When I went and did gel nails at a salon a long time before, I realized how much an even nail surface does for the durability of the nail polish.
Because even though I had nice nails all the time then, I wanted to vary, and used to paint my nails with different nail polish anyway. And gosh what they kept good! Even natural nails often have small irregularities that cause the varnish to drop, but on a smooth surface, nail polish lasts much, much longer.
So it's an experience I carry with me, and before the nail polish is painted on, I polish the surface with a polishing file (I use Depends 4-step file*) which makes the nails smooth.
And then, as the finishing touch, I use a base coat that evens out the nail surface:
Paese Mineral Smooth contains small mineral particles that even out the surface of the nail and make the paint varnish more durable and even. The varnish protects the nails from discoloration and can be used individually or as an undercoat. Also contains vitamin E which nourishes the nail.
Mineral Smooth costs SEK 79 on Byher.se :)
It will soon be sold out, so be careful if you do not want to wait until I get the next delivery from Paese!
