Can You Mix Different Brands Of Nail Polish Together?

Written by Tara

Choose the two shades of nail polish you wish to mix. Mixing only two polish colors is recommended, because mixing more than two colors can make the mixture appear muddy. Normally, using nail polishes with the same base type (glitter, sheer, opaque, matte, etc.) makes for an overall better polish mixture.

Yes, you can technically mix nail products from different brands. It’s highly unlikely that mixing and matching product from different nail brands will have any explosive effects.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Can you mix regular nail polish?

Fortunately, if you’re careful and patient, you can! For a simple combined manicure, apply your regular polish and then add a gel topcoat once it’s dry. For a little extra durability, make a gelly sandwich by layering regular polish between 2 gel coats.

Can you mix gel nail polishes?

When working with gel polishes, while mixing brands can look good, I would always recommend sticking to one system or brand for longer lasting and more durable nails. While brands use a similar formula to each other, just like liquid & powder acrylic there will always be small differences.

Are base coat and top coat the same?

Base coats are usually thicker and stickier, which helps the nail polish adhere better. They contain more resins to give the nail added strength. Topcoats are thinner and contain more ingredients that create a durable surface on the nail.

Jin Soon, a NYC-based manicurist, recommends up to three coats of nail polish for full color coverage and a smooth, finished look. If you apply more than three coats in one sitting, the application will be prone to clumping off in one piece, almost like a shell she says.

Do you shake nail polish?

Nail artist Simcha Whitehill told Allure that shaking your nail polish bottle can lead to chipping. Shaking the bottle creates tiny pockets of air. These air bubbles can sometimes pop, leaving holes in your manicure. Whitehill suggests rolling the nail polish bottle between your hands instead.

How do you thin out nail polish?

What happens if you put gel top coat on regular nail polish?

In short, you should not apply a gel top coat to your regular nail polish since regular nail polish has a long drying time and gel polish will trap moisture under the top coat. We recommend that you stick with a regular base coat and top coat when painting your nails with regular nail lacquer.
