I have used other base coats and top coats in the past and i still intend on getting more but these are the ones I am using currently in my Nail Studio.

Orly Bonder

Orly’s rubberized formula grips the polish to the nail surface for lasting adhesion for up to two weeks or more.

Orly Top coat

I find that this top coat doesn’t make my designs smear, it also makes the polish last long and stay in place and of course it dries fast.

O.P.I Base coat

I don’t use this as often as the Orly top coat just because I don’t want to use both at the same time but when I do my clients don’t have complains so it does the job.

O.P.I Top coat

The shining finish is definitely one of the things I love most about this top coat.



Revlon No chip Top coat

I normally use this for myself not my client, it works for me as it keeps my toe polish for as long as I want but I find that sometimes it drags my polish and sometimes it stains after some time. This might be due to some other factors but I think you get the best result when the polish dries well before adding the top coat and also sometimes I do two coats.

Nail Savvy speed demon

I hardly use this just because my polishes and top coats are quick dry and I still use the electric drier while working, I mostly use it when my client are in a hurry, but it’s always good to have one of these drying agents. I think almost every polish brand has a quick drying drop. depending on your preference.
