How Long Does Vinylux Nail Polish Last?

Written by Tara

This is a shellac polish that requires only 2 coats and then it hardens with exposure to ambient light. Importantly for nail health, Vinylux is removed with regular nail polish remover so is less damaging to the nails.

Conclusion: The VINYLUX Long Wear Polish System lasts an average of 5 full days without chipping. For a manicure at home with average exposure to environmental factors, I recommend the VINYLUX Long Wear Polish by CND.

Generally Is Vinylux better than shellac? If you’re busy and don’t want to worry about your nails for a couple of weeks, then CND Shellac is probably for you. But if you want to be able to switch up your nail polish whenever you feel like it, opt for CND Vinylux. You’ll still get at least a week’s wear out of your polish if you apply it properly.
