Can You Put Nail Polish Over Strengthener?

Written by Tara

Can you use nail hardener under gel polish? Yes! This is our favourite way to use Hard Gel. Simply apply your Base Coat, then 1-2 coats of Hard Gel.

Nail Envy works best to strengthen nails when it is used as a base coat in contact with the natural nail. However, it can also be used as a top coat over nail polish. A number of factors can affect the condition and treatment of nails, such as existing medical conditions, medications, or allergies.

Generally Do you put nail strengthener on before Polish? Properly prep your natural nail to ensure Nail Lacquer adhesion. Start by applying one coat of OPI Natural Nail Strengthener in place of your regular base coat nail polish. Shake nail polish shade of choice before application to properly mix pigment to help avoid streakiness.
