Sally got it right!!!

I have been disappointed with Sally Hansen products in the past. For example, the 10 day nail enamel which really lasts about 3 days if that. On the other hand, I have also enjoyed some Sally products but I was hesitant to buy the $6.99 Mega Shine top coat polish which promises to make your nails shine. The added bonus is that this top coat should make your manicure last longer without any chip or peeling. I eventually made the purchase and my skepticism was swept under the rug when I saw that my nail polish remained in tact and shiny for longer than it usually lasts. In fact when I hit day 5 the manicure was still in great condition but I accidentally scraped some off with my cheese grater while making ravioli (from scratch I might add lol) so I had to redo my nails. I would buy this product again and again. If you buy this polish check the box for an instant $1 off coupon.
How long does your manicure last? Have you tried Diamond Shine by Sally Hansen? It is supposed to be superior to mega shine but I heard it doesn’t work as well. Please weigh in and discuss.

i've been meaning to find a great top coat.. the nail shop using anything.. bubbly stuff, whatever, so i have to take them my own to ensure they get it right. i guess i'll be picking this up.

I rarely make it through a day without chipping. I'm going to have to try that.

Hmmm, I do the uv gel mostly. But straight manicures--I would say 2 weeks.

I just bought this today (cuz you said to, lol) and you're right, it does work very well. It dried my nails so quickly, this is the first time I don't have smudges!

@TD hello bride to be. 2 weeks is very good.
@TM glad it worked for you. I like it and I have had smudge free manicures ever since :-).
