    I was not sure if this would actually work for me. I need to wash my hands frequently. This polish is a keeper.

      I have used this formula for home manicures for years. I have tried to go without, but the polish always chips quicker without using the Chip Skip.

        Comments about OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat:

        I used this last week and was really impressed. The only polish I used was a Zoya PixieDust, so no base or top coat. Normally I hate doing my nails, because I spend 2-3 hours waiting for it to dry and cure only to have it chip after a day, and even with daily touch-ups, it looks like trash after about 4 days. With this stuff, I painted them on Sunday, touched up a few spots on the tips on Tuesday, and they are still pretty decent - not perfect, but good enough - on Saturday. (I did use dish gloves all week, too.) Instead of chipping unevenly, it wore off around the edges so that it still looks neat. I'm definitely going to keep using this to get more mileage out of a manicure.

          My nail polish was chipping like crazy. I didn't always have this problem i didn't get what was going on. I tried cleaning and drying out the nail with plain acetone but this was so much more effective, easy, and time saving. It's sooo easy and quick.

            Comments about OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat:

            I am so pleased with OPI products! I used the OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat, OPI Top Coat, and OPI Natural Nail Base Coat with, of course, an OPI color coat(s). I also buffed, filed, and rubbed my nails down with rubbing alcohol (to strip off extra oil that the hand wash didn't).
            I didn't grow up prepping my nails and was always displeased with polishes because they always chipped the second-third day of wear (probably because I never knew I was supposed to use top coat, base coat, etc.). I work with my hands all day long and wash them a lot as well! I have had no chipping (just wearing down of the polish at the base of the nail. I have worn the polish for about 5 full days now! I will continue to wear it about 2 more days! :-)

              Comments about OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat:

              I use Chip Skip under OPI Nail Envy base coat after shaping nails and washing my or a friends hands. The combo of both products along with a great top coat will get a mani to last WAY longer than if you do not properly dehydrate the nail plate. I feel like people who don't think this works may not be using it with a good base and top coat. I can't do a mani without this!

                  I am pretty much a novice nail person - I can't have manicured nails where I work, so I rarely paint. When I do, the lacquer doesn't last the day. With this product, my color lasted! I will keep this up.

                      My manicures have not held up any better with it. I get the same results without it, chipping within a few days.
