What is a top coat used for?

Do you want to extend the wear of your manicure? Protect it from impacts, cracks and early chipping? So don’t forget your Top Coat! Impossible to ignore this finishing coat which, in addition to providing protection, can also allow you to vary your styles. the nail supplies expert Maryton will tell you everything…

The top coat, literally translated “finishing coat”, is a varnish, generally transparent, which is applied to the nails after applying your color. This finishing varnish provides a protective layer to your manicure and gives it greater resistance.

But that’s not all !

Just as applying a base coat is important to start your manicure and protect your nails, applying a top coat is essential to protect it from impacts and early chipping.

A successful manicure includes 4 essential steps:

Step 1: Prepare your nails well and degrease them with a mild nail polish remover to facilitate application and optimize hold.

Step 2: Apply 1 thin layer of base coat to protect the nail surface and facilitate adhesion of the polish.

Step 3: Apply 2 thin coats of color to optimize the hold and opacity of the varnish.

Step 4: Apply 1 coat of Top Coat to seal in the color and protect your manicure while giving it the desired aesthetic finish.

Sublimated appearance & Resistance over time

Different types of Top Coat exist to give your manicure a particular finishing effect: shiny effect, matte effect, etc. Applying a top coat can therefore ideally transform the appearance of your nail polish. It will be up to you to choose your style.

In terms of strength and durability, a quality top coat can also help protect your nail polish by preventing it from chipping or tarnishing too quickly.

Finally, a Top Coat can also help your manicure dry more quickly. Drying times vary depending on the products used.

Now that you know why it’s so important, bring your manicure supplies and you will have endless fun!
