Pro Tip Tuesday: Base Coat Tips for the Perfect Mani or Pedi

Base Coat Tips

The Dazzle Dry Difference

Unlike ordinary base coats, Dazzle Dry’s Base Coat has been specially formulated to expand and contract with the natural nail providing protection against breaks, chips, and lifting.

Our proprietary flexible polymers in the Base Coat react to colder temperatures much like you would. They huddle together in an effort to keep warm. When we warm the base coat, we are allowing the polymers to expand.

This process leads to ultimate adhesion with your nail plate.

When Base Coat is warm, it can effectively hug your nails upon application. This makes it stick to the nail surface better and leads to consistent, durable, and beautiful nails for 7 to 14 days.

Use these Base Coat tips for the perfect mani or pedi:

  • Tip 1: Always apply 2 layers of Base Coat. The extra layer of Base Coat allows Lacquer to expand and contract with water absorption helping your mani last longer.
  • Tip 2: Avoid contaminating your Base Coat. Never submerge under water. Allow Base Coat layers to dry completely. Never use Revive in Base Coat.
  • Tip 3: Make sure to cover the entire nail surface. Missing an edge can lead to premature lifting or chipping. If you miss a spot with the first layer of Base Coat, you can always fix it with the second layer.
