Well-painted nails, like any other thing of beauty, are so gorgeous and delicate...and short-lived.

Once there’s a chip, even the tiniest one on just one nail, you have little choice but to remove every bit of nail polish from all your nails entirely. Because what is a good manicure if it ain’t a perfect 10?

The answer to prolonging that beauty: Top coats. Think of them as a screen protector for your nails. They keep what’s underneath looking shiny and new, and prevent chips and scratches so your manicure looks fresh off the polish press for longer.
