My recent post about Sally Hansen ‘Salon’ nail polish got me thinking about mastering painting my nails on my own. And I’ve just added a new tool to my DIY manicure arsenal!
Orly Top 2 Bottom Basecoat and Topcoat is amazing. The first coat, which you apply before using color, provides a solid base that allows you to apply a smooth, even coat of color. After your color has dried, apply a second coat of Top 2 Bottom. It provides a transparent seal that prevents chipping, helping your manicure last longer.
I was amazed at what a neat job I was able to do. After a little help from a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover, which I used to clean up any excess polish from the cuticles, I felt like I may never need to go for a professional manicure again!
