What's the best way to get nail polish to stay on your finger nails with out chipping?

Report as

The best way for you to keep nail polish on your nails without having to worry about chipping is to apply double coats of top coat or base coat. I find that when I apply a clear top coat I get up to 1 week and half without any chipping. All the best.

I am not sure about double coats of base and top coats.. I know that if you put on too many layers of nail polish it will peel off very easily. I would suggest to buff your nails slightly before you use nail polish, and make sure to use a base coat and a top coal sealant.

Do a double coat of nail polish. Hair gel or olive oil might help, too.

Tip the brush just under the nail and add two coats of sealer. After drying, plunge hands in ice cold water.Air dry.

I recently bought this thing called "chip skip" by OPI. I bought the tiny bottle, because I wasn't confident it would work, but 5 days ago, I painted my nails with a coat of it on top, and I haven't had a single chip since! The only bad thing about it is that you have to wait untill your nails are completely dry, or some of the colour will come off on the brush. I made that mistake and now what was once a clear formula has a permanent pink tint...

I have so much trouble with my nails chipping, that I kind of stopped painting my nails for a while; I just didn't think it was worth it, untill i found this!! If you can find this stuff, you should deffinetly buy it; I know I'm going back for another bottle soon! It might be kind of expensive (full bottle), but if you paint your nails frequently, it's totally worth it.

The best way to do that is by putting a few coats on, put on aclear coat after, and just be careful with your nails.

I'd say the best way is to put a clear base coat on, put on two layers of color and then a clear top coat.

I found that after the polish dries use an emery board and lightly file the tip of your nails. I found that doing this keeps the paint from chipping for days.

Start off with a light clear top coat. Than apply your color. Twice but don't put it on thick. Than apply another top coat
