How often do you apply a top and base to your nails before and after applying your polish? If you’re anything like me, you get too excited for the pretty polish colour to even bother with a base coat and then you’re in too much of a hurry to wait for a top coat to dry. I know that any good mani starts and ends with a solid base and top coat and is essential in keeping your nails looking shiny, fresh and new and thanks to Nicole by OPI New Top Coats And Treatments For 2014 your nails will look perfect for longer. These 4 new products will be essential for at-home manicures and is developed and inspired by OPI’s in-salon favourite and features a new Oil to Go, 3-in-1 Base Top Coat & Strengthener, Quick Dry Top Coat and Matte Top Coat.
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director recommends using Oil to Go daily for healthy nails and using top coats to maintain perfectly painted fingers and toes. “Nicole fans can achieve high quality results without breaking the bank!”
Nicole by OPI Quick Dry Top Coat has a nice, medium consistency that glides onto the nail smoothly and evenly with only 2 to 3 strokes. It instantly dries the nail polish in record time, with no smudging or dents in as little as 5 minutes. Unlike other top coats that only dry the top layer of polish, this top coat seems to dry all the way down to the base coat making polish last longer. It gives a shiny and jelly-like finish and doesn’t smudge or streak your nail polish colour or nail art designs, even if working with multiple shades at a time. It helps protect the nails from chipping and fading for longer, I now get a solid 4 days before I see any wear and tear on the nails.
Give your cuticles the constant TLC they deserve with Nicole by OPI Oil to Go. It comes in a convenient, white tiny squeezable tube with hot pink cap, that’s leak-proof and features a brush applicator for easy application on the go, perfect for your purse.
