When it comes to base coats and top coats I have a bunch to choose from. I like to change my polish often- up to twice a week- but I don’t always have the time with two little ones to chase after lol. When I know I’m not going to have the time and I need my manicure to last at least five days or so I use OPI Top Coat and Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat together. Both are pretty easy to find and are also affordable. The Revlon base coat runs about 5 dollars and the OPI top coat runs about 8 or 9 dollars. I find these two work really well together. I have my hands in water all day long and I don’t wear any gloves while doing dishes or cleaning…although I probably should! I will insert a picture of my nails at the beginning of my last manicure here.
You can see I have some tip wear but nothing major to speak of. I even broke my middle nail and my polish still didn’t chip lol. If you’re looking for an affordable long lasting base/top coat combo for your nails I recommend these two! If you have any suggestions or know of any other base coat/top coat combos that work really well let me know in the comments below! I’d love to hear from you!
