Every time we get a new polish from a salon, we immediately want to show it off. Yes immediately because we know that it wont last. After a couple of days we see cracks and chips. After a week it gets unsightly and we need to go back to the salon to have our nails done and spend son $$$ again. But With a little effort you can manicure your own nails to get your hands back into tip top shape and ready for showing off everything from classic polish to french tip nail.
