Now at Ulta: NEW OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Base Coat
(retail: $9, 0.5 oz)
If you've ever worn a glitter nail polish, you know that they're difficult to remove if you're using traditional polish remover and a cotton pad. Many of us use the Foil Method for glitter removal (100% effective, but also time-consuming) and some of us prefer products like the Target Dip-It (also effective, but a bit time-consuming).
I know that several of you prefer to use a thin coat of Elmer's Glue (applied to the nail with a brush) prior to applying your glitter polishes, which acts as an easily-removable, peel-off base coat. I have yet to try the Elmer's-Glue-as-peel-off-base myself, but one of the most common complaints that people seem to have about Elmer's is that your polish can randomly come off in sheets, just a day or two after application.
This brings me to the new OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Base Coat. Could this possibly revolutionize glitter nail polish removal? Will it keep glitter polish intact longer than Elmer's can? How long will a glitter mani last when using this product? A day? A week? So many questions!
I know you probably have a few questions yourself, so allow me to direct your attention to this video:
I'm going to stop by my local indie beauty supply this weekend to see if they have this in yet (I'm not sure if it's actually in-store at Ulta yet...new products tend to show up on their website earlier than they show up in-store). As soon as I can get my hands on a bottle, I'll start testing it for review!
In the meantime, what do you think of peel-off base coats? Are you new to this whole concept? Are you excited to try this new OPI product?
