The Battle of the Nailpolishes

Just a little over a week ago I started the 10-day Rimmel London nail polish challenge, but it didn't last very long. In fact, it started chipping after 4 days - which is actually ok considering the other nail polishes I use start to chip after 1 or 2 days.

So I went back to my old Wet N' Wild purple nail polish, but this time I put three coats and a clear top coat. That still didn't last more than 2 days.

Now I've upgraded to L'Oreal nail polish. Since it is fall and all, I thought I'd go for a darker shade - "Stroke of Midnight". It's a very, very deep burgundy color. I love the way it glides on silky smooth, however it does take about 3 coats to look decent. The first coat was streaky.

Well, I'm on day 2 and it's chipped a little. They don't look too bad considering I wash my dishes every day and I do alot of head scratching ;) Why I still wash dishes, I don't know why - I have a dishwasher! Must be a habit from college when I didn't have one.

Anyways, here's a picture of what my nails look like...Let's see how long these hold up!
