What is this?
If you want your manicure to last, then the most important step you can take to optimise your nail varnish for a clean and lasting manicure is to use a top coat!
Whether it is for a French manicure or a traditional manicure, it’s up to you to choose the Top coat that you need... glitter sparkly or traditionally clear!
Zao have 2 topcoats on offer, both offer excellent hold, are quick drying and provide a super-glossy shine to your finished nails. The flat & wide nail brush provided makes the application all the easier, allowing perfect placement of the varnish across the whole nail.
Glitter top coat 665 : If you are looking to glam up your manicure or nail polish, the glitter top coat is for you! The very fine glitter boosts the brightness and depth of the colour underneath by reflecting light. It can also be worn alone or on top of transparent bases for a discreet and bright manicure.
Inspired by plants, its vegan and Bio-sourced formula is composed of 84 % ingredients from natural origin (corn, potatoes, manioc and wheat (see ingredients)).
Duo Base & Top coat 636 : Is it a base coat, is it a top coat?! Yes and yes! It's both! 636 is a must have for any nail varnish collection. As a base coat it takes care of your nails, as a top coat it optimizes the performance of your nail polish. It can also be used alone as a clear nailpolish to strengthen your natural nails.

Non toxic product: toluene*, formaldehyde*, dibutyl phthalate*, formaldehyde resin, paraben, xylene*, camphor, rosin*, styrene and benzophenone. Therefore, with the new 10 free formula, we have now removed 2 new harmful ingredients: styrene and benzophenone.. Organic water-based nail polishes chip and flake very easily, so Zao has devised a nail polish that enjoys the quality of traditional nail polishes but without the toxic chemicals, resulting in an effective and long-lasting nail polish that does not compromise your health.

How do you use me?
Before applying the base coat 636 ensure that your nails are free from oils. Start from the base of the nail and work your way towards the tip, one stroke in the middle and follow on with one either side. Make sure your coloured nail polish, or any layers are perfectly dry before applying the next layer. Generally I would recommend using 2 thin coats of colour before the top coat for an even spread and best coverage.
Use the glitter top coat 665 on top of any nail polish colour, French manicure or just on its own to add a little sparkle to your natural nails.
