What is a top coat used for?
Do you want to extend the wear of your manicure? Protect it from impacts, cracks and early chipping? So don’t forget your Top Coat! Impossible to ignore this finishing coat which, in addition to providing protection, can also allow you to vary your styles. The nail expert Maryton will tell you everything…
The top coat, literally translated “finishing coat”, is a varnish, generally transparent, which is applied to the nails after applying your color. This finishing varnish provides a protective layer to your manicure and gives it greater resistance.
Just as applying a base coat is important to start your manicure and protect your nails, applying a top coat is essential to protect it from impacts and early chipping.
A successful manicure includes 4 essential steps:
Step 1: Prepare your nails well and degrease them with a mild nail polish remover to facilitate application and optimize hold.
Step 2: Apply 1 thin layer of base coat to protect the nail surface and facilitate adhesion of the polish.
Step 3: Apply 2 thin coats of color to optimize the hold and opacity of the varnish.
Step 4: Apply 1 coat of Top Coat to seal in the color and protect your manicure while giving it the desired aesthetic finish.
