I think this is the culprit of my 18 hour manicure
March 4, 2014
Pros: Great base for the color
, Fewer chemicals than traditional polishes
Cons: Nail polish was peeling significantly less than 24 hours later
I used a variety of brands for my recent manicure, but am blaming the extreme brevity of the basecoat, which I am assuming would be at fault for my nail polish coming off less than 24 hours later. I used this basecoat, a Scotch color, and Priti top coat. Now, the overall look is beautiful - my nails looked great. But I have a toddler and very little free time, so when I do my nails (which is rarely) I really want them to last. I also don't want to use really chemical-laden products, so I guess there's a tradeoff. But within 24 hours of doing my nails (and I waited a bit between the base coat, each of the two color layers, and the topcoat) they were really peeling on my right hand (I'm right handed). A huge thumbnail bit came off just changing a diaper! What? Anyway, I know the manicure won't last as long without whatever is typically in conventional products, but less than 24 hours is crazy.

Pros: easy to apply
, nice packaging
, dry quicly
I use this base under all my nail polish. It protects my nails from the pigment of the polish who can make them look a bit yellow. I now can take off my nail polish and wait few days before to reapply as my nails look natural and pretty.
I'll not go without this product anymore.
