Update: Essie Gel Setter Top Coat

Remember when I raved last week about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat?*

Well, here is my manicure from last week, at day 8.

Essie Gel Setter, Day 8

Sorry the pic is not the best, but I will say, I am a little disappointed with the chipping. It’s still pretty shiny, but I thought it should have lasted longer. Especially since this was a pretty typical week for me: house cleaning, cat care, some freelance medicine/health journalist stuff, and the Indie Beauty Expo in New York. (More on that in a later post!)

And this is pretty much what my mani always looks like on day 8, no matter what top coat I use. I asked the manicurist cut my nails fairly short, too.

What do you think? Should this have lasted longer? What do you do to prolong the life of your manicure?
