If you've ever spent an hour carefully giving yourself a manicure, only for it to chip within minutes, you'll know how annoying it can be! I feel your pain - that's why I decided to test 10 top coats, one on each nail, over a busy weekend. But which ones would crack under the pressure?
I used (little finger on left hand - little finger on right hand)
Orly Top2 Bottom Coat £11.20
Nella Milano Top Coat £8.95 (now reduced to £6.99)
Nail HQ Gel Top Coat £5.99
For fairness I used the same base coat and colour. And the results...? Well, amazingly, despite being on my right hand (ie the one which gets the most use in day-to-day life) by far the best were Nella Milano Top Coat and Nail HQ Gel Top Coat. I was really happy with the no-chip results of both, plus their purse-friendly prices. Well done to both.
