Out of all of the base coats in my collection, this one is by far the worst. I bought it because the bottle looked cute and I like the color club brand. This goes on matte and looks rubbery. After applying polish and my hg top coat, my mani lasted about 4 hours before it started chipping. This base coat actually peels off as soon as theres one chip...not good. Save your $
I'm a big fan of sticky bases so I wanted to give this a try. Sadly it was a disappointment. It did not create a "sticky" or rubberized surface for polish to grab onto like other bases of this kind. I can't say whether or not it prevents staining either because my manicure chipped on day 2. I say skip this - it may be more expensive but Orly Bonder or CND Stickey are a much better choice.
