How to Help Extend the Life of Your Manicures

Extending the life of our manicure is something that we all strive to do, especially when we do our nails at home! Using a nail primer or a base coat is a step that shouldn’t be skipped as they can help improve the look of nails and help prevent nail lacquer from chipping. This week in the blog, we are going through our favourite nail primer, base coat, and nail treatment products so you can help extend the life of your mani!

Horse Power Nail Rescue Basecoat

The first base coat we recommend is our bestselling Horse Power! This award-winning Nail Rescue Basecoat helps transform, restore, and rescue damaged nails. Formulated with Horsetail Extract, Biotin, Vitamin B, and Calcium, Horse Power helps protect both healthy and brittle nails against future damage as it helps prevent nail breakage.

Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat

Up next on our list of nail primer products is our Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat! This fast-drying basecoat helps prep and prime nails with a protective layer to help fill in nail ridges, prevent nail stains, and help extend the wear time of nail lacquer. Formulated with Horsetail Extract and Hydrolyzed Silk, this nail-loving Priming Basecoat helps strengthen the look of nails while supporting healthy nail growth for nails!

Sheer Wisdom Nail Tinted Moisturizer

If you are looking for a nail primer to help dry, brittle nails, we recommend Sheer Wisdom! This Nail Tinted Moisturizer helps revive, strengthen and prevent breakage as it coats nails with a barely-there neutral tint. Formulated with Revolutionary Micro Smart Active Technology, Sheer Wisdom helps lock in moisture and deliver a healthy dose of hydration to help repair the look of nails over time. Available in five natural-looking shades, you can find the colour that best matches your skin tone to wear on its own or under a Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer for a nail-loving mani.

Mellow the Yellow Nail Brightening Treatment

Last but not least on our list of nail primer and base coat products, we have Mellow the Yellow! This Nail Brightening Treatment helps instantly brighten the look of yellowing nails as it combines the power of Vitamin E and Lemon Fruit Extract to help exfoliate dry, damaged nails. The skin-conditioning formula helps improve the look of yellowing nails, leaving them smoother and brighter looking. Add a basecoat of Mellow the Yellow to any manicure to help repair damage from a harsh nail formula or practice.

**Pro Tip: We love adding a coat of Mellow the Yellow as a top coat on any Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer to help give nails a shimmery glazed donut look!
