Nail Polish for Busy Hands

June Evanoff

I’m home with my kids all day, which is obviously wildly glamorous, involving much scrubbing of bathrooms, folding of laundry and cooking of meals. It’s obvious why most nail polish doesn’t last.

I’ve had professional manicures a handful of times (no pun intended) and every time I end up seething when, two days later, my nails are already chipped. I even tried gel manicures which are supposed to last about two weeks and three days into vacation they were chipped. Very frustrating. No, I am not giving anyone my $15 (or $30 or, let’s be honest, one time $40) for something I can do myself.

I used to just never wear nail polish, it just wasn’t worth the effort of carefully applying it only to have it peeling and chipping in two days. No thanks. However, after much searching I have found four brands that hold up pretty darn well even with the roughest use. Click over to see my nail polish for busy hands picks.
