First I did some swatches of some base coats to see if there was any noticeable differences once polish was applied. The base coats used were as follows.
- Finger Paint base coat
- Seche clear base coat
- OPI start to finish base and topcoat
- Tough Coat base and top coat
|Base coats with two coats of Orly Passion Fruit|
When reviewing the following topcoats I wanted to be sure that all of them were tested in the same matter. I first applied two coats of Orly in Passion Fruit, then waited five minutes. I then applied dots of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Brisk Blue and waited another two minutes until a top coat was applied. I did this for all of the swatches.
