Seeing nail polish crack right after the manicure is upsetting. Here's why it happens:

  1. You soaked your hands right before or after manicure. Nail absorbs water better than skin
  2. Oil - sometimes cuticle oil doesn't let polish adjust firmly enough and makes nail polish crack. Buffering before applying nail polish will help
  3. Thick/skipped coats and low quality materials
