Formula X Prime Base Coat, Mavala Mavadry, Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat
The Fantastic Finds series features products that are meant to help prevent, or fight, those little beauty annoyances that sooner or later occur to most of us. You know, like, pesky zits, cracked lips, sun spots, straw-like hair, chipped nail polish… The list is endless.
What’s even more annoying than these annoyances themselves is the fact that the chances of them occurring are usually directly proportional to the importance of what we have planned for the day.
It’s an unwritten cosmic law.
But recently, I’ve found three products so effective they defy the cosmic laws and universal order of things, and today I’m here to share them with you.
Mavala Mavadry Top Coat (£10 on Look Fantastic)
You know that cheesy saying that goes something like: “A woman is only helpless while she’s waiting for her nail polish to dry”? Well, if you want to reduce your helplessness to the bare minimum, you need the Mavala Mavadry top coat in your life.
3-4 minutes and you’ll be good to go conquer the world!
Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat ($3.99 on Ulta)
If you don’t mind waiting a little longer for your nail polish to dry (about 15 minutes in total), then it’s the Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat you should check out. It’s cheap as chips and makes your manicure last SO. MUCH. LONGER.
Seriously, if you wear nail polish, you need this, like, yesterday.
Formula X Prime Base Coat ($10.50 on Sephora)
I’ve always relied on top coats to extend the longevity of my nail polish, but I’ve recently realized that the Formula X Prime Base Coat lends a very welcome hand in that department, too, by creating the perfect sticky base for your polish to adhere to.
Pair it with the Essence top coat and you’ll get an everlasting manicure.
Well, almost. 😉
