Maybe a stupid nail polish question...

My polish collection has gotten a bit out of hand so now I've ordered some of the nail wheels so I can swatch them all to remember what each one looks like.

 

My question is do I also put a base coat and top coat on the wheel like I would on my nails?

Thanks gals. No base coat but with topcoat it is then. :smileyhappy:

If you have a big back stash of topcoat/base coat, then definitely use them!

 

Otherwise, I don't think base coat would be necessarily, but top coat can sometimes add extra shine to the polish. So if you just want a colour reference, then no. But if you want a true-to-life swatch, then use topcoat.

Top coats can make a big difference in how a polish looks. I'm not sure where I'm going with that statement lol

If you want to. It wouldn't help or hurt.
