Maintain your manicure by brushing on 100% Pure Glass Top Coat Polish every two to three days to protect color and avoid chipping.

100% Pure

Birchbox Breakdown

We would never swipe on a mani without first prepping our nails with a smoothing basecoat. This formula from 100% Pure creates a clean canvas for color, plus nourishes our nails at the same time—for a mani that’s as good for us as it is good-looking.

How to Use

To maximize your base coat effectiveness, soak a cotton ball in acetone to remove oily residue from the nail bed. Then sweep on a layer of base coat.

Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic, Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Polyvinyl Butyral, Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Extract, Benzophenone, D&C Violet No. 2, D&C Red No.17

Excellent Quality!
Purchased

This base coat is much better than the other brands that I have tried. It has really made a difference in the length of time between manicures. I'm very pleased with it and will definitely re-purchase (the other brands went in the garbage after I tried this).

Good Stuff
Purchased

I bought this on a whim. I wanted a new base coat because the midwest winter had been hard on my nails and hands. The polish is good on its on, or as a base to color. It lasts the average length of time (3-5 days), as any other base with the exception of a few drug store brands that don't last very long. It does not stain my nails, which is a huge plus. It works with a multitude of different polish brands. I will repurchase it, as I feel it's a little gentler on my nails.

Favorite Basecoat

This is my favorite base coat. I find the one coat dries pretty quickly and, in combination with a different top coat, my nail color lasts usually around 5 days. This is longer than with other base coats I've tried. I also think it does a good job of protecting my nails, even dark colors come off easily and my nails are a lot healthier than before I started using this basecoat.

takes forever to dry
Purchased

Purchased both the base and top coat, hoping to use them on my terribly sensitive fingers. With the natural ingredients it did indeed doesnt cause me any allergic reaction. But it takes forever to dry! Trashing the product.

Great addition to 100% Pure Line!
Purchased

I discovered the 100% Pure products through Birchbox and I am in love. I've been collecting these products for myself and for my aunt, who has extremely sensitive skin. This nail base coat is great for getting your nails stronger and keep in them shiny!

Another great product from 100% Pure!
Purchased

I already love 100% Pure mascara so I was anxious to try their Horsetail basecoat since it is good for my nails. It left a smooth finish and I think my polish looks better than usual because of that.

So far so good
Purchased

I just used this for the first time today. It went on easily and dried quickly enabling my nail polish to go on more even. Best of all it's "pure"
