For a nourishing and long-lasting manicure this base coat is a must! With just one layer, the MANIKO base coat creates an even nail surface for a flawless application of your nail polish strips. It also extends the durability of your manicure. Ceratin and Vitamin E prevent loss of moisture during the application of the nail polish strips, while biotin and calcium rebuild and strengthen the nail plate. The base coat is perfect for treating weak, brittle nails and is especially recommended when changing from gel to natural nails. Caution: The product is highly inflammable! Keep away from open flames, surfaces and sources of ignition. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. For external use only!
If your nails are very brittle or stressed by gel, we recommend applying two thin layers of our Base Coat. In this way the nail is treated with important nutrients while wearing our nail polish strips.
Let the layers dry well before applying your nail polish strips!
If you are unsure between two sizes, choose the smaller size for natural nails. With gel or acrylic nails, you should choose the larger size because of the nail curvature.
Tip: If you can't find the right size, you can also cut each nail strip individually with nail scissors.
Avoid filing in different directions in order not to damage the nail polish strip. Also avoid filing the nail polish strip vertically, as the up and down motion can cause file dust to get under the nail polish strip.
|INGREDIENTS||WHAT DOES THE INGREDIENT DO?|
|Ethyl Acetates||This is a harmless, colorless solvent, which improves the smell of a product by its slightly sweet fragrance.|
|Butyl Acetate||This substance is a clear, colorless solvent with a slightly fruity smell. In cosmetics, butyl acetate has a masking effect on unpleasant inherent scents. As this substance is also found in apple juice, it is completely harmless.|
|Isopropyl Alcohol||To ensure that the Base Coat keeps its liquid consistency for a long time and spreads well on your nail, we have added the harmless ingredient Isopropyl Alcohol.|
|Nitrocellulose||This material ensures that a film is formed on your nail during application, protecting it from external influences.|
|Phthalic anhydride/ Trimellitic anhydride/ Glycols copolyme||This ingredient is a film binder, which is responsible for the optimal sealing and a long durability of the Nail Polish Strips. This substance is of concern if it is absorbed through the skin. Therefore, you should take care when applying the Base Coat not to bring it into contact with torn or open skin areas. We are already looking for an alternative harmless ingredient.|
|Acetyl Tributyl Citrate||Due to its sensitive, oily qualities this substance is often used in nail care products. As well as in our Base Coat, which prevents your nails from drying out.|
|Adipic Acid/ Fumaric Acid/ Phthalic Alkyd Resin||This substance complex regulates the PH value of your nails and prevents them from becoming brittle and chapped while wearing our Nail Polish Strips.|
|Calcium Pantothenate||Thanks to the calcium, also known as vitamin B, contained in our Base Coat, the growth of your nails is stimulated and strengthens the nail plate from the root.|
|Biotin||This vitamin works wonders for dry, brittle nails. Applied to the nail through our Base Coat, the biotin penetrates through the nail root and nail plate. Thus, your nails become resistant and strong.|
|Vitamin E Acetate||Vitamin E increases the water-binding capacity of the nail to allow brittle, hard nails to grow out resiliently and stably.|
|CI:14720||This is a harmless dye that gives our Base Coat its slightly pink coloring.|
|Keratin||This ingredient ensures good nail hydration for brittle nails and strengthens the nail directly at the root.|
