What is the best base coat and top coat to use with Chanel Le Vernis

  1. Hello,

    I am looking at purchasing a base coat and top coat to help make my Chanel mani and pedi last.

    Those of you who use Chanel, what base/top coat do you use. Are there any pros and cons about the ones you use?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. i use OPI.

    i change nail polish, both fingers and toes, every two weeks.

    i see very little wear.

    i use OPI with every polish except china glaze. i use CG top coat for those.
  3. Whoa, 2 weeks?! I think I might need to try OPI base/top coat then...
  4. OPI base and top coat used to make my manicures last for 2 weeks as well, but recently I've noticed tip wear after 2-3 days! Not sure if it's the formula or my nails have changed... :sad:

    I then switched to Seche Base and Vite and it's brilliant! I don't even have to do Chip Skip/Prep!
  5. I use OPI Natural Nail basecoat and Seche Vite or Dior topcoat, makes my mani's last 7 days
  6. I use NailTek Foundation II & Seche Vite top coat.

    If you tend to have shiny / oily natural nail beds, it helps to remove the natural surface oils on the nail plate by wiping the nail with rubbing alcohol (& waiting for it to dry) before applying your basecoat. You can also use a product like OPI Bond Aid, but that is mostly rubbing alcohol.
  7. I use CND Stickey and Seche Vite.
  8. I've found that SV often turn my lighter colored Chanel polishes yellow.

    I looove the Dior TC, but I switch different basecoats.
