Do you need a base coat when you apply nail polish?

You don't need to go to a salon and spend tons of money to get the perfect manicure or pedicure. Experts say you can do it yourself at home, provided you follow all the right steps.



Those steps begin with a clear base coat, which helps the polish stick to your nail more easily. A base coat also makes a barrier that helps protect your nails from the damaging effects of nail polish. It prevents staining and peeling, and it can let your polished nails a more even texture.

Base coats come in plain and ridge-filler varieties. Ridge-filling base coats are a little thicker than regular base coats. They fill in any lines, ridges and grooves to give the nails a smoother looking appearance.

Lots of base coats are fortified with substances such as protein, vitamin E or calcium. These ingredients can help keep nails healthier and prevent breaking, splitting and peeling.

When the base coat dries (and it should dry relatively quickly), apply two coats of colored nail polish rather than one, to give the nails a richer look. If you really want to skip the colored polish altogether, you can use a base coat on its own to make the nails look shiny but natural.

Finish off the manicure or pedicure with a top coat to seal in the polish, that can make the nails shine and prevent chipping. Some products evern combine a base and top coat, but they may not work as well as the individual top and base coats.

Anyone with a sensitivity to nail polish should be careful -- due to base coats have a higher resin content than regular nail polish, and are the cause of many nail polish allergies.

If it may seem like a hassle at the time, base coats will extend the life of your manicure and help you avoid yellowed nails if you decide that fire-engine red isn't really for you after all.
