COMMENTS: I realized it would probably be helpful to show how my nail foils are holding up. I applied them on Sunday afternoon and took these photos this morning (Tuesday). I did throw on another layer of topcoat on Sunday evening. Last night, I spent about an hour washing up dishes, pots and pans from all my cooking over the weekend, and I don't use gloves to wash. Here is what they look like now:
My right hand - which takes the most abuse - mostly tipwear on my index nail.
My left hand - again some tipwear on the index, but not as much as on the right.
Still looks pretty nice, and I've gotten quite a few compliments (though it's hard to explain to people that it's not nail polish...). I'll probably take it off tonight though - I've got that itch to see something different on my nails
