Three Reasons You Should Be Using a Base Coat Nail Polish

Base coats are an often forgotten part of many peoples manicures and pedicures. For some, applying a base coat seems like an unnecessary waste of time, while for others it's a practice that they've never put much thought into one may or the other. No matter what your reason, if you haven't been applying a base coat under your regular nail polish, you should definitely start doing so. Here are three reasons for why you should always spend the extra time needed to apply a base coat nail polish. 

1. Base coat nail polish prevents regular nail polish from chipping. 

Regular nail polish is prone to chipping because it doesn't often form a consistent bond with your nails. By first applying a base coat, however, you can help stop chipping in its tracks. A thin layer of base coat will actually help your regular polish stick to your nails, which as you've probably guessed, will lead to less chipping, ultimately prolonging the lifetime of your manicure or pedicure. 

2. Base coat nail polish keeps your nails healthy and strong

Many base coat nail polishes include ingredients that can help improve the health of your nails. When choosing a bottle of base coat nail polish, look to buy one that is rich in vitamins (like vitamin E) and minerals (like calcium). Polishes containing proteins can also help to boost the strength and elasticity of your nails. By applying a base coat with the right ingredients, you can help keep your nails healthy and strong. 

3. Base coat nail polish prevents colored polishes from discoloring your nails. 

Though most colored polishes won't discolor your nails, the unfortunate fact is that some will. Darker polishes seem to be the worst in this respect, but any color can lead to unsightly nail discoloration. To ensure that your nails will still look their best when it's time for the polish to come off, always apply a thin base coat before painting your nails with a colored polish.
