This stuff really makes a difference in making your manicure last
It’s like glue for your nail polish and as a result your manicure lasts longer than ever before. It seems to protect your nail well but I’ve only used it a few times and would need longer to say whether my nails yellow under the base coat. I always used Sally Hansen’s dual duty as a base and top coat and it kept my nails bright underneath, but this really keeps your manicure going.
I have thin pliable nails that flake at the free edge making polish fail/chip on the free edge easily. This is the best base coat I have found for my nail tip and I can often go a week without a chip. Don’t be put off by the unique color. It is barely visible on the nail and is fine even under light, sheer polishes.
Really anchors your nail polish
I’ve been using CND’s Stickey Base Coat for about three years, ever since I first read about it in a beauty magazine. It really does an excellent job of anchoring your nail polish down, and it makes my at-home manicures last much longer than they ever did before I began using it.The smell is a bit strong, but it dissipates pretty quickly, and it doesn’t add too much extra time to your manicure since it also dries quickly.It’s a great product to try out if you struggle with peeling and chipping nail polish.
Works good with good quality nail polish. With cheap “drugstore” stuff it doesn’t do anything but with opi & the likes it adds that extra shield. Works really well with glitters too, and I always use a top coat so I think it comes down to the right combo.
I like to use this when stamping. I apply it OVER the base color and never have problems with the image sticking to the stamper.
I did 1 stickey base coat on the pinky and ring finger, then 2 coats of pink and super shiny. Then the other two fingers I did 1 stickey base coat, pink, then stickey base coat, pink, and super shiny. Just click the image and you can see for yourself! These 3 polishes were fun to try mind they are my very first CND’s ever to own. I just love the formulas and how great they work!
