Seeing your nails with a fresh, colourful coat of nail polish sure is satisfying but that's until you open your handbag or adjust your sandals and a bit chips right off. Then it's heartbreak. Manicures at home never seem to match the finish of those at a salon and skipping the base coat is one of the reasons why. A base nail polish before your coloured coat helps it adhere to the nail bed, prevents chipping and primes the surface for a smooth finish. For your next DIY manicure, try these 8 base nail polish coats.
