Top coat and base coat are super important tools for a pretty and long-lasting manicure. But many of us tend to skip them and just stick to nail polish. Base coat actually protects your nails and prevents staining, while a good top coat keeps your mani intact, preventing chipping. Most importantly a top coat helps us deal with bed sheet nails that we all dread when doing our manis before bed. But we often get questions from our community about which top coat and base coat they should use for their manis. So we thought we would provide! Read below to find out which base coat and top coat you should use.
