Anti Fungal Base Coat Under Nail Polish - Prevent Nail Salon Fungus


nail polish base coatUsing an anti fungal base under nail polish, even under anti fungal nail polish, has many benefits. First, look for a base coat that contains FDA approved anti fungal's; many products contain only natural oils that are known to be anti fungal, which are not as effective as an anti fungal medicine.

Keep in mind that you are actually trying to treat fungal nails and use nail polish at the same time. In order to achieve the former is it imperative that the anti fungal treatment successfully do two things. First, the anti fungal base coat must penetrate the nail under the nail polish in order to treat the infection at the source at the matrix of the nail. Second, the base coat must stay on the nail and continually treat the fungal infection on the toes even after nail polish has been applied.

The majority of nail salons recommend a cuticle oil to strengthen the nail and help protect it from getting infected. Again, the issue with using a cuticle oil is that it will not fight a fungal infection and gradually allow the condition to get worse.

PediMD Nail Treatment System is designed as a base coat under nail polish that combines FDA approved anti fungal medicine, Clotrimazole 1%, with multiple natural oils and extracts such as Tea Tree Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lemongrass and Fennel.

The base coat treatment is designed as a two step system. First step is an Anti-fungal lacquer that penetrates the nail and attacks the fungus lurking under. the nail plate. The second step is an anti fungal sealer that binds the lacquer to the nail and ensures that the treatment stays on the nail even after nail polish is applied.

The first question that many women have is, "Now am I going to have to wait for three coats of polish to dry before I can leave the nail salon?" The answer to the question is simply NO! Both the Step 1 Lacquer and the Step 2 Sealer dry in a matter of 10 seconds so the only inconvenience is having to apply them as a base coat under nail polish.

Other benefits of PediMD Nail Treatment System, other Nail Salon fungusthan the fact that it will successfully treat nail fungus even when applied under nail polish, is that the treatment will strengthen the nail, promote the growth of a new healthy nail, prevent the fungus from spreading, and protect the nail from contracting other infections commonly found in nail salons.

In conclusion, not being able to wear nail polish when trying to treat fungal infections is no longer an issue! PediMD Nail Treatment System is a doctor formulated over the counter treatment that combines FDA approved anti-fungal medicine with natural oils and extracts and is engineered as a safe, effective base coat under nail polish.

One of the takeaways from the article is that adding essential nail oils to your Mani- Pedi Kit will help maintian healthy cuticles, strong nails and will prevent fungal infections. If you click on her article link you'll find a list of ten things that should be in your mani-pedi kit. 

Adding essential Nail Oils to your Mani-Pedi Kit has multiple advantages.

"I always and I mean ALWAYS take my own nail polish with me to the salon. Initially it wasn’t because I was afraid of anything, but it was because I’m particular and their colors are normally too neon bright for me or too dark and dreary. NowadaysNail Oil I’ve come to learn that safety is another issue that’s urged me to recommend everyone put together a kit of their own. You can carry your kit with you to the salon, because you just never know what conditions clients are walking into the salon with, and with the high turnover of clients you can’t always be sure that the tools they’re using are completely sterile. I talk about one major risk further down with Dr. Colon. Let’s get started.

Bringing your own is a great start, but make sure you clean your own kit too. Most items can be cleaned in soapy water. Let air dry before you pack things away for next time.

On to the icky stuff. Never again will I let them use recycled base coat or top coat on my nails in a salon and neither should you–you know the kind they’ve used on 20 other people before you. Here’s why.

I posed the following question to Dr. Michele Summers Colon who is a foot doctor in California who has come face to face with some of these issues and her response was shocking, but expected and very in line with the experience that residents had at an assisted living facility where I once worked at:

Can you get a nail fungus from using nail polish that has been used on someone else who has an active nail fungus?

“Yes, yes, yes! And you can get ingrown toenails from the salons too if the nail technician cuts the nails too short or at the wrong angle.”

She also kindly included a link to a medicated nail polish that they recommend to their patients that actually fights the infection. You’ll probably want to add that to your kit too. It costs $16 a bottle but is worth it. She also shared an article link with me about nail fungus in general since most people don’t know what it looks like or what to do about it.

Hopefully, creating your own kit will reduce the risk of fungus or any of the other contaminates or at the very least make you more aware of how recycled most of the products and items in salons really are. Share this will someone you know will benefit from it."
