For a nourishing and long-lasting manicure this base coat is a must! With just one layer, the MANIKO base coat creates an even nail surface for a flawless application of your nail polish strips. It also extends the durability of your manicure. Ceratin and Vitamin E prevent loss of moisture during the application of the nail polish strips, while biotin and calcium rebuild and strengthen the nail plate. The base coat is perfect for treating weak, brittle nails and is especially recommended when changing from gel to natural nails. Caution: The product is highly inflammable! Keep away from open flames, surfaces and sources of ignition. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. For external use only!

Step 1: Cleaning
Clean your nails with nail polish remover or an alcohol pad for a clean, grease-free nail surface.
Step 2: Applying Base Coat
After the pre-treatment of your nails, apply a layer of our nourishing Base Coat, which dries in just a few seconds.

If your nails are very brittle or stressed by gel, we recommend applying two thin layers of our Base Coat. In this way the nail is treated with important nutrients while wearing our nail polish strips.

Let the layers dry well before applying your nail polish strips!
Step 3: Choose size
Choose from 8 different sizes of strips to ensure the best fit to your nail. The numbers in the middle work as a size indication and help you to find the right nail polish strip quickly and easily.

If you are unsure between two sizes, choose the smaller size for natural nails. With gel or acrylic nails, you should choose the larger size because of the nail curvature.

Tip: If you can't find the right size, you can also cut each nail strip individually with nail scissors.
Step 4: Apply Nail Strip
Remove the transparent protective film and peel the nail polish strip from it's backing. Place the nail polish strip on your nail and press it down from the middle towards the tio of the nail.
Step 5: Fold excess
Fold the excess nail strip under your nail tip so that the nail edge is completely covered with nail polish. Be careful not to pull the nail polish strip over the tip of the nail too strongly. This is the best way to ensure clean nail edges.
Step 6: File
Carefully file off the folded end horizontally underneath the tip of your nail with the MANIKO glass nail file.

Avoid filing in different directions in order not to damage the nail polish strip. Also avoid filing the nail polish strip vertically, as the up and down motion can cause file dust to get under the nail polish strip.
Step 7: Seal
Finish your manicure by sealing it with a thin layer of the MANIKO Top Coat. Avoid applying two or more layers of our Top Coat in a row! Don't forget to additionally seal the nail edge to avoid tip wear.
REMOVAL
Do not pull the nail polish strips off your nails. If your nails are thin, heavily stressed or brittle, the nail plate can be strained and weakened. Our nail polish strips can be removed easily and gently with our acetone-free nail polish remover. Its special formula is effective in removing nail polish without drying out the nail due to ingredients such as apricot kernel oil, glycerin and aloe vera.
INGREDIENTS WHAT DOES THE INGREDIENT DO?
Ethyl Acetates This is a harmless, colorless solvent, which improves the smell of a product by its slightly sweet fragrance.
Butyl Acetate This substance is a clear, colorless solvent with a slightly fruity smell. In cosmetics, butyl acetate has a masking effect on unpleasant inherent scents. As this substance is also found in apple juice, it is completely harmless.
Isopropyl Alcohol To ensure that the base coat keeps its liquid consistency for a long time and spreads well on your nail, we have added the harmless ingredient Isopropyl Alcohol.
Nitrocellulose This material ensures that a film is formed on your nail during application, protecting it from external influences.
Phthalic anhydride/Trimellitic anhydride/Glycols copolyme This ingredient is a film binder, which is responsible for the optimal sealing and a long durability of the nail polish strips. This substance is of concern if it is absorbed through the skin. Therefore, you should take care when applying the base coat not to bring it into contact with torn or open skin areas. We are already looking for an alternative harmless ingredient.
Acetyl Tributyl Citrate Due to its sensitive, oily qualities this substance is often used in nail care products. As well as in our base coat, which prevents your nails from drying out.
Adipic Acid/ Fumaric Acid/ Phthalic Alkyd Resin This substance complex regulates the PH value of your nails and prevents them from becoming brittle and chapped while wearing our nail polish strips.
Calcium Pantothenate Thanks to the calcium, also known as vitamin B, contained in our base coat, the growth of your nails is stimulated and strengthens the nail plate from the root.
Biotin This vitamin works wonders for dry, brittle nails. Applied to the nail through our base coat, the biotin penetrates through the nail root and nail plate. Thus, your nails become resistant and strong.
Vitamin E Acetate Vitamin E increases the water-binding capacity of the nail to allow brittle, hard nails to grow out resiliently and stably.
CI:14720 This is a harmless dye that gives our base coat its slightly pink coloring.
Keratin This ingredient ensures good nail hydration for brittle nails and strengthens the nail directly at the root.
