What’s your go-to nail polish base coat? I never use a base coat. I’ve tried many, and they all made application more difficult for me and shortened the wear of my polish.
What’s your go-to nail polish remover? I like the ones that come in a jar you can dip your fingers in, no real brand preference at this point.

Top coat: Deborah Lippmann Addicted to Speed-It gets gloopy toward the end, but I have problems with chipping, and this really does help. I like to reapply it the second day after doing my nails and maybe again a day or two later to extend my manicure.

Base: Zoya Anchor or Sally Hansen nail strengthening base coat

Remover: Zoya, but I’m not picky

What’s your go-to nail polish base coat? 1st on is European Secrets Rock Hard followed by step 2; Nail-Aid 1 Minute Gel.

What’s your go-to nail polish remover? Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish remover, I think it’s called. It’s gentle, which my less than youthful nails now need, as I have several that peel and split on me.

Hmmm I haven’t figured out if i’m warm or cool toned, since I wear both cool and warm colors. At this point, doubt I ever will. Maybe i’m more neutral tonned? I’m fair skinned with dark brown hair and eyes.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is where it’s at. I wholeheartedly agree with Seraphine, that stuff is amazing. As far as a base coat and remover, whatever’s on sale. I tried the Sticky base coat before but, it turns my nailbeds that funky yellow color so i’m no longer a fan. I felt it helped my polish adhere better too so i’m disapointed about my yellow nails. Personally, thats a big reason why I bother with a base coat on the nails. It keeps my nails from yellowing amongst a few other things. Just grabbed a Sally Hensen “no light needed” gel polish. You don’t use a base coat. Just 2-3 coats of color, let dry and follow with the top coat. Supposed to last up to 14 days chip free. We shall see I guess. I’m cautiously optimistic!

Top coat- OPI Plumping, Volumizing Top Coat. On my second bottle, I love the effect, it makes every polish look like a gel manicure plus it dries quickly.
