Ask Suzi: Peeling Polish

Nail expert and OPI executive VP & artistic director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann answers any burning questions you have on OPI, polish, or nails. This question was posed by Elissa from New Jersey via email.

Q: I stopped biting my nails after 34 years (I am 39) in September. I traded my biting obsession for a polish and manicure obsession and I've been absolutely thrilled about it. The problem I have is with peeling polish. While at my desk at work, if I see the tiniest lifting of polish from my nails, I end up peeling the polish off all ten nails by the end of the day. The bigger problem with this is that I end up redoing my nails every night before bed. Between the peeling and the remover, I'm sure I'm doing lots of damage to my nails, not to mention wasting a lot of product. Can you give me any pointers for avoiding this habit? Doing some simple nail art seems to help because I don't want to mess up a really cool nail. But I don't have the time for that every day and a lot of nail art isn't really "me" anyway. Also can you recommend a really good base coat that will make the polish stick and not peel? Thanks!
