Glitter nail polish is a party on the nails, that is, until it’s time to remove. That’s when it becomes all, you don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.
Over the years, I’ve tried every possible method of removal and none of them are a joy. The soak-off (aka foil) method, using squares of felt, scrubby jar removers, straight up soaking in acetone. They all work but none of them are fast and pure acetone is SO drying.
Enter the peel-able glitter base. I’ve been using a mix of Elmer’s glue and water but OPI has released their own version, OPI Glitter Off Peelable Base Coat. I decided to put it to the test versus my DIY version in the video below. If you can’t see the embedded video click here.
OPI Glitter Off Peelable Base Coat is available at salons and spas nationwide including including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ULTA.com for $9/ea for a .5oz bottle.
So, is this something you will try? Have you tried making your own glitter base coat at home? Will a product like this get you to wear glitter more often?Disclosure: Product samples were provided by reps for OPI. Affiliate links appear in this post.
