I use this all the time, even if I'm not applying polish after! My nails peel back on the tips when I'm using my hands a lot, cleaning, doing dishes, etc, and this helps prevent that from happening.
I love OPI! It is BY FAR the best nail polish I have ever used. It is long lasting, and easy to apply. I find that it does not chip easily
I am a girl who for some reason can't keep nail polish on. Even on my toes. I used to think I was weird, now I don't have to be. Chip skip really works for me. I use it on my toes before polish and a topcoat. It really is worth the price because it WORKS!! For my nails, I still had to use the chip skip plus another (non-OPI) product to get polish to bond to my fingernails longer than an evening. I am now happy to say I can wear polish on both my hands and feet because of the aid of this product. It goes on super quick (I'm not sure on the technicalities of it, but it would seem that it is taking off the natural oils from my nails to get the polish to adhere better). So once you put it on, it is like it evaporates in a second. You may think - what DID I pay for? Well actually - it's the product just doing its job! Don't panic. Move on and polish away. Top coat seals the deal and you are set for an anti-chip adventure!
I usually love OPI products. The polish stays on longer than most other brands and they have a really wide selection of beautiful colours, but this didn't live up to their standards.
I'm the kind of girl who always has to have polish on my nails, but I got sick of them chipping so easily and ending up looking horrible, so when I saw this product I got excited.
The product claims to make the nail polish stick to your nails better for no chipping.. I guess it is supposed to dry the nail out so the polish's stick better. (Had I of known this I probably would have skipped buying it all together and just made sure my nails were really dry first! Nail polish remover would do the same thing, for a lot cheaper).
There isn't much to say here, other than it didn't work. At all. I tried it a lot of different times, and it never worked.Once it's applied, you're supposed to put a basecoat on anyways-isn't the point of a basecoat to make the colour stick longer? That would make this product pointless...It was pretty expensive for such an ineffective product, and I wish I could have brought it back.
Oh well...you live, you learn! I've just accepted that for chip free, consistently perfect nails you have to be able to afford to go to the salon a few times a month...which most people can't. I might start saving coloured polish for special occasions as I'm getting really tired of re-doing it so often.
