My base coats: a mandatory step for the best manicure

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.

  1. Base coats also make your manicure last longer! I try to always use a base coat, but I forget a lot since I paint my nails on a daily basis. I have three base coats in my collection, but I’ve never used a base coat! Love this post!

    1. I used to do the same thing. I was changing my nail polish very often and I considered base coats an optional step. That changed drastically when I no longer had the option of always wearing nail polish. Now, I never put on color on my nails without a base coat. It makes a world of difference. I am really happy that you likes my post

    1. Whoa! 3? I don’t think I’d have the patience to apply so many layers. Base coat + 2 layers of nails polish + top coats + (maybe) fast dry is more than enough for me :)))
