When you do your own nails, do you use base coat?

I always do.

If I scrub, wipe with alcohol, then do basecoat, color, topcoat; my polish lasts a full week. :-)

  • I usually barely have time for one coat to dry, so tops coats, or base coats never really get there

  • Depends on the color, if it's light or sheer I don't. But, if it's dark or any member of the red family I do.

  • Bo but I always swipe my naills with nail polish remover first to get rid of any oils
