Do you polish your finger nails? I don’t. While my toes are always painted, my nails never are. My hands are too busy, and the longest period of time I’ve been able to keep polish on and unchipped is just under two minutes. Even so, it’s one of the first things I notice about other women.

I have a theory that there are two types of women: those who polish with nude and natural colors, and those who prefer the more daring reds and current trends. But then there are those who really go the distance, gleaning inspiration from fascinating tutorials like this one. Which one are you?

Everyone seems to have their own secrets to staying polished. I’m so curious to hear yours! Will you tell me your tricks to keeping a manicure looking good? Please say yes!
