How can I get my nail polish to stay on?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve never been able to keep nail polish on for longer than 1 day! Unless I get gel nails or acrylics, regular polish doesn’t seem to stay on my nails at all…is this normal for everyone or is just me??

Ugh I have the exact same problem…it’s impossible!! The only thing I found that works is if you don’t get your hands wet at all, but that’s not really a solution!

I think it’s pretty normal! Unless you shell out the big bucks on expensive nail polishes, it won’t really have much staying power! What I CAN recommend is a good rubber top coat which can definitely extend the life of your nail polish!

@jamielynn44 u could always wear rubber gloves when washing dishes OR try these nail cap thingies…u just put them over your nails to protect them and it’ll save u so much time in the end…ur manicure will last waay longer!
