I'm waiting anxiously for a call from the vet about my cat, so I'll distract myself with a post about my latest miracle beauty discovery: Orly Bonder.
I love nail polish. Over the past year or two, I've had decreasing success keeping a manicure intact for more than a day. I mostly use OPI or Essie polishes, and Seche Vite topcoat, so I didn't understand why my nails were chipping so quickly. I tried a string of different base coats (including Nailtek) with the same results. Then I got a professional manicure before Christmas, and it stayed perfect for over a week. So I knew something better was possible. Orly Bonder was the first internet-recommended base coat I tried, and hopefully the last! I've used it twice now, and both times my manicure has endured as long as the salon one did. I'm officially impressed.
Orly Bonder is available at most drugstores and beauty stores for $8-$10. It apparently contains rubber, so if you're committed to natural or organic beauty products, it isn't for you. But if you just want your polish to stay put, this is the shiz.
