I've recently been hearing lots of great reviews for Essie's No Chips Ahead, so I thought it would be the perfect gift for a dirty Santa gift exchange. And it was! I paired it with an adorable gray Essie nail polish (cannot remember the name of it now, go figure!) and it was stolen once. I usually take it as a sign of a good gift if it gets stolen.
When I was picking up a bottle for the gift exchange, I should have grabbed an extra bottle for myself. I recently went back to Target to pick up a bottle and they were sold out. I decided to try out Sally's Hansen's no chip acrylic top coat, thinking, "it can't be too bad." Ummmm, it sucked. My nails were chipping not even 24 hours later.

I decided to give it once last chance as I tried out a different nail polish color from my fabulous new set. So far, 24 hours later, only one little chip. But I am trying to be more careful not to chip them, in a dainty, girly way.

One day soon I'll find a nice little coupon for Ulta and go grab a bottle of Essie's No Chips Ahead and let you know if it's as great as it claims to be!
And, for those of you worried I might quit my day job to become a hand model, you can cast those fears aside. It's quite obvious my hands are not made for modeling.
