My nail varnish always chips, what am I doing wrong?
Love wearing nail varnish for work but once I've grappled with dressing toddler, nappy changes and the car seat it's usually chipped. I admit I never spend more than about £6 or £7 on it - should I invest in a more expensive one . . . if so which?
Also, am I supposed to do more than 1 layer? I am usually in a rush and would rather just do one . . .
I mange to get 6 days out of mine before re-doing. Time spent doing them properly is worth it. I use Mavala base coat, 2 coats of colour (usually Barbara Daly from Tesco) and 1 coat of Rimmel top coat; followed by half an hour of doing nowt - definately the hardest part of the whole process!!!
