“The nail polishes last forever. I really have only changed it because I can’t wait to try the next color!” - Barbara L
Barbara is right! We commonly hear that customers get 2 weeks of wear with our nail polish formulas. Extend the life of your manicure by using Fast Fingers and So Base-ic, our base and topcoats.

I’m on the fence with this polish. While the matte finish is different, the sparkles under give it a frosted look which is nice. Wish the polish was darker as it almost blends into my skin. The polish is thin, coats evenly, and dries fast. I have purchased many polishes from this vendor and they are always arrive beautifully wrapped.
I love the color and the fact that it doesn't chip easily. It is REALLY thick. I'm not sure if all the colors are like this as this is my first purchase, or maybe I got a bad batch, not sure. But super thick and gloopy. It's a little hard to get even coverage bc it is so goopy.
I was so excited for this to arrive along with the so base-ic garlic coat and the fast fingers top coat! The color of this polish was just about everything I’ve been looking for..neutral with iridescent flakies! I then read a bunch of reviews saying how long this polish lasts, and I was sold. BUT I’ve tried 3 times so far and haven’t had it last for more than 24hrs on my nails! I consider myself very skilled with nails, so I truly don’t think I’m doing anything wrong?!
I first put the so base-ic coat on and let it dry. The first time trying, I put three coats of this color because I didn’t want my nail line to show since this is somewhat sheer. I then went ahead and put a normal layer of the top coat. When I was in the shower, they just all started peeling off in big chunks.
So the next time I was just testing on one finger and didn’t use the base coat, applied two coats of color and one coat of fast fingers. I made sure to let each layer of color dry as well, but it also peeled off not long after. Today I decided to try again, thinking maybe I had oils or something on my fingers (even though I always spray my nails with alcohol or put a light layer of acetone over them before I do manicures). I wanted to make certain that there were no oils, so I went over each of my nails thoroughly with acetone polish remover. I then put one layer of the base coat and let that dry. Next only two coats of color, let that dry for at least 30 mins before applying one last layer of the top coat. It seemed to look and feel the most secure on my nails so far, and I thought I discovered the trick to making this last. But after I took my shower tonight, I noticed when I picked up my phone that I ALREADY had a small chip on my right thumb! 😩 I just do not understand what’s going on, because all of the reviews are so positive saying that this brand lasts them for a week or more! Can someone tell me if I’m missing something here? I absolutely hate to leave any kind of negative review, but I seriously am racking my brain trying to figure out why this isn’t working properly for me. If anyone has any tips, feel free to DM me on my instagram at nat_elenaa or email me at [****]. I would truly appreciate it so much. So sorry for such a long explanation btw. I hope I can rectify this issue, because I really want to love this polish!
Amazing! Lasted a long time too!
