2X Super Chip Resistance Review

I have a different sort of product to share with you today - this is not a nail polish, but a treatment that can help your nail polish last longer. Now, I usually change my nail polish every day because I am constantly reviewing new colors, but when I want to wear a polish longer, my thin flexible nails frequently let me down. I am lucky if I can get one or two days without a chip. So I was intrigued to find out if 2X Super Chip Resistance could help - and it did! I've got more about it after the break...
