NYC Strip Me Off vs. essence peel off base coat

Hi there!

Nedavno me draga Tanja obradovala slatkim paketićem, dijelom kojeg je bila i NYC Strip Me Off baza. Vidjela sam da je ona koristi kao pomoć pri čišćenju zanoktica kod štambiljanja. Naravno, morala sam je i sama isprobati u istu svrhu.
Danas sam radila suptilan gradijent... na kraju je ispao i previše suptilan te jedva zamjetan, no never mind. 
Prvo sam izabrala lakiće.

Recently, I got nail-mail from my dear Tanja, in which I got NYC Strip Me Off base coat. I saw that Tanja use it as a help while stamping, so I had to try it myself.
I did very subtle gradient... well, too subtle, but never mind.
First I choose the polishes I will be using.


Oko noktiju sam nanijela sloj NYC Strip Me Off baze. 

Around my nails I applied a layer of NYC Strip Me Off base coat.


U međuvremenu sam i nokte pokrila bazom, a kad je Strip Me Off bio suh,odnosno proziran nastavila sam s manikurom.

Meanwhile, I also applied base coat on my nails. When Strip Me Off was dry and transparent, I proceeded with the manicure.


Ta-daaaaa! Gradijenti su prilično packavi, ali zato zbilja prekrasno izgledaju.

Gradient manicure is pretty messy, but it looks awesome, if you ask me.


Odstranjivanje nije nikakav problem. Lagano sam najmanjom točkalicom odigla jednu stranu ljepila, pa onda zaokružila dok se čitava nije odigla od kože.

Removing the residues wasn't problem at all. I pushed the smallest dotting tool under the base, lifted it up and peel it of.


Možete zamisliti da Vam nokti ovako izgledaju nakon gradijenta!? Tu jedva da je ostalo išta za počistiti. Na stolu vidite da su sve 'zmijske kože' ostale u komadu i da skidanje zbilja nije problem.

Does your cuticles look this clean after gradient!? As you can see, there's almost anything left to clean. My 'snake skins' are all in one piece, so it's obvious that the removal was pretty easy.
 

Što se u međuvremenu događalo s drugom rukom?
Oko noktiju imam essence peel off bazu, već je suha pa je prozirna, ali vidi se da se koža oko noktiju sjaji.

What about the other hand?
On this, I applied essence peel off base coat. It's already dry, so it's transparent but you can see that the skin is shiny.
 

Napravila sam isto što i na lijevoj ruci, zapackala se gradijentom.

I did the same thing as on left hand - mess with gradient.


Još jedno super lako odstranjivanje u par poteza. Trebala sam ovo probati i ranije.  

Once again, removal was pretty easy. I should have done this so much sooner!


Osim što sam pokvarila uzorak na dva prsta, nespretno se dotaknuvši noktom druge ruke, obje baze su odlično odradile svoj posao. 

With my nails, I spoiled my manicure a bit, but both of base coats did their job with excellency.


U unutrašnjoj korici NYC Strip Me Off baze možete naći detaljna uputstva i sastav...

Inside the sticker of NYC Strip Me Off nail base, you can see instructions and the ingredients...


kojeg nema na essence bočici, a na žalost, nisam ga uspjela pronaći ni online, no sumnjam da tu ima velikih razlika.

which I wasn't able to found it on essence bottle, unfortunately, not even online, but I don't think there's any big difference. 


Ono što sam ja primjetila, NYC Strip Me Off je nešto gušći pa ujedno nešto lakši za nanošenje, a time i odstranjivanje. Kad bih morala birati između ove dvije baze, odlučila bih se za NYC. No, kako je u Hrvatskoj nemoguće nabaviti ovaj brand (ili se varam!?) i essence će poslužiti. 
Moram reći da su ove baze puno praktičnije i jeftinije rješenje of tekućeg lateksa, o kojem sam Vam pisala ovdje

The only difference is that the NYC Strip Me Off is something thicker, so it's a bit easier to manipulate with it. If I had to choose, I'd took NYC base, but don't think that essence will let you down.
I have to say that these base coats are more practical and certainly cheaper solution from liquid latex that I mentioned here.

Kako Vi čuvate svoje zanoktice? Čuvate li ih uopće?

How about your cuticles, do you even protect them?

Thanks for stopping by, Žana

  1. Moram priznati da sam jednom probala u tu svrhu koristiti Essence Pell Off bazu, ali nije mi baš išlo... Mislim da sam nanjela pretanak sloj.
    Sad koristim disperzno ljepilo Kores koje sam kupila u Narodnim novinama - 60 ml dođe oko 7 kuna :)
