This basecoat was pretty good. It didn't completely "anchor" the polish onto my nails for days like it said it would, but it worked better than most other ones I tried (Bonder, I'm looking in your general direction).
OK I have to be in the minority on this one. I often get manicures at a JC Penney salon and the nail techs frequently use this. Quite honestly it doesn't make my manicure last any longer than any other base coat. I find I prefer OPI Nail Envy to this. Not sure why all the hype for this one.
EDIT: I just thought I would point out that I compared the ingredients for Stickey to the Nail Life Gripper basecoat available at Sally's, and they are nearly identical. And you get 1.19 oz of Gripper for $7.99 compared to about 6 bucks for .5 oz of Stickey at most places. So if you like Stickey you might look into the one at Sally's to save a few bucks. However I would also note that both Stickey and Gripper contain toluene and formaldehyde which can be rather hard on the nails.
WOW! I seriously wish I would have tried this basecoat sooner! This makes my polish last from 5 to 7 days with no chipping or visible wear......this is amazing stuff! Also isn't very expensive. Everyone should give this a try!
This is the best base coat that I've ever used. I primarily use it for my toes...I'm bored with my nail polish long before it even thinks of chipping! :D This goes on sale once in a while at Trade Secret for $2 off (which is about $4 I guess) which makes it a great value. I do have some issues with the brush, I've had a couple of tubes where the brush had a tendency to splay beyond repair. Oh well. I love this stuff. :)
Wow! This is the hands-down best base I have ever used. My hands are in water all day long, and normally polish turns into a chipped mess after a few hours. This made my polish last for 3 days without a single chip, which is a feat of astronomical proportions for me. I love it! I will continue to prime with this.
I've used Stickey basecoat for a number of years now. I haven't found anything else that works quite as well. I won't call it the holy grail because my polish still don't last more than 4-5 days, no matter what I use, but Stickey keeps it on longer than the 2-3 days I usually get out of any other product. I have purchased this at Ulta, Trade Secret, and even Sally's.
Really does help polish stay on longer. I will definately buy this again.
Really anchors polish to your nails. Dries very quickly and does what it claims to do.
