What is a base coat?

Base coat looks very similar to clear polish, but it’s not the same! A good quality base coat helps your nail polish to stick to your nail. Base coats are enriched with vitamins like vitamin E or calcium or other proteins,which keeps your nails healthy and prevent them from chipping and breaking.

Sometimes if you apply a dark nail polish like black, you will see that your nails are stained by that particular color, Or sometimes a yellow stain is very visible! Such stained nails look very ugly! Imagine you want to do a french manicure and the white tip looks yellowish..ewww!!Base coats are really very helpful to prevent such staining as they form a protective shield between the nail polish and the nails.

Also if you have uneven nails,it will create a smooth surface to give you a perfect manicure!
