    Maybe like me constant hand washing and hot water along with everyday things cleaning, cooking, the polish just gets broken down perhaps… I also wonder if its due to me naturally having hard nails and applying the hard shellac by a professional if my nails are just more prone to cracking or polish chipping due to the length they are?

    I recently done my own nails in shellac and they have stayed on for over 2 weeks now but I done two other peoples and they have began to peel off I am wondering why this is when I’ve used all the correct things and the same things as I did with mine in. Just wondering why this could be.

    i thought i was the only on experiencing this chipping problems of gel nail polish that starts to peel off after a day or 2 of applying it. i have a few products from epic nails base, top cots and polish and the lamp too is from epic nails. i thought this gel nail polish is meant to last. to remove this gel polish you need acetone which is very strong so i do not understand why it should not last long if your hands are in water a lot such as for people who wash there hands a lot e.g hairdressers or nurses. i mean what water verses acetone equals same effect which is chipping and pealing i do not get it acetone is much much stronger and if water causes the chipping and pealing then why do we need acetone to remove the gel completely. am a nurse and yes i wash my hands and use hand gel sanitizer but am only at work 2-3 days a week max. i do not get it why my nail polish never lasts the 4- 5days am off. some times the polish starts to chip and crack and peal the very day i do then few hours after from washing a few dishes or even after a shower its just not making sense. when i first started using gel nail polish i could not even bit it off with my teeth coz i used to bit my nails that why i started using it but and now i just use my fingers nails to peal it off my nails completely most of the time i do not even have to soak them in acetone at all. the other thing is that if you have acrylics nail extensions tips the do use a gel on top that does not chip peal or crack even when i have been at work as a nurse 5 days a week washing hands and using hand sanitizer during an 8 to 10 hour shift. could it be that the use of the acetone eventually starts to affect the effectiveness of future gel nail applications? this is because i used to go to a nail salon when this gel polish started then suddenly it stopped lasting i changed salons but problem continued hence i stopped going coz it was not cheap and not ;lasting as long and since then got my own home kit and i have a collection of different brands and some are really poor the two brands that are a bit better are from epic nails and luminail and i find that the gel nail polish with glitter in them do last a bit more a week max than the clear ones which last anywhere for a few hours after applying them. i have changed my lamp bulbs few times, applied as thin layers as possible clean my nails really well and even cure my nails a lot longer sometimes even 10minutes max still have issues
    its really frustrating.
