Be Your Own Pro: Chip-Proof Nails

So there are a lot of polishes out in stores that say 'no-chip,' but really there are only a few brands that truly last like the labels say they do (learned from experience).

Fancy gel nail treatments, like Shellac and GelColor by OPI, last chip-free for two weeks. That's because the polish is cured under a UV light for a few minutes after each coat. Get a similar high shine and long wear polish at home by applying two coats of a 'hybrid' gel color over a base coat activator. I recommend products like Nutra Nail UV-Free Gel-Color (it can be bought for about $12 at most drugstores). In five minutes, you'll have a strong, rock-hard mani - no UV lamp needed!
