When practicing different designs on artificial press on nails do you have to use a base/top coat still or would a color coat turn out same as if you had used base/top coat on your own natural nail?
Any recommendations on what kind of artificial nails are best to practice on or will any old kind do ($store kind)

No need for base or top coat. Base coat is clear so no colour colour change would happen. Top coat is used to seal and protect the colour coats. Practice nails won't be 'used' so no need for protection.

I don’t use base coat. Only use top cost if I’m going to display the nail x
