The lazy girl’s nail polish

I don’t know about you but i hate painting my nail’s i see it as such a chore.

I usually have to paint my nails every few days due to the constant chipping -_- until I found the Maybelline Superstay 7 Days Nail Polish. There’s not much to say other than it does EXACTLY what the name suggests – lasts the whole week. (it would probably last longer but I get bored with the same colour after a week so i remove it).

These are the shades I own and they’re gorgeous the colour pay off is ridiculously good, I usually alternate between these week by week.

Now a few tips to ensure that they do last the full 7 days..

I always use a base coat because not only does it make the polish last longer, it also stops your nails from turning that rank yellow colour you get from wearing nail polish all the time. The one I use is a Rimmel one but unfortunately i think they may have discontinued it as i can’t find it online. I like this one because it’s not clear, it has a pearlescent tint to it so it also looks gorgeous on its own. If you can’t get your hands on this particular one have a look at others that have a bit of a tint to them.

Now this may seem obvious but it’s important to always use a top coat, i just use the Maybelline Superstay 7 Days one, it’s a gel formula so it also gives high shine. My final tip is to not only apply a top coat when you’ve just painted your nails, but to apply another top coat midweek – this really helps extend longevity of your polish.

The colour I’m wearing here is ‘Divine Wine’ it’s my fave.

Do you have any tips to extend the longevity of your nail polish?
