The first week was a struggle. I didn't have the right combination of polishes. They chipped and peeled before the end of the week.
On week 2, I found a better top coat. The polish lasted throughout the whole week with only a couple of small chips. Not even noticeable chips.
By week 3, the nails do seem stronger and my cuticles have become less cracked. I still didn't have any side splits, but... now I do. One nail has split like this. Except it's the other thumb nail. I think I may have caught it on something. I'm trying to just baby it and not give it too much attention.
