Stick the landing! This special sticky base coat is formulated to grip on to stamps, powders, glitters, and loose foils for long-lasting wear. Perfect for reverse stamping, our Sticky Base Coat remains tacky for longer periods of time (compared to regular base coats) and transforms into a clean, non-adhering base when dry. Nail art has never been easier!


1. Brush Sticky Base Coat onto clean nails.

2. Wait for the base coat to become tacky. For use with reverse stamping or nail foils, wait 30-45 seconds. For nail art powders and glitters, wait approximately 1-1:30 minutes.

3. Seal your designs in with your favorite top coat.

This base coat is also perfect as the base for a long-lasting manicure!

"5 simple steps" for nail stamping


Apply Creative Art Polish over your selected design on the nail stamping plate.


Holding your scraper card at a 45-degree angle, gently scrape excess polish off the design towards the edge.


Move quickly! Using the squishy part of your stamper, pick up the image with an up and down technique.


With the design transferred to the stamper, place the design onto your nail bed using a smooth rolling motion.


Seal your design with our No Smudge top coat and swoon!

I LOVE stamping!

I have always loved having gorgeous nails, even before I went to school later in my life to do cosmetology. Now that I'm licensed, I'm working on trying to get better at my timing of not only my overall extension applications, but also with painting and designs, so that I can actively have more clients on my book per day. With nail stamping, detailed and ornate designs are SO easy and super quick to do and dry too. Guys, I am becoming so obsessed with even my own nail kits, that I've purchased, or received in my Mani X Me boxes, that I find myself changing my designs and polish every couple weeks, as opposed to letting them grow out way longer than I really should. It's honestly bc, I look at my own nails just that much more now, and also become even more inspired to try something new so much more often. Each time my application techniques get better and I become more daring to try even harder techniques for even more detail. This sticky coat is so great, especially if you want to venture into the wonderfully creative and more challenging world of reverse stamping. Whether you're using these on top of gel OR lacquer style polishes, you'll still get beautiful results. Plus there's SO MUCH online info, that you never have feel like your not prepared to do your own nails at home. The amount of education and inspiration they offer online is nearly endless. Great customer service is a major plus with this company also. It's a win, win, ask around. The variety of polish colors they sell and put in their boxes seems nearly endless, and there's so many shades and different hues of shades ti choose from. It would be nearly impossible for you to not find what you desire and than some. The delivery process is very quick and I've never yet received any broken or damaged products. You are seriously missing out on so much fun if you haven't tried nail stamping yet. Don't even get me started on all the designs and plates they have to offer online also. It's mind blowing, you HAVE to try this stuff for yourself! If you do the subscription boxes you'll not only get, but have vip access to all the limited edition colors and stamping plates that you'll only get in the boxes of you're a member. What are you waiting for! Try it!

The sticky base coat worked perfectly! It was tacky after about 30 seconds & was like glue for my reverse stamp. Anyone who wants to reverse stamp NEEDS this.

GREAT service and the best product for its cause. I’ve tried other brands and they don’t even come close to the quality Maniology offers. Great selection of plates and tools too.
