Undercoat counselor

At a Base Coat it is a special nail polish. It is transparent and is applied to the nail before applying the colored varnish. Its purpose is to protect the fingernail from discoloration. It can also help to keep the actual paint on the nail longer.

What a Base Coat distinguishes

On Base Coat is basically transparent, so colorless. An exception is the use of paints which, in addition to their base coat function, fulfill other consumers‘ needs. These are paints that care for the nail. They often provide minerals that move from the paint in the nail and strengthen it in this way. There are also undercoats that give the nail an extra grip and thus protect against nail breakage. Such paints often have a light pastel tone in their bottle. This is usually invisible when applied, but in any case has no discoloring effect. On Base Coat is sold with this label. So if you are looking for such a varnish, you should opt for a special one Base Coat decide and not just for a transparent nail polish. Because only a „genuine“ base coat has the properties that you expect from him.

How a base coat is used

If you want to paint your nails colored, you should first apply a base coat. This is especially true for red, brown and black shades. Among other things, the base coat has the function of preventing discoloration of the nail. This can happen when the pigments of the colored paint penetrate into the nail. The result is a brownish discoloration, which looks very unpleasant, especially on the fingernails. With a colorless base coat you prevent this feeding. To prepare, you should rub your nails with a small amount of nail polish remover and then wash your hands. In this way you remove residues of grease, for example hand creamcan come. Then apply the undercoat to the non-greasy, clean nails. Let it dry completely. Only then does he form a resistant layer as a base for the colored lacquer. If you want, you can also apply several coats of base coat before the colored varnish is on the line. This is particularly useful if the base coat also has the function of protecting against nail breakage. After drying, you can apply the color coat. Afterwards, you can opt for an overcoat, which protects the coating layers in a protective way.

Select the right base coat

Some users swear to choose a base coat that has the same manufacturer as the color coat. If you want to change your color coatings regularly and use different manufacturers, this way can be too cumbersome. Consideration should be given to the demands you have on your base coat. Is protection against discoloration enough for you? Or would you like additional protection against nail breakage or a supply of nutrients and minerals for your nails? If the duration of the drying process is important to you, you can look for instructions from the manufacturer. There are undercoats that are „quick-drying“ or „ultra-fast drying“. Also, if undercoat is colorless, it is worth spending some time for the selection. A good base coat protects and strengthens your fingernails and toenails and can help the color coat to adhere to the nail longer.
