If you want to create a beautiful, salon-worthy manicure at home, then you can’t just slather on nail polish. Instead, you must understand that achieving perfectly painted nails is a process, a process that begins with applying a good base coat nail polish. The point of the base coat, which should be applied before you put on your nail lacquer, is to enable the nail polish to adhere to the nails more easily, to protect your nails from the polish, to smooth out the texture of the polish for an even coat overall, and to keep nail polish from staining, chipping, or peeling. Once your base coat has dried, then, and only then, are you ready to apply the actual nail polish. After the nail polish has been applied, you can seal it in place, prevent chipping, and guarantee shine by applying a top coat. Fortunately, you don’t have to run all over town trying to find the different nail care products you need. Instead, visit the Deborah Lippmann website; there, you can find several different types of base coat nail polish, including “Fast Girls,” a quick-drying base coat; “Hard Rock,” which strengthens your nails and doubles as a top coat; “Rehydrating,” a moisturizing base coat; “Ridge Filler,” a smoothing base coat, and “Turn Back Time,” an anti-aging base coat. You can choose any of these great products based on your needs, or you can opt for the time-saving “Gel Lab” kit, which features both a base coat and a top coat.
