To Be or Not to Be? UNT Peel Off Base Coat


Being a nail blogger your constantly painting your nails at least every 1 to 2 days. Oh, and don't forget the nail challenges, collages, and swatches that you have to do throughout the week. Participating in these kinds of things can be fun, but lets be honest it can be a wear and tare on your nails. Although, acetone does a great job removing most polishes, but over usage can harm your nails. Acetone dehydrates your nails, skin, and cuticles when used on a regular basis. In addition, it can also strip the natural oils from your nails which causes them to become brittle.   Therefore, I wanted to find something that would help reduce my usage of acetone. UNT Peel Off Base Coat is considered to be blogger's favorite peel off base. Also, it is specially designed for easy removal of glitter and dark polishes. When I first started my nail journey I was clueless about a lot of things. For instance, I couldn't tell the difference between a crelly or jelly polish. But one thing I did know, those type of polishes are always loaded with tons of glitter and are extremely hard to get off your nails. After going through about a million bottles of acid tone and cotton balls, I was over it. I saw some of my friends on Instagram raving about this product. So I decided to give it a try. For my first attempt I used "Get Clover Yourself" by Native War Paints. First, I applied one coat of UNT Peel Off Base Coat. Next, I let it dry for about 3 to 5 minutes. Finally, I applied the polish and topped it off with a clear top coat. On the next day, I noticed my polish was falling off my nails. Feeling disappointed, I removed the rest of the polish. Later on that night I decided to give it another try. For my second attempt I used "Paannnk" by In The Name Of Polish. I repeated the same exact steps that I did the first time and of course I got the same results. Feeling frustrated, I threw it to the side. After a few months of abandoning my UNT Peel Off Base, I decided to give it another try. This time around I thought I would try a few things differently. First, I made sure my nails were clean and free from any debris. Second, when applying the peel off base you want to make sure that you coat your nail evenly. I realized if I didn't do this correctly it made the peel off process difficult. Third, let it dry for at least 10 minutes. I found that I wasn't letting it dry completely and as a result, my polish kept falling off. I cannot remember if there was any directions on the box, but I did read in the product description on Amazon that results may vary for different individuals. If you are new to the nail community, I recommend this product as a must have. Or if you were like me and threw your UNT Peel Off Base Coat to the side out of frustration. Pick it up and give it another try. I'm so glad that I did! Yes, I was disappointed in the beginning, but once I made those few adjustments there was no doubt that we were meant to be! Every relationship has it's ups and downs, but some things are just worth fighting for.
