When using nail polish I prefer to start with a base: it makes the colour lasts longer and it prevents nails from getting stained when using dark colours. I am very careful when choosing nail polishes and I avoid products that contain formaldehyde, phthalates, toluene and other nasties.
There is no such thing as a natural and organic base or nail polish! But there is the possibility to get products that are less invasive and potentially toxic. I bought the Zoya Anchor Base Coat last year and it has served me very well.
PERFORMANCE: it is specifically a base and not a top coat. It goes on transparent and does not interfere with the colour of the nail polish. I like to apply one layer, then let it dry and apply another one to get a solid base for the nail polish.
It does help the nail polish to last longer (at the moment I am using Kure Bazaar in Amore) and the nails do not get stained or yellow. I tried to use it by itself as a transparent nail polish but it chips as it is not what it is made for.
Overall it does the job and I am happy with Zoya Anchor Base Coat!
INGREDIENTS: Zoya Nail Polishes (Lacquers) are vegan, free of toxic Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP.
SCENT: the typical nail polish one. Pungent!
HOW TO USE IT: apply one or two layers on clean and dry nails. Let it dry and proceed with the application of the nail polish.
Bind color to nail with Zoya Anchor Basecoat. Polish adheres to nail by forming a bond between the nail plate and polish, preventing peeling and chipping. As an added bonus, complex protein chains strengthen nails. Zoya Anchor base coast is a highly durable yet flexible base coat that grips your nail and holds nail polish in place for maximum wear.
