What ingredient(s) in nail polish causes the polish to last longer? I specialize in natual nail services and make a habit of visiting other salons to see what they're doing. One in particular gave me a pedicure and the polish never chipped and was removed only due to new growth. Sheila 12/03Sometimes its the top coat on top of natural nails that makes the colored polish chip. Fast drying top coats used with UV lamps definately chip on natural nails and the average tech is unaware of it. Use a natural nail "system" with a base and top coat for natural nails for the best results. Also consult the polish manufacturer for more information on ingredients and how they work.
