Sometimes, we think Base Coat Nail Polish is an extra step. I’m guilty of it. But It makes a big deal of difference for long lasting manicure and nail health overall. It prevents staining, fill in the ridges and make the nail surface smooth for colored nail polish application. We often wonder, which nail polish last longer? Well, there maybe long lasting polishes but just this one step of base coat application will make any nail polish last longer. Here I’m sharing my favorite base coats, which worked for me.

butter LONDON Nail Foundation Priming Base Coat

You can clearly make it out from the name, what this base coat nail polish from butter London does. Terms like “Foundation, Priming” is not there just for a fancy name. This actually works like a foundation and primer for nails. It has slight creme tint which provides light coverage and it is an incredible product to fill in those ridges. The way a face primer minimizes pores, it acts the same for minimizing the ridges on your nails.

Seche Clear Base Coat

Seche Clear Base Coat does an amazing job to keep the polish on for longer period of time. As the name says, It is a clear base coat polish and specifically formulated to prevent yellowness. Added bonus is  “It’s No Formaldehyde & No Toluene” formula. However it doesn’t do much for filling ridges. If your concern is ridge filling, then I would highly recommend butter LONDON Nail Foundation Priming Base Coat.

  1. Thanks for this article! My biggest pet peeve with getting my nails done is having to get them re-done almost every week. I’m not sure if it’s the base the salon uses or if I’m just really careless with my hands lol. Personally, I like the OPI brand but the butter London brand sounds amazing. Will definitely give that one a shot!

    1. Hi Hailey..Some nails polishes have chemicals but it’s in very negligible quantity and below the approved level. Hence, no health concerns. There are chemical free nail polish brands available in the market too!
