Despite my love for nail polish, I am probably the worst at actually doing a good job painting my nails and almost always get them done at the spa. To me, whichever base coat they use (OPI or Essie most of the time) was good enough for me. Until I noticed my nails chipping and breaking more often than they usually would and I started exploring strengthening nail products as well as different protective base coats.
Here is where I came across Orly’s Polish Bond; a base coat with a ‘rubberized’ formula that creates a barrier between the nail and nail polish. The formula is noticeably different than the usual base coats and helps nail polish adhere to it for a longer period as well as protects your nails from breaking and chipping. Another reason why I prefer it is that it dries almost immediately so there’s no wait time to apply the nail polish.
Other than protecting the nails, having it as a base really helps with a smoother and easier application, I’ve started challenging myself and painting my own nails. Now I’m on the lookout for products to strengthen my nails – please feel free to leave any suggestions below
Orly Polish Bond is available on OrlyBeauty.com or at Boots.
