Great tips! I have one to share-- if you use alot of hand sanitizer like me; final top coat needs to be one that contains acrylic. it will hold up much longer.

I have a problem keeping nail polish on my nails it only lasts a couple days cause I consitantly use water how can I keep polish on my nails?

You need to but the top coat called "Seche Vite" It really is the very best thing. Oh, and get some "nail polish thinner" because it gets a little thick before you get to the end of the bottle. I like mine to be super thin.
