Modi Peel Off Base Coat

10 Comments

I was shopping in Aritaum last week for some more of those great Modi glitters, when I saw this product. Modi have a peel off base coat. My mind instantly ran through the implications! My first thought was that it’d be really helpful in removing glitter polishes. They always take time to get off and I worry  the glitter pieces will scrape my nails. My second thought was, will this really work? Or is it a gimmick?

It wasn’t expensive 3,500 Korean Won. That’s around $3 USD. I’ve been seeing lots of posts recently about nail bloggers using hardware glue as a base coat to get glitter polishes to peel off. This polish seems to be Korea’s answer to that problem.

So, I tried it out. I spread it on my nails as my base coat. The first thing I noticed was that it was really think and gooey. There was no strong polish smell, no smell at all actually. It took a long time to dry, about 7 or 8 minutes. Once it was dry I applied OPI’S Fly from the Nicki Minaj range over it. Usually this polish is opaque in two coats but when I applied it over this base coat bald patches  appeared a few seconds later. It was almost like the polish was rolling off the base coat in places. But it was no big deal I just used an extra coat of polish and it was fine. I applied Modi’s gold glitter polish on top of all that, and a topcoat to make it look smooth and shiny.

I left the manicure on for a day (a whole day! ha! that’s about how long a manicure lasts me) and then came crunch time. I tried peeling it all off. Success!  Using just my nails I was able to easily peel off all the polish and base coat. Some of the polish even came off in one intact piece! (and yeah that did give me a thrill!) 🙂

I did notice that my nails were slightly stained blue from the OPI polish. That never happens with my OPI base coat. I think next time I will just apply the OPI base coat under the peel off one. Also, I think I will only use Modi’s base coat for glitter polishes. Overall, I was really impressed with this base coat. 🙂

  1. This looks a”peel”ing. Love the deconstructed mani 🙂

    I am giving this award to you, because I feel you deserve it. If you would like to pass it on to other bloggers, that is great, but do not feel any obligation. But, please post your answers to the questions 🙂 This is the really fun part!

  3. I’ve noticed that the ORLY rubberized base coat also leaves behind nails stained blue (only blue, for some reason). I wonder if it’s related to this type of base coat somehow. Neat trick, I’ll have to order this online for those times I use OPI’s glitter gold.
