The Importance of Using a Base Coat
Before you begin painting your nails, consider the importance of using a base coat.
For nails with any splits, peels, or nail bed ridges, a base coat will create a consistent texture. Just like an artist needs a smooth canvas before making a masterpiece, using a base coat will form a smooth working surface before you polish.
Dark and bold nail polishes look amazing; however, they can discolor your nail after removing. Prevent staining by creating a protective layer between your nails and the polish with a base coat.
Extends life of manicure
A base coat serves as a primer that sticks to your nail and to the applied polish, holding it all together for a beautiful mani. The elastic quality found in base coats allows flexibility, so your nail can bend easily, preventing chips.
Some base coats pack added benefits to address a variety of nail needs. Ingredients like protein, vitamin E or calcium can prevent breakage and make nails healthier.
