It's surprising, the difference in varnish hardness.
I have started using a base layer when doing my nails. Usually I spend half hour picking the existing polish off, then use remover, wash then reapply.
But with the base layer, they are more shiny and the varnish is more harder, I couldn't even scrape the varnish off so with in 10 minutes, the remover came out.
Yeah, ok, so washed, shaped, smoothed, buffed then polished before the base coat is applied, before the varnish. I'm happy with the result ;-) once it has stopped smelling of solvent, ill put another coat on before visiting the wife's auntie tomorrow.
