I've been on a bit of a hiatus, due to lack of inspiration, to be honest. But I've compiled a few things to get me started again. Recently, I found a nail place that gives me a manicure that lasts a full week, no chips. As someone who sits typing on a keyboard all day, every day, this was dumbfounding. I've narrowed down the factors to their base coat, which I'd heard great things about. Every time now I request the Orly Rubberized Base Coat that acts as an adhesive to the polish, so it lasts longer. Hands down, the best discovery I've made in a while.
