I have never been one to paint my nails. I could never justify the effort and time or expense (if I went to a salon) to have it done only to have chips with 48 hours. It was just so frustrating. To be fair, I am hard on my nails. I have four kids and a dog so I am cooking, cleaning, buckling car seats, dressing others, yard work, etc., etc. I had heard about Olive and June and decided to give it a go this summer. I followed the online manicure tutorial to the letter and sure enough my first manicure lasted 8(!!!!!) days before I had a single chip. I am currently day 7 of my current manicure and not a chip in sight! In fact, I decided to paint an accent nail on each hand last night just for kicks and it looks amazing. I never would have been able to do that before with 6 day (now 7) nails. I could not be more pleased and will gladly be the first in line to purchase a pedicure set if Olive and June decides to make one. Please?!?!
