@lashreece - Nice haul! You have such a nice husband... LOL. And that's sweet, getting a Clarisonic for your sis. Smiley Happy

 

@kalex - It's definitely a case of being overly active with your hands. Smiley Happy I don't chip and only get the gradual wear and tear after Day 3. Sometimes not even then. Honestly, there's no nail polish that can withstand physically being banged up by dishes and toys and what have you. I do a lot of reading and typing, so there's really no reason for my nail to chip aside from little accidents here and there.

 

Just as an update on the topic of nails - the Seche Vite top coat is AMAZING!!! It's better than drying drops. My nails felt dry almost immediately and I am so impressed. Kicking myself for not getting on that sooner because I've wasted hundreds of hours waiting for my nails to dry!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal: Does the Seche Vite top coat work faster and better than the OPI quick dry spray?

 

@lashreece: I would recommend Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polish and the Base Coat Primer, Base coat and Top coat by them. Ipersonally haven't tried it myself yet as I bought it as part of a pre-order and it hasn't shipped yet, but those who HAVE used is have gotten their manicures to last an average of 10 days without chipping. There's one lady that only does her manicures once a month with this combo! I'll let you know what my wear time is when I start using it.

Also, I have found that using China Glaze, buffing my nails, making sure there are no oils on my nails by using polish remover before applying base coat, etc does help my manis last longer.

Hope that helps!

@mermadelove, thank you thank you thank you for the product recommendation! My Charged up Cherry finally needed to come off last night (after 5 days!!!!! Which is amazing for me- I used to be lucky to get 1 or 2 days before chipping so I'm very happy) and so I got a chance to try the quick dry spray. I probably never would have tried it if you hadn't raved about it so I'm very grateful. This is the best new product I've used in a long time; I will never be without it. It does just what you said- it dries instantly, and not just to the touch, but really hardens so that you can do stuff without getting bumps in it.

I haven't gotten around to trying OPI quick dry spray yet but comparing it to the OPI drying drops, I think Seche Vite is even better. It's two steps in one because you get top coat AND fast drying while with drops or sprays, you have to do it in addition to layering over top coat. I have two OPI drying drops now that I don't need because Seche Vite is life-changing!!

Yay!!!!

 

I think I am officially the last person to get a Clarisonic. Even my non-Sephora-frequenting friends all have one.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal:  Congrats on your Clarisonic purchase!  I just know you're gonna love it! Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@kalex, let us know how you like it! The longer I've been using mine, the more I like it. I really regret not buying it sooner. @officegal, you should break down and get one! You wouldn't be sorry.

 

I just read on another thread that you're waiting to get it for free from a points system. That's very smart.

Yup, Awesome Drugstore carries them and I currently have half the points that I need. Smiley Happy

 

I still haven't spent the BI 15% discount. Not sure that I will... today is the last day and I don't feel like shopping. Smiley Surprised

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'd swap for the OPI drying drops!  I've been wanting to try those!
