Orly’s Won’t Chip Topcoat: Day two

I’ve been struggling with trying to keep my nails from chipping. It’s not fun to spend time doing your nails only to have them chip in a couple of days. Recently, I purchased Orly’s Won’t Chip Topcoat in hopes of extending my manicure’s lifespan. Well on the first day, it chipped in LESS than a day. It actually chipped FASTER than if I hadn’t used the product at all. Like most reviewers have said, this bottle should be renamed ‘WILL chip’. Other viewers suggested that it’s best to apply it while your nail polish is still slightly wet. This supposedly helps the topcoat bond with the polish better. So I tried that again with my Maybeline Express Finish nail polish, but again it chipped in less than a day!! This was getting frustrating. This “Won’t” Chip topcoat is pretty pricey compared to most topcoats so I’m not a happy camper here.

Determined not to waste my money, I gave it some more thought and wondered if my “Express Finish” is drying the coat too quickly for this topcoat. To test out my theory, I pulled out my typical hot pink Orly’s nail polish. This time around, I didn’t wait till both hands were done before putting on the topcoat. I painted one hand and immediately put on the topcoat to ensure that it’s over a wet coat of polish. So far, it’s been good!! It’s day two and my nails haven’t chip yet. I’ll be counting down how many days before my nails start chipping. Oh yeah, and this time around I didn’t even bother to put on a base-coat. I just put on two thin coats of nail polish and then the Orly’s Won’t Chip Topcoat.


OK, it start chipping on Day 5. Not too bad.
