Hello world! I am pleased to introduce you to my favorite base coat; Amour Sticky Base Coat. Ironically, it reminds me alot of CND Stickey but at a much more affordable price.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Alli….you didn’t like CND Stickey! What gives!?”
And that is true. I didn’t like CND Stickey because it left my nails horribly stained. But otherwise I loved it. Amour Sticky Base Coat seems to prevent staining yet still gives me the extended wear I get from using sticky style base coats.
I tried Amour Sticky Base Coat on a whim. I was placing an order on Trans Design and was in need of a new base coat. The small (.56oz) bottle of the base coat was just $2.75. I figured it was worth a shot.
Amour Sticky Base Coat goes on clear and dries to a slightly sticky finish. This helps prevent polish from chipping and peeling therefore extending wear. I find this base coat does a great job of extending wear and a good job at preventing staining, but if your main concern is staining, this isn’t the base coat for you.
This quickly became my go to base coat and I haven’t looked back. Despite the fact I’m at the end of my small bottle the product is still usable. It hasn’t thickened making it impossible to use. When I repurchased this I ordered the large, 2.56oz bottle. It was a mere $4.95. I’m pretty excited about this discovery!
The only downside of this product is, as far as I can figure, it’s only available from Trans Design.
I’m always interested in hearing about everyone’s favorite base coats. Make sure to leave yours in a comment below!
BTW: Worth noting, I have tried a nail polish from Amour and it’s fantastic (and yellow). You can check that review out here.
