Don't Forget Your Base Coat and Top Coat!


When you're painting your nails you should always try to apply a base coat before your chosen polish color, followed by a top coat after you color is applied.

The base coat helps to protect your nails. There are a ton of different types of base coats to choose from. You can get base coats that harden your nails or repair your nails. It can also help to keep your manicure pretty for longer.

A top coat seals in your color and helps to make your manicure last longer. It can also help to make your nails super shiny. One of the most popular brands of top coats is Seche Vite.

      I have to vote for OPI. This brand is my favorite and it provides a professional finish which seems to resist chipping. I love the James Bond colors they are providing.

      Love all things nails and make up! Voting this up.

      shiningirisheyes I love OPI and I love pretty much all of their collections. I don't think I can pick a favorite one here though. I love them all pretty much equally. Thank you for stopping by. I always appreciate your comments :)
