Say goodbye to chipped nail polish with a little help from these products

Summer beauty trends are usually about three things: hair, lips and nails. It’s that time of the year where changing your nail polish once every few days is so understandable. But, you still need a good topcoat to seal the summer beauty deal. So, take your pick, ladies.


The Sally Henson Ultimate Shield, $3.99

You get a 2 for 1 with this base and top coat. This is one of the industry favorites and has been for some time. For the low price, you’re sure to get a bang for your buck and long lasting nail polish.


The Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, $9.95

This has actually been a quietly obsessed topcoat for a little while. Many women haven’t even heard of this brand, but nail technicians all over have been raving about this brand for some time now.


The Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat, $5.99

One of their best nail products, ever. And we mean that. You will really get extra life from this topcoat, but be sure to re-apply every 4 days. Just a thin layer on top before you walk out the door will do.


The MAC Studio Overlacquer Top Coat, $12

MAC somehow figured out a way to create one of the top of the line top coats ever. It’s so worth the $12 investment. Your only issue will be using extra nail polish remover to get your nail polish off, since the top coat is a little thicker than average.


Essie Good to Go Top Coat, $9

What we love about this topcoat is that it seals the deal while adding high shine. Just make sure you fully let this coat dry before handling anything too serious. We suggest sitting still for about 10 minutes, at the minimum.
