Base Coat Stories is Putting Simple & Natural Nails Back on the Map

Most nail artists these days have to go overboard and come up with something out of the box to make a mark, but not Jasmin of Base Coat Stories. She became a true sensation on Instagram thanks to her commitment to simple, yet chic nail art.

Jasmin is a nail artist based in Germany, and she attracted over 140,000 followers since joining this Instagram in 2020. When choosing a name on this social media platform, she opted for Base Coat Stories because almost all of her manicures start with a base coat, a protective layer of transparent nail polish.

Jasmin has been very artistic for as long as she can remember, and tried many creative outlets over the years, from photography to painting. She didn’t stick to any of them for too long before finding her true love in nail art.

“I have always loved painting my nails, but only started taking nail art more seriously toward the end of 2019. I am not a licensed nail tech, I don’t do other people’s nails… I work on my natural nails and I only use regular nail polish and some acrylic paints here and there,” she explains on her Twitch page.
