    How Regular Polish Lasts Me 2 Weeks!

    Alright, here is the secret….we all know that regular nail polish usually doesn’t last longer than 7 days. The hassle of running back to the nail salon to fix that chip is such a burden so there’s the option of doing Gel. But then there is also cons to using Gel too often, thinner nails, which means breakage. So what do I do? I get a regular manicure every two weeks (if not longer) & my secret to long lasting polish is….*drumroll*….A SECOND LAYER OF TOPCOAT 👈👈👈 Yup. It’s that easy.

I was always complaining & cranky that easily transitioned into my young adult life, it was natural for me to always view life as the cup half empty. I wasn’t handed an easy cup, so I figured why not sit & complain about it instead of looking on the bright side. I worked 40 hour weeks, while going to school full-time, so I could afford to make…
