How important is a base coat?

Always Use a Base Coat

The base coat provides a surface for the nail color to adhere to. It provides a thicker base of polish, and more protection for the nail, and it helps to keep the nail from becoming stained by the color of the polish. The sandwiching technique of base coat, color, and topcoat increases the time your manicure will last.
