Miracle Gel to the Rescue!
I always find myself painting my nails every other day due to chipping. Most likely the culprit of this is the hot water I use to scrub the dishes with. No dishwasher for this girl! I recently read your newly painted nails need at least twelve hours to set before any hot water should touch them. While I try to do that, it simply is not feesable with all of the dishes or even taking a hot shower. Enter the new product from Sally Hansen called Miracle Gel. This does not require a light to set the gel, an absolute major plus, and only has a two step system. Basically, a color polish of your choice, and then the gel top coat. Supposedly, this should last one full week before any signs of chipping occur. I was able to go about four days before I saw a chip, but that's a big improvement over one day. Looks like I've found a new go-to polish.
