How to choose the most suitable nail base coat in 5 easy steps

Would you add salt to coffee to sweeten it? If the answer that comes to your mind is “of course not”, let me tell you that the same is true for nail bases.


The answer is just as simple: each type of nail requires a different base coat according to its needs and, as we already told you in this article, it is a mistake to always apply the same base coat on all your manicures.

Our hands are constantly exposed to external factors such as cold, rain, and now more than ever to disinfectant gels and other chemicals that deteriorate the appearance and health of our nails.

Of course, stress and diet also have an influence on the quality of our nails, as well as permanent nail polish and nail extensions do not contribute much to their care.

The result? Soft, brittle, dull or flaking nails. This results in an enamel that lifts or cracks easily.

So what can you do to avoid making a mistake when choosing the right nail base coat?

Read on and strengthen your nails by following a few simple steps! I’ll tell you about it below.

  1. Pay attention to the color of the nail

Do you notice yellowish spots? Then the garlic and lemon in the strengthening treatment base are your great allies, because this nail base with vitamins combines them to perfection.

And don’t worry! It does not smell of garlic or lemon, but it does contain their depigmenting, antibacterial and disinfectant active ingredients.

What is the purpose of the nail strengthener base coat? What other effects do they have on our nails? These two natural antibiotics combined act as a great hardener: garlic brightens and inhibits the negative effects of free radicals, while lemon acts as an antioxidant and aids in collagen production.

But that’s not all! As if that were not enough, this nail care base coat for yellowish nails is vitaminized with keratin (protein responsible for giving structure and hardness), vitamin E (antioxidant, to prevent nail deterioration) and castor oil (to soften cuticles and stimulate nail growth).

It is compatible with any traditional enamel and can be applied without enamel! So now you know, do not hesitate and strengthen your nails easily and quickly.

  1. STOP flaking and/or stretch marks!

As I told you above, keratin is formed in layers and its mission is to act as a strengthener and give structure to the nails.

And what happens when the levels of this protein drop in our organism? We notice its effect not only on our nails, but also on our skin, hair, and even our teeth.

So let me introduce you to what will be your great allies in these cases: keratin (of course, great nail hardener), vitamin E, castor oil and two star components: fortifyer and biotin.

Forti… what? Fortifyer! It is a novel formula obtained from a reinforcing fiber base for use on the natural nail.

And why is it so important?

Because thanks to this cosmetic hardener ingredient, a perfect adhesion of the nail polish to the nail is achieved, increasing its resistance to scratches.

For its part, the Biotin (also known as vitamin B7) is another great ally in the fight against peeling and splitting nailsThanks to its metabolizing and strengthening properties, it helps the beginning of the nail (the whitest part) to improve and grow stronger and also helps the nails to become thicker again.

So now you know, if your nails are flaking and/or cracking what you need is Masnails Anti-Scaling Treatment Base, a nail base with vitamins that you can find here.

  1. What is the nail surface like?
