BEST Nail Polish for Weak Nails

I’ll be the first to admit that my nails have always been weak. I can never grow them out because it’s only a matter of time before it breaks, chips or just looking like an absolute hot mess!

Getting my nails done every other week use to be a thing for me… until I decided that my money could be better spent on other things. So, when I see a new polish, I enjoy giving it the benefit of the doubt and giving it a test to see how well it works on these stubborn nails.


I’ve always enjoyed OPI, ChinaGlaze, and Essie polishes, BUT they never lasted? Does anyone else have this problem? I kid you not, half a day later my nails are chipped and I look like I’m a 12 year old girl again. SO, I just haven’t gotten my nails done. I don’t pay to get them done. I don’t paint them myself. I just rock the good ol’ bare naked nails.

Not too long ago, I noticed that Essie came out with some new polishes… I thought it was just the packaging that had changed, but I didn’t realize at the time, it actually was a gel polish. I’ve tried gel polishes before (ie. Sally Hansen)… that was nothing worth talking about…

So last week, I took home with me one of these new polishes and decided to put it to the test. They retail for around $12 ea. at Walmart. It is recommended that you do 2 separate steps, a base coat followed by a top coat. However, I actually didn’t purchase the top coat… I wanted to truly put the polish itself to the test.


I am so pleasantly surprised! I’ve had a couple people ask me if I got my nails done. Even without the top coat, the polish is shiny enough to make it look like a professional job. The best part is the polish has lasted me 7 days. If I wanted to, I could have kept it for longer… WHICH IS COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF FOR MY NAILS! WOW. I am still shook. It’s SO good!


The colour selection, not surprisingly, offers a wide range of shades! I will defiantly be heading back and purchasing a couple more shades! Have you guys tried any other gel polishes that you love? Let me know in the comments below πŸ™‚

  1. Legit painted my nails yesterday and I’m already missing 3 nails! It doesn’t metter what I do they always chip! I saw this range but I didn’t really wanted to buy the top coat so I never got it, now that you are telling me that they worl even without I feel like I need to check them out! πŸ˜€ You seriously saved me! I stopped wearing nail polished because I hate having my nails with so many chips! I wonder if the top coat would do the same with other polish making them super long lasting… Would you mind check out my page? Maybe we can follow each other and be internet friends, it would mean the world to me.
    Love, Mimi
