    Comments about OPI Chip Skip Manicure Prep Coat:

    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.

                        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.
