Q.

If I’m applying polish over acrylics, do I need to apply base coat before I put polish on?

A.

I always apply a base coat because it prevents staining of the enhancement, and it helps make removing the polish easier. I also feel that applying a base coat before polish gives the finished nail a smoother, more professional look. — Jolene Brodeur is a celebrity manicurist and CND education ambassador.
