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 teens....no 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!

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.
