      Trisha, I’m with you. A base coat and a top coat are both a necessity for me too. Unless, I have to test a nail polish for review. :)

      Icaria, you’re lucky you never had issues, I envy you. Nail polishes often stained my nails before I started using a base coat, but then that may be because I love dark shades.

    Nope! I don’t since I don’t expect my nail polish to last long and I’ve been pretty busy lately to even touch up or remove my chipped polish. I use my nails to open stuff way too much (like the packages in the mail haha) and they get chipped. I do wear a base and top coat when I have time though. My nails aren’t stained and don’t usually get stained unless I’m unlucky with a color or brand.

      Janessa, doing your nails can be quite time consuming as you need to wait for every layer to dry. I can see why you’d skip the base coat when you don’t have much time. I believe the staining is more of a problem with very dark, pigmented shades, so if you don’t use those, you should be fine. But I’m so used to wearing a base coat that, if I don’t have much time, I’d rather leave my nails bare for a few days than skip it lol.
