No matter how expensive the brand, how many thin coats I apply or if I prep, prime and seal my polish, it never seems to last more than a few days before chipping. Maybe it’s my busy lifestyle, the fact I soak my entire body in a hot, soapy bath every evening or maybe I just have oily nailbeds, either way, my fresh manicures never seem to last. They always end up looking like a hot mess after only a few short days (and trust me) I’ve tried a lot and featured a lot of polishes on this fashion blog over the years. Normally not a problem, I have no problem painting my nails every few days with a fresh colour, but sometimes (especially when you travel) you need it to last upwards of a week. The new Formula X The System XCEL To Go CLIX! Travel-Sized Gel-Like Nail Polish Set not only comes in mini bottles, perfect for travel, it helps to prolong your colour, for a chip-resistant, gel-like shine that lasts for up to 10 days.
