Manicure…

My Sister introduced me to something called a No Chip Manicure from OPI. I tried it once and cannot wait until I am able to regularly pay for this luxury. Manicured nails for up to 2 weeks would just be wonderful. I looked at the chipped polish on my nails and thought briefly about going today to get one. Then I calculated how many hours I would have to work to pay for it and decided against it. I just grabbed the nail polish remover that I keep in my desk drawer, walked to the bathroom and took off my polish. I will probably paint them later myself.

This actually works? I chip my nails about 20 min after I finish painting them lol

It does. I admit I tried it once last month and it was wonderful. It lasted almost 2 weeks.

It costs about $35-$40 and doesn't damage your nails at all. It requires no machines or anything like that. It's simply a brush on gel nail polish similar to regular polish. It takes about 30 minutes and it is cured with a UV light instead of dryers.

You walk out of there and it will NOT chip at all and it is already completely 100% dry.

I have to say that it would be perfect for an interview, vacation or special occassion.

@ YPB: Yes, Yes and Yes...It is truly awesome!!! I had a french manicure and it looked fantastic. My nails are shorter in length too and I still got compliments. I cleaned and cleaned and my nails still stayed perfect.
