Can You Put A Top Coat Over Color Changing Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

You apply them just like normal nail polish. You can use a base coat, two or three coats of color depending on your opacity preference and a topcoat to extend the life of your polish.

So to all of you who might be worried that a top coat will interfere with Del Sol’s color-changing magic, it’s not a problem at all! You can definitely use your top coat with this polish and still experience the color-changing effect.

Generally 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.

6-12 months Thermochromic nail polishes have a shorter shelf life. Normal nail polishes can last for two years, but the thermal polish will work for 6-12 months if you want the optimal results. Make sure you also store your nail polishes (of any kind!) in a cool, dark space to extend its life.
