After I ditched my acrylic overlay on my natural nails back in college I decided to stick with a regular old manicure and call it a day.
By day 5 I begin to see minor tip wear and get a few small chips that were only visible upon close inspection but my nails were visibly growing out. On day 7 the chips were visible enough to warrant taking it off, my right hand worst than the left since I’m a righty. The one question I get asked the most on the airplane is “What kind of nail polish is that?” My favorite nail polish is Essie Fiji. Plus tips, must-reads, recipes, and inspiration delivered straight to your inbox once a month. It took a long time for my nails to recover from years of damage and I didn’t want to experience that ever again. The top coat gave it a nice high shine finish and it was dry to the touch in about 5 minutes.
The CND Vinylux Polish was just as easy to remove as any regular polish and I didn’t experience any nail damage upon removal.


When I'm not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant, or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time. Since I wear a navy dress at work, I prefer a milky white and pink nail polish to match my uniform. Even with the rage of long lasting gel manicures I decided to pass as I am too scared of having my nails damaged again. Overall I was impressed with the wear of the polish since as I mentioned I’m usually chipping at day 3 and changing by day 5. I keep my nails cut short, apply my base coat, shade of choice and top coat, and do it all over again when it begins to chip too badly. Before I left the nail tech applied some CND Solar Oil to give my cuticles some extra moisture and she gave me a sample sized bottle to take home. I think I’ll invest in a few shades to use when I am going on vacation along with the top coat since I generally do my nails at home and the cost would be less than the cost of getting it done professionally. I’m very active with my hands and my polish usually begins to chip in about 3 days and by 5 it needs to come off so this becomes an annoyance at times when I need my manicure to last longer like on vacation.


For the first three days I didn’t experience any chipping and my nails still looked shiny and freshly painted. I have to wrap my nails with cotton pads soaked in acetone then wrapped in foil- which is a lot- but it works perfectly and I’ve got no damage. I was given a gift card to Salon Ziba in Midtown and saw that they offered a Vinylux Manicure, so I decided to give it a try since I was heading to Cali. The polish self adheres without a base coat and a special top coat is applied that increases the durability as your nails are exposed to natural light, helping to keep your nails chip free for up to week. I massage my cuticles with Replenish Organic Nail and Cuticle Oil daily. I believe the constant use of hand sanitizer weakens nails so I use Londontown Kur Nail Hardener.
