DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT

A nail treatment and base coat that enhances the appearance of nails day after day. Immediately after application, nails feel harder, are smoother in texture and look healthier. After 1 month of use, they’re 28%* stronger, 13%* more visibly nourished and 24%* shinier.

COMPOSITION

Camellia oil helps nourish and prevent dryness, while cellulose fills in irregularities on the nail surface for an even result. Natural mineral pigments neutralize the appearance of discoloration.

HOW TO APPLY

Apply LA BASE CAMÉLIA with the built-in oversize brush applicator, which delivers an even coat in a single stroke. Use alone for a natural-looking manicure or before LE VERNIS to prep for colour.

The CHANEL manicure:
Step 1: Moisturize and push back cuticles with L’HUILE CAMÉLIA.
Step 2: Protect and smooth nails with LA BASE CAMÉLIA.
Step 3: Add colour with LE VERNIS.
Step 4: Boost the staying power and shine of your manicure with LE GEL COAT.

*Clinical evaluation of 21 women after 1 month of use

    The only base coast that doesn't make me miss gel polish. It's dries beautifully and a couple coats are enough for a clean looking manicure. Giving my nail a break from gel was never easier ??

Good stand by color (Ballerina) to apply in a snap. La Bse beautifully smooths and strengthens nails.

JOANNA P on Nov 2, 2023
BEST ANSWER: Apply LA BASE CAMÉLIA with the built-in oversize brush applicator, which delivers an even coat in a single stroke. Use alone for a natural-looking manicure or before LE VERNIS to prep for colour.

We recommend protecting and smoothing nails with LA BASE CAMÉLIA, adding colour with LE VERNIS, and boosting the staying power and shine of your manicure with LE GEL COAT.
Should I wash away L’HUILE CAMÉLIA before applying LA BASE CAMÉLIA?
Helena K on Nov 1, 2023
BEST ANSWER: For how to best utilize, we recommend that you moisturize and push back cuticles with L’HUILE CAMÉLIA, then protect and smooth nails with LA BASE CAMÉLIA overtop.

From there, you can optionally add colour with LE VERNIS and boost the staying power and shine of your manicure with LE GEL COAT.
