A great manicure needs a top coat to keep it looking perfect, shiny and chip-free for as long as possible. And from budget to wallet-busting, there’s one that will do the job for you.
For a long-lasting option, try Maybelline Dr Rescue Gel Effect Top Coat. It has a slightly thicker consistency than most, which instantly plumps up and glosses over a base colour. Nails should stay chip-proof for about five days, which ain’t at all bad!
A multi-tasking hero is available in the form of Rimmel Nail Nurse Base & Top Coat. This hard-working two-in-one works as a base, as well as a top coat, to strengthen and hydrate nails. As a top coat, it will lock in your varnish underneath and give it a healthy shine. Nails may also feel noticeably stronger after removing the colour. Result.
And finally, for a quick fix there’s Revlon® Quick Dry Top Coat. This is perfect for manis in a hurry. A silky top coat, it dries and becomes smudge-proof within a minute – as promised! It instantly perks up your polish colour underneath to give it a fresh shine, and it lasts.
