The 8 Longest-Lasting Nail Polishes to Get You at Least 7 Days of Wear
Yes, a gel manicure stays put for forever and a half. But after years of consistent gel manis, it’s starting to take a toll on our nails. So rather than investing in an at-home UV lamp, we’re opting for the old fashioned stuff (you know, regular nail polish). There’s just one problem: We don’t have the patience for formulas that chip after a day or two anymore. Luckily, we’ve got options. Here, eight remarkably long-lasting nail polishes that’ll get you at least seven days of wear.
