With all that said how could I be frustrated already? Of course, major chipping will do it. This is my first experience with a full mani of matte polish and let me just say I am quite disappointed. Should I be? Probably not. I have read the reviews that the matte polishes are quite prone to chipping but it was less than 24 hours and I spotted my first few chips. GRRRR. It was more around the 14 hour mark when I noticed my first few chips along the tips and edges of my nails. I took my shower, no chips, worked on my laptop some, no chips, but somewhere between home and the grocery store my first chips appeared.
I tried to remedy the situation with another coat, mind you it took 3 coats to get the appearance of a semi decent application. I don't like chips so I touched this polish up at least 4 times throughout the day. Enough is enough. This will definitely end up with a Konad design and top coat in an effort to salvage the 8-9 coats already applied.
UPDATE 1/20/10: No Konad for this mani, this polish is coming off as I type..couldn't even keep the chips away for a few hours. I did throw a coat of Milani Garnet Gems on top of one nail just to see what it would look like. Stay tuned for pics.
