I have used other base coats and top coats in the past and i still intend on getting more but these are the ones I am using currently in my Nail Studio.
Orly’s rubberized formula grips the polish to the nail surface for lasting adhesion for up to two weeks or more.
Orly Top coat
I find that this top coat doesn’t make my designs smear, it also makes the polish last long and stay in place and of course it dries fast.
O.P.I Base coat
I don’t use this as often as the Orly top coat just because I don’t want to use both at the same time but when I do my clients don’t have complains so it does the job.
O.P.I Top coat
The shining finish is definitely one of the things I love most about this top coat.
Revlon No chip Top coat
I normally use this for myself not my client, it works for me as it keeps my toe polish for as long as I want but I find that sometimes it drags my polish and sometimes it stains after some time. This might be due to some other factors but I think you get the best result when the polish dries well before adding the top coat and also sometimes I do two coats.
Nail Savvy speed demon
I hardly use this just because my polishes and top coats are quick dry and I still use the electric drier while working, I mostly use it when my client are in a hurry, but it’s always good to have one of these drying agents. I think almost every polish brand has a quick drying drop. depending on your preference.
