Each week, we put a different claim found on Pinterest to the test (hence, Pinter-test! Get it?!)
While some pins seem too good to be true (and sometimes they are), many of the tips actually work! As I pinned my heart away, my chipped nails seemed extra prominent when reading this trick:
"Wipe your fingernails with vinegar before applying polish. It dries the nail to help polish stick better."
To test this out, I used five different brands of nail polishes. I applied the polish to bare nails on my left hand, while applying the vinegar and polish to my right hand.
After 5 days:
My left hand had a significant amount of chipping, while my right hand had barely any! I did notice the purple polish on my right hand thinned out a bit, but it didn't chip. Overall, I was very happy with the results. With such a crazy schedule, I will definitely be using this trick to minimize the number of times I have to paint my nails! Give it a try and let me know if it works for you!
