My Next Manicure Better Come With a Happy Ending

Why is it that my manicures always start to chip exactly 3 days after I get them? Chip, chip, chip. Even if I don't touch anything for those three days with my delicate, freshly-painted hands. But then it takes industrial strength acetone / paint thinner and an old Brillo pad to remove the rest. And why does it feel like I also scrubbed my fingerprints off? Y'all know what I'm talking about.

I'm making this up...but its what I tell myself. The tips of your nail don't have any "skin" to hold onto. Whenever your nail tips get wet, the shape of your nail changes (mine get flatter, less curve) and then when the nail dries it goes back to is normal shape. Nail polish isn't flexible so this constant shape change of your nails causes the polish to chip. I'm trying to invent elastic nail polish...any one want to invest?

Cut me in for a share of the profits and I will totally help bankroll that.
