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 ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Yup. It’s that easy. After I’ve gotten my nails done, I allow my nails to fully dry, go about my day as usual, and as soon as the first layer of polish & top coat has fully set, I add a second layer of top coat. Preferably, I like to use the OPI topcoat just because I find it to be more sturdy & “thick” than other brands, but thats totally up to you.

My mom & aunt have sworn by this trick for decades & I have been doing it myself for years. I can go a full two weeks without a polish change when I double layer my topcoat. Plus it’ll save you some money ๐Ÿ˜‰ SUPER easy & a definite must try!

Let me know your thoughts & how long your polish lasted when you gave it a try!
