CND Stickey base coat.

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Like I said in my last post, I had a very busy weekend.  My son's soccer game, my cousin's soccer game, I got to catch up and have a girls day with a friend, cleaning, cooking, ... the list goes on.  But it was all fun (except for maybe the cleaning part...)!  My nails, needless to say, have been through a lot this weekend.  I usually do them at least once over the weekend, but I really wanted to test out my new CND Stickey base coat and see how well my nails would hold up.

So I am here today with my thoughts on this base coat.  I have not been paid to do this review; I purchased CND Stickey base coat on Amazon and simply wanted to test it out myself.  The box describes Stickey base coat as an "anchoring base coat."  CND's website states "Stickey base coat creates a soft, sticky layer that anchors nail color to the nail and improves wearability."  These are the exact statements I wanted to test out.

Like I mentioned, I purchased mine through Amazon for $5.99.  Here are some bottle shots:

This is what my manicure looked like on Friday morning:

My nails have been through quite a bit this weekend.  I did a thorough cleaning of both of the bathrooms in my house (bleach, cleaning supplies, chemicals, etc.); my boys and I planted flowers; I did quite a bit of dishes, cooking, laundry, organizing, etc.; playing with my boys (and cleaning up their messes - they are 2 and 4 - you can only imagine!); soccer games; and the list continues.  Basically, I was not light with my hands and gave this base coat a rough test.

I took these pictures this morning:

There is hardly any wear!  The minimal wear that is there is definitely less than I would be seeing if I had used one of my other base coats.  What is funny is that the top color (the pink) wore a tiny bit on the edges, but the nude color is still there underneath (maybe this means I need a better top coat!).  I am extremely pleased with this base coat!  It worked exactly as described and held up through my busy weekend.  I would highly recommend this base coat to anyone who wants to help their polish last longer on their nails.

Have you tried CND Stickey base coat?  If so, do you love it as much as I do?  Any other base coats I should try?  I'd love to hear your feedback!

Until next time...
