Much more than a nail varnish but still with your natural nails for a flawless finish for 14 days or more.  They actually last me 3 weeks without chipping or flaking, once they are done you can forgetUnknown-1 about them, what could be better for your 2 weeks in the sun.

Which power varnish is your favourite?
