Nail Care & Manicures/polish gets cloudy


I like using dark red polish on my toenails.  After a few days, polish gets milky cloudy after showering and then clears up after a while.  I use China Glaze polish and Seche top coat but I have tried other top coats and it still happens.  Any idea why and what I can do to stop this?

Luci, My best guess without seeing your toes, is that it is just a thin layer of soap.  Rub your toe nails off after your shower with your towel.  The products you are using are good products so there should not be a problem of this sort.  The only other suggestion, if you have already  tried wiping them, would possibly be your own body chemistry.  Hope that helps!!  Thank you for visiting all experts!
