    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!

          Comments about OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat:

          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.

                      I love OPI products and have been using them at home for many years. I always get chips because I'm so rough using my nails as tools or just normal daily keyboard use. When I saw the OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat I had to have it. I followed the directions and I have 8 days wear on the current polish. Before OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coast I would have to change polish every three to four days.

                        Utilize it in the order and your nails will not suffer from chipping:
                        1. Nail Envy (good nail hardener first)!
                        2. Nail polish color (Essie, OPI, Sally Hansen etc)
                        3. Chip Skip
                        4. Top Coat (Rapid Dry/Seche Vite)

                        my best kept nail secret!
