12 most durable nail polishes

Review of the best according to the editorial board. About selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

With the advent of gel polishes, many care problems have faded into the background. Now you don't have to worry about manicure for two to three weeks. Nails look well-groomed, chips and cracks on the coating are not formed, the shine remains for the entire time of wear. But not everyone became fans of shellac. Many girls note that periodic procedures lead to fragility of the nail plate. It becomes thinner, becomes a non-uniform color. Another disadvantage: difficult coating removal.

Because of these shortcomings, many of the fair sex have remained faithful to traditional varnishes. Manufacturers have not forgotten about them, having created innovative decorative products. Now there is no need to renew the coating every 2-3 days, to be afraid that at the most crucial moment the nails will look unkempt. Permanent varnishes can last for at least a week, while retaining the original color brightness.

For those who prefer a manicure without using a lamp, our experts presented a review of 12 varnishes, which, thanks to the latest technologies, will delight with an ideal coating without creating problems for the wearer and without requiring adjustment. When compiling the list, the opinions of professional nail masters and the reviews of ordinary customers were taken into account.
