get a good top coat—it’ll make all the world’s difference. try seche vite :). also, glitter nail polish—like OPI’s Only Gold For Me—is ridiculously hard to remove, so I don’t know if that counts as durable or not lol

I got the new nailpolish done that they set with uv light…it lasted so long my growth showed something awful. It was expensive, but worth it…and doesn’t ruin your nails.

A couple of coats of O.P.I. nail laquer is the most durable I’ve had

Revlon Lasting Finish Pro. Half the time I don’t even put a base or top coat on it, just a single coat of color, and it lasts for a couple weeks. If I actually take the time to use it well and put on a base and top coat of the same brand, it lasts me about a month. And I put my nails thru some serious abuse haha.

sally hansen has some nail polishes that are very durable. i have the hard as nails Xtreme wear in red and it lasts longer then any other nail polish I have used. I don’t do a base or top coat either most of the time so it would probably stay on longer if I did haha. i would say with one coat it probably will last two weeks.

Essie works really well!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a no chip top coat that helped my nails last for 4 extra days, i usually chip the polish a day or two after i paint my nails, the top coat i’m using now is revlon and it works like a charm!!!

I’ve found that China Glaze works really well and is pretty strong against chips.

I think a better top coat. I understand where your coming from. The polish on my toes seems to last forever and not so much of my hands. Once a week I have to change my color because of chipping.
