Long lasting nails!

All the topcoats I've ever bought that claim to make nail polish last for days and days are out the window...

And why is that?

Because they do absolutely nothing for the longevity of my nail polish! So I've gone back to basics - the way I would have done it back in the day when I was in my base coat and no top coat.

My quick easy nail routine now goes something like this:
1) Clip back and file
2) Apply Solar Oil to replenish my nails
3) Apply nail polish (preferably no more than two coats or the polish may peel)

And that's it!

If you would like to see a full review of Solar Oil then click here :)

Of course the nail polish you use is also quite important in ensuring long lasting colour and for me personally, nothing beats Barry M... They dry fast, the colour is opaque with a couple of coats and they don't chip for days!

That being said, I've just got my hands on some Models Own polishes and so far they have really 'wowed' me...but it's early days and for now Barry M are still my no.1 for nail polish.

Pictured above are: Neon Pink, Blueberry Ice Cream, Mint Green and Pink Flamingo

What's your favourite nail polish brand? Have you got a routine that makes your polish last for days?


  1. Completely agree with you about base coats/top coats, they just seem like extra hassle for no reason!

    I love Barry M & Models Own too, Rimmel polishes are surprisingly good as well!x

  2. Base and top coats don't work for me either :( I've never tried any oils etc on my nails but they're ridiculously weak so I'm going to have to get some SolarOil, it sounds great!

    My favourite nail varnish brand is probably Rimmel, I have so many of their shades!

  3. Hm think I'll have to pick up that neon pink, not seen that one! xx

  4. Agree about the Barry M polishes, my fav is the light purple one, blackberry ice cream? They have amazing staying power x x

  5. I have yet to find the perfect base coat for my nails!
