Base Coat

Base coats are used in nail coatings and are designed to have good adhesion to the nail plate. In a traditional nail polish it can also prevent any staining by the colour coating.

It is essential to use with a UV gel system (unless the specific brand has been formulated with its own adhesion properties) as it will adhere to the nail plate and also to the subsequent layers.
