Ready for the post with my nail polish collection?
HA! You have to wait until next week. This week you get to see my base coats.
I apply a base coat every time I use colored nail polish even though right now I only have 2 of those.
The base coat is extremely important because it keeps your nails nice looking even when you don’t have time for a full manicure.
It keeps the yellow monster away from your nails (most of the time).
It did happen to me that I got yellowish nails even with the base coat. Fortunately, it only happened once, and the nail polish was a green one.
When I was younger I wasn’t so thorough about it, mostly because I always had nail polish on. I didn’t really care if my nails were yellow because nobody saw that.
As time went by and I had less time to apply nail polish it became increasingly important for me to have healthy looking nails even when they were “naked”. Therefore, these babies went from the status of “maybe” to the status of “must”.
This is the 4th post in my Manicure Necessities series. You can find links to the rest of the posts here.
How many base coats do you have in your collection? Do you always use base coats or do you skip the step if you are in a hurry? Let me know in the comments.
