    Looking for an affordable, durable clear nail polish for every day use.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

      I don’t know much about which is better, so I just go and get whatever is on sale or the least expensive that I find. I have tried Sally Hansen XTREME wear, and I really like it.

      I keep my fingernails clear coated with LA Colors Nail Treatment Calcium Strong and Healthy nail polish and top coat my Hibiscus red toenails with it too for a nice shine and protection.

      Dear girls,

      Even high-end polish will chip if not applied correctly and the less expensive brands will hold up better as well.

      If you clip your nails, run a file over the end to reduce the ragged edge. When applying polish, be sure to coat the end as well. Finally, use a top coat.

      This isn’t my strongest area, and I probably need to up my nail game, but all my nail polishes are Revlon Nail Enamel which is in most supermarkets and drugstores.  I’ve never had an issue with them.

      OPI seems to hold up well for a day. Not expensive, easy to remove, and lots of colors.

      Looking for something in the $5 range. I used my stuff that i got at dollar tree. I think it is LA looks. Not as shiny, but definitely more durable.

      hi Julianna, not sure what your qualifications are for affordable or durable, but i have pretty good luck with LA Colors “top coat rapid dry”  (not  “basecoat topcoat” — that one didn’t do as well)

      i can also tell you the worst one i ever used was Maybelline “fast gel topcoat”

      Thanks!
      I used Sally Hansen quick drying clear polish this time….it looks good but chips very easy. I have Sally Hansen in other colors that seems to be more durable.
