Hard wearing nail varnish

(5 Posts)

I am trying to prepare my feet for summer and painted my toenails last week. In years gone by the colour would last for weeks and remain un chipped. This year they have worn and chipped with a couple of days. I need only use a cheap nail varnish. Any recommendations would be great

If you can stretch to it, a good base and top coat will make all your cheap nail varnishes look much better and last much longer. I like OPI.

Shellac lasts for weeks on your toes. smilesmile

Splashing out on Shellac or Biosculpture will cost about £27 but will last all season (depending on how quickly your toenails grow). I love the stuff as it's chip-proof. Bright red on my finger nails last three weeks before the regrowth needs to be addressed, never because of chipping.

My finger nails are bright orange shellac! Love them! smilesmile
