Kiko Nail Care 106, Ultra Long Post Stress Treatment Base Coat
Good morning ladies,
Today I’m talking about a nail care product by the italian brand Kiko: it’s the Ultra Long base coat, which is a nail polish base that stimulates the nail growth.
I always wanted to try this base coat by Kiko, so when I found it discounted (2,90€ instead of 4,90€) I decided to buy it 🙂
On the Internet I read many opposite reviews: some girls say that this base works perfectly and others say that it doesn’t work at all. So, what is the truth? Probably the ingredients of this base coat work better on some nails and don’t work at all on others. Personally it worked great on my nails and made them grow really fast!
This base is contained in a 11ml bottle and it is sold inside a black box (you don’t see it in the pictures). The brush is flat and large and makes application easy. This base coat expires in 24 months.
This base coat has a transparent pink colour, but once applied it stays transparent with only a subtle pink shade.
On the official Kiko website we find the product description:
Nail polish base with growth-stimulating ingredients, especially for short nails with a tendency to break.
A healing formula enriched with strengthening and hardening ingredients for stronger nails that grow more easily**.
Thanks to the special combination of vitamins, Ultra Long gives health and well-being to the nails:
– Vitamin E for an antioxidant and moisturizing action.
– Vitamin A to stimulate the formation of keratin, a protein that makes up the structure of the nail.
– Vitamin C to fight free radicals and keep the nail’s youthful look intact.
Thanks to the professional flat brush, application is fast and easy.
Indicated as a maintenance or post sculpting treatment, Ultra Long is a 5-free nail polish: it is formulated without adding harsh ingredients such as Toluene, Camphor, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin and Formaldehyde
Hypoallergenic = formulated to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions.
** Self-assessment carried out on 20 women for 4 weeks.
I’ve been using this base for a while and I must say that I have a pretty good impression of it: when I use it my nails grow really fast and they look also stronger! Some weeks ago I broke a nail and I had to shorten it, but with this base coat my nails reached the usual lenght in a week or two. I liked it very much also as a strengthening base: now my nails look healthier and stronger.
This base is also protecting your nails from nail polish stains and from yellowing.
Formula is self-leveling but if you want your nail surface to be perfectly levigated you must buff your nails with a buffer before applying this base coat.
The last thing about this base is that I can’t use it as an every-day base, because the strenghthening formula tends to dry my nails a little, so I feel the need to use it in combination with other base coats.
So, my opinion about Ultra Long base coat by Kiko is absolutely great and I suggest you to try it if you are looking for a base that stimulates your nail growth. On my nails it worked even betther than the Growth Energizer Treatment by Pupa (click the link to read my review!).
Sadly this base seems to work differently on different people, so it could happen that what it worked for me won’t work on you. In this case the only thing you can do is try it and see, anyway I can tell you that this is a great nail polish base and that it protects your nails from stains and yellowing.
You can buy it in Kiko stores and also on their online shop.
Have a nice day!
