Hello, my dear readers! :)
I mentioned in my last post that I have some swatches/reviews of some Essence products for you and today I wanna show you the one I am most excited about!
-- The Essence Peel Off Base Coat! --
Let's see what it says on the package:
"fast and easy change of colour and effect nail polish. this innovative, solvent-free peel off base coat allows you to peel off your nail polish whenever you want, wherever you are! no remover needed!"
Sounds pretty good! Of course any nail polish addict will think of one thing now: glitter polish!!! We all know it's freaking hard and annoying to remove glitter polish, so this base coat may be the solution to our problem, right? :)
The instructions are very easy to follow: first apply a generous layer of this base coat and allow it to dry for 10 minutes and then just apply the polish of your choice!
Here's a bottle shot + the package it came in. When you apply it on your nails it's white just like in the bottle. After it dries it's completely transparent.
(I hate to show my naked nails, but I kinda have to for this review...see what I'm willing to do for you guys ? :P)
To test this base coat of course I tried out glitter polish but also a dark navy blue, to see how the base coat prevents staining!
After I applied this "test mani", I actually started to really like it :D Maybe I'll wear this as a full mani soon ;)
I let it dry and also wore it for an hour or 2 before starting to peel it off. I used an orange stick to lift the edges near my cuticles. I tried to remove it in one piece, but that doesn't really work, so I just kept using my orange stick until the polish was completely off my nail.
I have to say I'm very impressed! My nails looked very clean, without any polish or glittery mess left! It's very easy to peel off the polish once you lift up the edges, until then it stays perfect in place!
On the package there is a little advice:
"avoid hot water for 3 hours after application"
So keep that in mind when painting your nails ;)
The peel off base coat costs 2,25€ here in Germany and I have to say I'm very glad I bought it! I can wear glittery polishes more often now and avoid the messy removal! Yes! :D
So that's it for today, I hope this review was helpful for some of you! And let me know if you'll go buy it or if you have it and like it as much as I do! ;)
Have a great weekend! x
