American Classics Gelous Nail Gel After using this I actually noticed that my nails are harder and don't break as fast as they normally do. I never used to use a base coat and I noticed that it does help with the polish staying power. Also gives a smooth overall finish. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a great base coat.
currently on sale for $4.99 at Sally Beauty online
Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat Don't ask me to pronounce this, I don't speak a lick of French! =] But I can tell you that this is the best top coat I own. It literally drives in SECONDS. I am amazed every time I put it on and I love it because I am always on the go. I always always always used to smudge my polish before I found this and I can honestly say those days are long gone.
You can buy this at Sally Beauty Supply for $6.49 and they are currently having a sale this week where you can get the base coat for FREE (here is the LINK to the flyer ..turn to PAGE 4)
keep smiling =]
