While yellow nails might potentially indicate a health issue, they can also be a by-product of nail polish. Nails can become stained after long time exposure to darker colored nail polish. Since there is no protective layer between the nail plate and the polish, the dye seeps through the layers and stains them. A base coat acts as that barrier in between the two by preventing staining.
But the benefits of a base coat dont stop there. Using a base coat will significantly increase the length of your manicure. Think of it as a double sided tape that holds the nail and the polish together. It is a crucial step in any manicure and one that should not be skipped.
Maxus Nails base coat has strengthening properties that help to strengthen the nail plate and prevent it from chipping and breaking. The amino acids bond the nail layers together to generate a stronger nail plate resistant to breakage.
Many clients experience minimal fungal symptoms especially on their feet. It is important to ensure that your nail technician properly disinfects the foot baths in between clients or uses foot basin liners. Maxus Nails base coat is enriched with Tea Tree Oil for added antiseptic and fungal benefits.
Last and not least – make sure to remove natural oils from the nail plate prior to applying. This is done by simply wiping the nail with acetone or antiseptic (anything that’s drying). Skipping this step might mean losing an extra day of your manicure!
