Ugh. Well, I am disappointed. And frustrated. First of all, I make it a point to either shower before I paint my nails during the day and not after I have just spent time making sure they look great. I feel as though showering or some reason with recently painted nails always makes mine peel easily, etc. I showered this morning, and my nails have excessive tipwear and chips. So, I take steps to prevent chipping and tipwear as much as I can because well, who doesn’t hate it? I am upset because as mentioned in my post yesterday, I had high hopes for RBL with their quality of polish based on the price. I was expecting a good formula and application, which it had, and for the polish to last. All I asked for was 2 days! That’s not extreme. I haven’t even been wearing this mani for 24 hours and I have tipwear and chipping. Why must this happen to me? I used the Barielle Protein Basecoat with CND Speedey topcoat. I’m not using poor products as a base or topcoat for that to be part of the problem.
Has anyone else experienced this with RBL polishes? I understand this may have been some sort of fluke, and I will compare it with the wear on my other recently purchased RBL polishes. But as of right now, I am disappointed.
EDIT 11/15: I recently wore (and am still wearing) No More War. I put this polish on on Saturday and I decided to switch up my basecoat because I thought that maybe something wasn’t working well with RBL. I used Formula 2 by Nailtiques, followed by two coats of No More War and CND Speedey. My chipping after two days is nonexistent and the tipwear is minimal. I’m still unsure if I applied Concrete Jungle poorly or something wasn’t meshing with Stickey as the basecoat. I will also update on this topic when I wear Scrangie sometime soon. I am considering using two different basecoats on each hand and will fill you guys in on the outcome!
