weeks in the comfort of our homes, and with significantly less cost overtime. Here are the current leading options:
