The best base coatThe key to creating a perfect manicure is a good primer. While no two fingertips are the same, Foreman swears Butter London's Nail Foundation Flawless Base Coat, $18, can fix any bumps, odd tints, or flakes. Even if you don't take care of your nails, or if your diet is off so that your nails have spots or are peeling, this product makes them look even and primes them perfectly for polish. "This base coat fills in the ridges and lightly camouflages imperfections, creating the perfect foundation for a flawless manicure," she says. Unlike clear primers, this base coat has a light nude hue, which allows sheer shades to stand out better when layered on top.
