Manicare Nail Treatment Systems

Manicare has positioned weak, chipped and stained nails into the spotlight and launched three new nail treatment systems to ensure your nails are in top shape.  The three Manicare top & base coat products are the Beginning to End Top/Base Coat and Nail Strengthener (A$15.50/12ml), Mirror Shine Top Coat (A$13.50/12ml) and the Base Coat Plus Strengthener (A$13.50/12ml).

A couple of weeks ago the lovely representative for Manicare gave me the opportunity to test-drive the Beginning to End and Base Coat Plus Strengthener.  

Base Coat Plus Strengthener, as the name speaks for itself, is a fast drying base coat for prolong nail polish wear and also protects the nails from yellow staining. Sometimes I steer clear of wearing dark shades of nail polish such as reds and navy as darker shades tend to result in yellow stains to the nails – it’s an awful situation to come to. Base Coat Plus Strengthener is the solution (and an absolute must!) to prevent the nails from staining – so no more fears! 

Beginning to End is a multitasking nail treatment product which is not only great as a top and base coat to improve adhesion of nail polish, but also helps to strengthen the nail thanks to the ‘breakthrough 3 in 1 formula’ which includes essential amino acid derivatives. Beginning to End avoids the use of multiple products for a manicure and it also works a treat to protect the nail bed and ensure the smooth shiny finish of nail polish lasts longer. I’ve been re-applying Beginning to End every 2-3 days and my nails do feel and look healthier and stronger.  

Beginning to End and Base Coat Plus Strengthener are excellent multi-use top and base coats that adds the ‘care factor’ in which most nail products I own do not have. Another great quality I noticed was that these top and base coats DO NOT give a strong offensive chemical scent; I've always disliked using most top and base coats due to the strong scent.  If I were to choose between the two I would opt for the Beginning to End only because it has the added benefit of the 3 in 1 formula.   

Manicare nail formulas do not contain formaldehyde and toluene.

Do you use top and base coats to protect your nails?
