What do you like? I'm annoyed that Revlon, Maybelline, etc. have stopped making the quick drying. I picked up a Sally Hanson Lacquer because I loved the color - I HATE it... I have done my own nails for yrs. (and gotten many complements) - I did a base coat (Maybelline..always used Revlon before but it's gone - did one coat of the S.H. (I always do two coats) - but did one coat to let it dry well - then went about "business as usual", i.e., preparing dinner, etc. (fully prepared to do a 2nd coat after) - it had already chipped/worn!!!! (and I waited a full hour)

I LOVED the quick drying formulas from all the companies - they wore well, lasted me a week or so (and I have fairly long nails) - HOW can they stop making these and the "new" polish chips w/i an hr. or so?

I swear by O.P.I, Essie, and the "no chip" formula of Sally Hansen nail polishes.
I took my artificial nails off, and need to strengthen my natural nails.
It's a task, to keep polishes on my natural nails, because they always chip and peel off.
But, I also have to add that, in addition to it, I am so abusive and rough on my nails....kind of like wear and tear, since I am working with my hands....9 hours a day.

You have got to be kidding me, they stopped making it? Why?

I've had a permanent french UV gel over my nails for the past 7 months, and plan on having it removed in the next month or so. I'm an avid gardener, and I'm hard on my nails in the warmer months. But when I do paint my nails during the summer I would use the quick dry polish. It really wore the best. I guess I will also be looking for something else now. I guess I'll look into the Sally Hansen no-chip polish, or buy polish from my nail salon.

If you want a more natural look with a shine, the new 3-way buffers are nice!

This is why I got solar nails, I got tired of waiting for polish to dry only to have it smear. I love my solar nails, I go in every three weeks for a refill and I'm done.

But what about us that polish our own nails? I'm going to write to Revlon and Maybelline.

This S.H. that I wanted for a special occasion today has a big chip out of middle of thumb nail, arg..... totally NOT worth the work for this nail polish.

I just got some new polish from Avon and it is the "speed dry". Have used Avon polish for 30 years and love it.

Gotta say I paint too slowly to be a fan of the "quick drys." I just bought a new bottle last week and by the time I got to nail #2 the paint was gummy and wouldn't spread evenly (it was L'Oreal by the way). I ended up with gunky looking toe nails, so I just removed it all and left 'em naked...what a waste!

The normal/slow dry stuff is so much easier for me to apply. No gumminess!

I do second the OPI vote. That's fairly quality stuff.
