There is no doubt that a beautiful manicure gives a girl elegance and individuality. To date, one of the leading positions in the creation of manicure is occupied by gel polish. Specialists of the nail industry try to select those tops and bases that have the highest index of durability. Tops and bases not only improve the adhesion of gel polish to the surface of the nail plate, but also generally strengthen the nail, make it stronger and less prone to fracture.
Before choosing tops and bases for use, you should first familiarize yourself with their functions and purpose. They are responsible for the quality of the coating and how long it will last. For example, to achieve a bright shine, it is necessary to apply a top. It protects the color layer from external factors, such as scratches. And the base, in turn, prevents the color pigment contained in gel lacquers from entering the nail structure. The key feature of performing such a manicure is that it is necessary to adhere to a certain sequence of actions: first, the base is applied, then the varnish, and then the top gel. The top protects the varnish under it, preventing it from being physically exposed.
It is important to understand that the tops and bases used should be of the same brand - for maximum compatibility.
