Smoothing Base

Regular price $12.00
Regular price $12.00 Sale price $12.00
Smooth out uneven, dented or ridged nails with this nourishing ridge-filler base coat. Apply one coat as your base and your manicure will appear more smooth and even. Try wearing Smoothing Base alone for a conditioned nail look — like a sheer foundation for your nails!
    • 1. For best results, clean nails thoroughly of natural oils to ensure maximum base coat and nail polish adhesion. Make sure to use acetone-based nail polish remover or a nail dehydrating solution to properly prep the nail plate.
    • 2. Apply 1 to 2 coats of Smoothing Base on clean, dry nails. Wrap under the tips of your nails to help prevent tip wear.
    • 3. Allow to dry to the touch before applying your favourite nail polish. Or, wear 2 coats alone for a conditioned natural look!
    • 4. Don’t forget to seal it all in with a nice thick coat of Glossy Taco for extended wear!

Just what I needed!

I love this! Not just as a base coat to go under other polishes! When I’m in a rush and can’t do a full mani before work but still want my nails protected and not *****, I go straight to this and a glossy taco! It’s amazing and I love using just this and one of the sparkly tacos, too! It’s a nail saver! Quality Holo Taco product as always!

Incredible. I use 2 coats and my nails look like they were done in the salon. Will use every single time now

I love this ridge-filling base (and it has no talc)!

I use 1 coat when my nails aren't peeling too bad or when my ridges aren't the worst (I have nail psoriasis) or if I'm using a thermal polish, or have a strengthening base underneath. I use 2 coats when my nails are awful, or I got anxious and unconsciously peeled or picked my polish off, or if I am using a sheer color and want less of a VNL.

Super Smoooooth

The base coat I needed! I already love the long lasting base and thought this addition would be great -- I was right! My nails got damaged from getting SNS nails for the first time in May, and I've been waiting for this dent to grow out :( This base has made it almost "disappear" on my left hand! Once I perfect painting with my left hand, I'm sure my right hand will look the same.
