Happy HALLOWEEN friends! 🎃 Today I have something a little different and that is the ASP Make It Peelable! kit.
ASP Make It Peelable! is a new base coat that allows you to peel off any of ASP’s Soak-Off Gel Polishes. And who wouldn’t rather peel off polish than soak it off? I know I would.
This is a whole new venture for me and it’s kind of exciting. As I have said about 2 million times, literally NO regular nail polish stays on me (without some kind of wear) for more than 24-48 hours. And as I am getting older, my hereditary nail ridges are getting worse, which is making it very hard to keep my nails in decent shape. The ridges tend to split my nails at the tips, and many people have mentioned using gels have helped them with this issue. I am slowly venturing into the land of gels, so expect some posts about various gel systems coming up in the future!
This kit, which is available at Sally Beauty, comes with a base coat, dehydrator/cleansing wipe, bonder, top coat, two gel polishes and a small USB LED lamp with adapter. It retails for $59.99 or you can get just the Make It Peelable base coat for $11.99. It also comes with a handy, easy-to-understand instruction sheet.
Here are the basic (condensed) instructions on how to do a mani with this system:
- Push back your cuticles and buff with a white block buffer
- Remove dust with a brush
- Use the Dehydrator Cleansing Wipe on all nails
- Apply ASP Bonder on all nails
- Apply Make It Peelable base coat on all nails and make sure to wrap edges
- Apply a thin layer of whatever ASP Gel Polish color you wish. Cure for 30 seconds. Repeat with a second layer and cure again
- Apply ASP Gel Polish Top Coat to all nails and cure
- Remove sticky layer from all ten nails using the Dehydrator Cleansing Wipe
- Apply cuticle oil to nails
This is the shade called Ego and this was taken after about 48 hours of wear. As you can kind of see, I didn’t do a great job of wrapping the polish (this was my first-ever go at this kind of gel system) so it is lifting on the tips.Once it’s time for removal, here are the basic instructions:
- Use a birchwood stick and lift an area near the free edge or cuticle to help remove the polish
- Peel it off (it comes off not in one giant sheet, but a couple small sheets)
- Remove remaining residue with alcohol
And that’s it! There is no remaining residue and it didn’t wreck my nails or do anything negative to them (aside from one little area on my pinky where the Ego color stained.)
I am pretty impressed with how easy this was and how nice they looked, especially for my first time doing gel nails. The removal was easy but not so easy that it will just peel off before you are ready for it to come off. The one thing I definitely need to improve upon (and what will make them last longer) is really ensuring my tips are fully wrapped, so the edges do not lift before I’m ready to remove it.
You can find this kit at Sally Beauty stores now and it’s $59.99.
