Chip Skip by O.P.I



O.P.I 'Chip Skip' is my new little savior when it comes to keeping my nail varnish in place for a working week at the office.  I received Chip Skip in one of my nail sets for Christmas.  I normally always opt for my trusty (would say 'holy grail' but I hate that term) O.P.I 'Nail Envy' but I decided to use Chip Skip instead on a whim.  Now, it does state that you are supposed to apply this product before using your base coat/lacquer but the consistency is so thin, that I wanted to try it as a top coat/sheen! You don't need to use a huge amount to get results - it is literally like applying water to your nails.



As you can hopefully see, my nails do have a shine to them!  I applied Chip Skip to my nails after two coats of Essie 'To Buy or Not To Buy' - the outcome didn't make my nails look quite as thick/heavily-coated as when I use Nail Envy, however.  I found that Chip Skip dried incredibly fast, which is something I always appreciate when I'm trying to do my nails in a hurry on a weekend.  Throughout the week, I have also tried giving my nails a top up and they have become noticeably stronger!

  2. That's seems like such a great product, because I always end up chipping my nails REALLY BAD the day after I painted them and it gets me soooo annoyed!

    Your nail polish colour is so pretty!
    Love your blog, I'm a new follower :)

  4. Sounds great! I've received a twin pack of OPIs Nail Envy and RapiDry for christmas and I love Nail Envy but so far I'm not impressed with the top coat as it took ages to dry! So where's the sense in that.. love that Essie colour your wearing! xx

    1. I hateee slow-drying nail varnish! If you can get your hands on Chip Skip, try it as a top coat too -- even though it's supposed to be used prior to applying your coat of colour, it's VERY thin, so it dries really quickly! I can only compare it to water, and you don't need to apply too much either to see a difference :) xx
