Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color

What: In an attempt to keep her thin, peeling nails polished and pretty for more than a day (which is stretching it), Robin tries Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color in Sheer Bliss Frost, $7.49.

The Lowdown: I have been cursed with the worst nails any girl could have. Aside from them always snagging and breaking, my nails seem to have some weird bipolar reaction to polish. I just can’t get the stuff to stay on. Within hours, it’s chipping and peeling off. I’ve even done the soaking them in rubbing alcohol trick. That maybe gives me an extra 12 hours or so. Diamonds are supposed to be a girl’s best friend, so maybe this is one will be my friend? The polish goes on easily and after two coats, dries in around 15 minutes. The color is opaque, but feminine and pretty with just enough shimmer. I finish them off with topcoat. My nails do feel thicker and stronger with this polish on. It takes four days before I notice the first chip, on the corner of my pointer finger. Considering most other brands don’t stick half as long, I am pleasantly pleased.

Yea or Nay: Yea, because not only did the polish give me four days of pretty, pale pink nails, I received quite a few compliments on my chip-free look. Anything that brings on some praise is okay in my book.

Buy it: @ CVS.
