The need for a base coat and top coat: Do they really work?

Are base and top coats really necessary? Do they really work? Almost every woman has these questions in mind. Well, the answers lie in studying their benefits. 

Once we know about the benefits, it would be easy to decide their significance. So, here we go:

Benefits of Base Coat 

A base coat is an inner coat applied to the nail during the manicure. Besides binding the nail polish firmly to your nail, it serves a lot more.

Not only does it strengthen your nail polish bonding, but also helps in many things. Here are some of the reasons for applying the base coat. 

  • Prevention of peeling and chipping 

During a manicure, there is a possibility of nail polish not adhering properly. In this case, consequences like peeling and chipping are possible. 

However, with the application of the base coat, these changes can be reduced. They serve as adhering agents just like glue or double-sided tape. 

  • No staining of nails 

Some nail polishes have an unwanted tendency to stain nails. It is due to the presence of pigments and dyes. The most wanted criminal, in this case, is the bright red nail polish. 

Moreover, this can cause a yellow tinge on your nails. The layering of the base coat prevents the pigments from reaching your nail. 

  • Flexibility in nail polishes 

Too hard nail polish can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. The plasticizers in the base coat incorporate softness. 

In simple words, this makes the coating flexible enough. The best thing is the ability to bend nails without letting the nail polish chip or crack.. You can also use this for naturally brittle nails. 

  • Covering the cracks and signs of damage 

One of the best advantages of a base coat is to cover any signs that look awkward. Any such mark or bumps on your nails that would make your nail polish look uneven will be flattened out with a base coat.

Thus, it is equally important to have a base coat to hide any such signs. This is possible by filling the ridges to even out the surface and give it a smooth texture and feel.

Benefits of a Top Coat 

The above-mentioned lines are somewhat explanatory of how a base coat can be useful. As the second question was about the top coat, here are some reasons for that. 

Go through the reasons to use the top coat in addition to the base coat. 

  • Protection against damage and breaking 

Your nails are subject to high chances of breaking. This may be due to a number of tasks involving the usage of nails.

 That's why a top coat is necessary. It has the ability to strengthen the core of nails by giving them extra protection 

  • Refraining the contact between water and your nails 

The pace of peeling of nail polish increases with water exposure. A top coat plays an important role in this case. 

It acts as a barrier between excess moisture content and your nails. For better results, you can use gloves to decrease the speeding up of nail polish chipping away..

  • Acting as a shield against harmful UV rays 

Top coats also protect nails against harmful UV radiations. The action of decomposition can be due to the presence of dyes and pigments. 

Consequently, it will also protect your nail color from fading. This function of a top coat is effective in UV ray protection.
