I finally caved and got Sleek polish in royalty. Gorgeous winter colour. It took a little while to dry but had a nice opaque colour with 2 coats and no chipping so far. It was only £2.99 from Superdrug. As you can see, my nails are shorter again. I snapped my thumb nail and decided to chop the rest off. I actually think I prefer them this length, it's easier for them to look neat.
