Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve fallen victim to stained nails (we’re looking at you, bright red polish) more times than we can count, and it’s time to put an end to it. By applying this German brand’s durable base coat underneath nail polish each and every time, you can make sure that stains don’t stand a chance. This milky base coat adheres to the surface of your nails to create a smooth, even foundation for polish. Polish bonds to the base coat, adding days to the lifespan of your manicure.

How it Works

This milky base coat adheres to the surface of your nails to create a smooth, even foundation for polish. Polish bonds to the base coat, adding days to the lifespan of your manicure.

How to Use

After filing nails and pushing back cuticles with an orange stick, apply a single layer of base coat to each nail. There’s no need to wait for a base coat to dry before adding the polish of your choice.

It broke!

After one use the brush fell off of the lid. Also, the formula was nothing special. I could have gotten better quality for a better price.

Amazing!

I've never had any luck with getting my at home manicures to last longer than a few days. The polish always chips so easily. However, with this Base Coat, my manicures stay for a week with no chipping! It truly is amazing. I'll never paint my nails again without using this base coat first!

Nice!

I typically do my nails myself, but they don't last longer than a day because the color chips so easily. This definitely helped my polish last longer and apply smoother.
