Can You Put Color Street On Top Of A Base Coat?

Written by Tara

The short answer is yes to all! If you’re also addicted to Color Street nail polish strips (like I am) then you’ll be happy to know it’s ok to use nail strengthener underneath your nail strips. In other words, you can apply Color Street over the nail strengthener.

In fact if your nails are really brittle, I think it’s a good idea. I do it all the time. You could also apply the strips over a base coat but I don’t see any need for it. Color Street nail polish strips are base, color, and top coat all in one strip, so no need for a base coat.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Why are my color Street nails cracking on my nails?

Rest assured this is not a problem with the nail polish strips themselves or your Color Street application. Cracking is a normal effect from your nails expanding and contracting. Nails are incredibly absorbent and take in water causing them to swell or expand. However, when they dry the nail will contract and shrink.

Does Color street damage your nails?

No, color street nail polish strips won’t ruin your nails. Color street stickers are made from 100% nail polish. The risk is pretty much the same as painting your nails with regular nail polish. That being said, some people have found that their nails are weaker and their cuticles are dry after using color street.

How long will color Street nails last?

Color Street nail strips are real polish in a dry strip form, with a base coat, color coat and top coat in every strip. They are supposed to last about 10 days without chipping.

Can you put clear nail polish on top of color Street nails?

The nail polish strips are 100% real polish. They contain base coat, color and top coat all in one strip. You don’t need other nail products when using Color Street, but it won’t affect the product if you want to use a clear coat on top or a nail strengthener underneath.

Is color street better than Jamberry?

They have a lot of great colors, just not as many choices as Jamberry. Designs/colors are often out of stock with Color Street, but they do seem to restock them pretty often. Jamberry has many more options in colors and designs, though not nearly as many glitter options.
