Question of the Week: Is base coat an essential step for you when wearing nail polish? If so, what are some of your favorites?
Jess’ Answer : I have to admit, I don’t use a base coat on the regular. If I’m in the middle of a huge swatch fest where I know I’m taking the polish off immediately, I won’t take the extra step to apply one. The ONLY rare time that I will put one on while swatching, is if I’m wearing blues or teals. These shades tend to stain your nails in a matter of seconds. However, if I am doing a mani that I plan on keeping on for awhile I will absolutely use one! Some of my top picks are :
EauMG – Your Halloween costume isn’t complete until you’re wearing the perfect perfume “match”! Need some guidance? Here’s EauMG’s perfume picks for popular Halloween costumes.
