Barely There Base Duo - 2-Piece Color Correcting Base Coat Set
Our Barely There Base Duo comes with two semi-sheer base coats formulated to enhance your natural nail color for a cleaner, healthier appearance. Use the Brightening Base Coat to bring a cleaner, whitened appearance to your natural nails or paint on our Concealing Base Coat to cancel out staining and repair discoloration for a lively, glowing blush to your nail beds.
To use, apply one thin, even layer of your desired base coat to enhance your natural nail color, then paint over or stamp directly on top. Works wonderfully for negative space and french tip manicures.

I was a little skeptical of getting these polishes as first, as I didn't know if "barely there" was actually going to make a difference for my nails or not. I do a lot of nude manis with stamps over them, and have been looking for a lighter polish that would let the stamp be the focus and not be too opaque. The Brightening base coat is now my Go To for 'naked' manis that highlight the stamp. I have yet to use the Concealing base coat but I know it will be great as well. Maniology never disappoints!
I do a lot of nail art, and my nails have significant yellow staining. Brightening basecoat - this is a nice base I can see being great for most people. My nails are so stained, however, that it took 3 coats to cover the yellow. It's still actually beautiful, but at 3 layers it's a little too thick to pass as natural. Great smooth formula. I will use it, as a base & maybe even alone, but I think it's brightening quality would work better on people with less staining or other issues. in photos it looks like it's a little yellow but it actually does look more pink in person. Concealing basecoat - this is the miracle product I want to always keep stocked. It has a slight purple tint, so it doesn't look like naked nails but does look like a nice base or even clear coat. With this I can actually try some negative space ideas I thought I would never be able to do!
Whenever I seen nail art that looks like the base is nude I always get jealous because my nails have weird white Mark's on mine from pealing my polish off... BUT these COMPLETELY cover any imperfections and I love them. The purple one leave them looking natural and the tan is perfect for a french tip
These base coats are wonderful. Both live up to what they promise to do. I particularly like the Concealing Base Coat. It makes my nails looks so nice that I can do simple stamping, with a great top coat, for a nice "stamped-on-bare-nails" sort of look. Very nice.
This set is a must have, the pink is great for a french mani!
