Simple mani...tested Unt peel off base

Target's brand, Defy & Inspire, Purple People Eater over my acry gel enhancement and Unt peel off. China Glaze DV8 on pinky.
Pueen stamping polishes in Rocking Metallic- Cool Aqua and Twilight Magenta. Plates; CICI & SSI 02, Uber Chic 16-03, Chez Delaney D14 and CJS-14.
Mani was a test of Unt peel off. Stamping done on day 2.

Unt peel off....My boss likes to keep our change drawer full to the brim with coin. Instead of sliding coin out, I have to pick it out....lots of trauma to my nail tips. In addition to having to cashier, I also expedite food, which means my hands are under heat lamps with high temps, and the tips of my nails touch hot plates. I also garden, and while I do wear gloves, sometimes I use my hand to dig a hole rather than a tool.

I thought this mani would peel off at the tips, but it didn't. The above shot is after day2 at work and gardening. My corners get the most wear, and I really thought this is where using Unt peel off would give me trouble. I think I could have worn this another day.

My acry gel enhancement is still new to me. My current routine is to do an acetone soak every other week and re-aply. I'd like to extend it to 3 weeks, however, by week 2 my tips feel weirdly flimsy. I don't always paint my nails, and giving out coin at work chips the 2 layers of gel top coat on my tips.  I'm thinking that it's due to the acry gel being exposed to water and a possible mani and non acetone remover.

Now that I know Unt peel off works, the next time I decide to go colorless, I'll use Unt and a clear top coat.
