The secret lies in the thorough - but still speedy - prep, as nails are not only filed into sleek shape but nourished with Bio Sculpture's Vitamin Dose and Executive Base to keep them in tip-top condition. Perhaps most impressive was the 'first aid' work on two cracked nails, which were painstakingly patched up with a fine silk that couldn't be seen at all after the gel was applied over the top.

I've had many manis in my time, but I can say without hesitation that this was the longest-lasting I've ever tried. After two weeks there wasn't a single chip in sight, and apart from the slightest hint of inevitable nail regrowth, they were still looking salon-fresh. I didn't quite make it to the three-week mark (probably not helped by tapping on a keyboard on a daily basis), but I came incredibly close and have no doubt that it's doable.
