Why So Many Coats?
When you think back to the last time you got a manicure - how many coats (base, top, and polish) were used?
We bet it seemed like a lot!
But have you ever wondered why we use so many?
There's actually a very important reason for each and every coat - here's the scoop:
Base coat: We use this to prevent the natural nail bed from turning yellow when painted, plus it primes the nail before painting it (similar to how you'd prime a wall before you paint it).
Polish (2 coats): We always recommend two coats of nail polish color to ensure you get a rich color over the entire nail.
Top coat: This seals the polish and gives a shiny, glossy appearance that enhances the color and help your manicure to last.
If you prefer an at-home manicure, be sure you invest in a quality base and top coat so you can make the most of your time and efforts!
