Skin care, despite the recent popularity of multi-tasking BB and CC creams which claim to do everything, is still pretty specialized. It’s not hard to end up with an eight-step skin care routine these days. And now the beauty industry is applying that same personalized approach to nail care.
Instead of just a generic base coat and top coat (or those base/top combos that were popular for a while) you can now choose nail treatments based on your unique nail needs. The descriptions of these products even read like your favorite skin potions–phrases like “anti-aging” and “color correcting” are thrown around pretty liberally. Powerhouse brands like Essie and Deborah Lippmann are leading the charge, and there are dozens of offerings.
From nail cleanser prep coats (that’s the step that comes before the base coat) to new top coat forumulations, click through for every conceivable type of potion you never knew you needed on your nails.
