Extend the life of your manicure with our gel base coats and gel top coats here at Nail Polish Direct. A gel base coat provides a smooth, protective coat for your gel nail polish shade, creates a defensive layer between your nail and the pigment of your chosen nail polish and reduces the chances of nail staining. The darker the colour, the more important it is to use a gel base coat. Finishing your manicure with a top coat prevents chipping and gives the polish a stunning long-lasting shine. A gel top coat seals your manicure, meaning you can enjoy your attractive nails for longer. Explore our full collection of gel polish here at Nail Polish Direct, where you’ll find high-quality gel polishes from renowned brands such as Essie Professional and Gelish.
