Woohoo, a post every day this week! That might be a record. :p
So, the last couple weeks I've been thinking about how long things last. Unless I really hate something or have timing concerns, I try to make each one of my designs last a week. And by try I don't really mean try, more like, I don't take it off for that long. If I want something to last longer than a week, I might apply an extra coat of top coat or two a couple days later. Usually I'll get a few chips and tip wear, but have no real problems with nail polish lasting that long.
However, I hear lots of people saying that nail polish only lasts a day or four days or something. And I'm wondering if we have different definitions of "lasting," or whether polish just stays better on my for whatever reason.
For my end of the discussion, I have two photo comparisons to offer of recent designs. In each, the first photo is the morning after I applied it, and the second is before I removed it.
So I just wanted to contribute that, and hear what anyone else has to say on the matter. :)
