Good day, polished people. Everyone has their favorite polish colors and brands, or tools and places to shop for nail supplies. Today, I'll walk you through a few peel-off base coat polishes. Since I change my polish almost daily, I need to be able to remove it quickly and easily. Glitters can be a nightmare to remove, and you know I love glitter, so a reliable peel off base coat is an essential staple for me. I have used several of the peelable bases and I've found a few that work pretty well. I'll start with the most recent one I've been using. When I read the ingredients for Unt peelable base coat, I thought I might have just wasted my money since it seemed like just water and alcohol. But I figured it would be worth a try since…show more content…
I found it at CVS for about $1.99 and was thrilled to see that it did just as well as OPI's Glitter Off. Again, two coats worked better than one, and it applied the same as OPI, going on white and drying clear. I also had the same difficulty peeling it off over patches and acrylic/gel nails. The biggest difference between this one and OPI was the cost. When I realized that my OPI Glitter off and NYC Strip Me Off were just "meh", I decided to try concocting my own DIY peelable base using good ole Elmers glue and water. I failed initially, but after a few tries, varying the water to glue ratio and adjusting the water temperature, I ended up with a base that was as good as, if not better than OPI and NYC, and at a fraction of the cost. So I added NYC to my collection of just-in-case products. For a while, I used only my DIY and was very happy with two coats. Not only did it work, but also, it seemed to leave my nail unaffected after peeling it off. There was no dryness or residual damage to the outer layer of the…show more content…
I fell in like with it right away using a single coat application. But I fell in love when I used two coats. Although Unt is my new go-to peel off polish, I will probably alternate between it and my DIY only because of the wear and tear on my nails. Elmers seems less drying and leaves the top layer of nail undamaged, while Unt appears to leave them dry and unhealthy. Summary Since I use the peelable base coats for very temporary applications and swatching, I can't attest to how long they last before signs of wear and peeling. I can only tell you what comes off easily. Using two coats, they all come off well enough, but Unt works best, in my opinion because they polish doesn't seem to pop off, and the peel off is smooth and in one piece. The down side is that it leaves the nails dry. My DIY worked good and didn't seem to be harsh on my nails although it had a tendency to pop off occasionally. I purchased Sally Hansen's new Big Peel Off, but haven't tried it yet. I may need to update this review at some point if it's noteworthy. I'll be sure to give it a try this week and let you know how it
