O.P.I. Glitter Base Coat

To all of you glitter lovers out there, I’m sure we all feel the same about glitter polish removal. It is our worst nail polish nightmare. O.P.I. has created a base coat that is suppose to assist in making the removal of glitter a lot easier. Many of you had made your on DIY solution made of elmers glue and water. I must say, I have never tried it but give an A for creativity. The base coat as well as the elmers glue is applied to each nail and dryed. You the apply your favorite glitter polish and wear as you normally would. When it’s time to remove it, it should peel off with the assistance of an orange wood stick. Welllllllllll, not quite. It does not peel off so easy and can be damaging to your nail plate due to the scraping of your nail with the orange wood stick. Both base coats seem to have the same result. My best advice to removing glitter polish, is to take a cotton ball soaked with remover and allow it to sit on the nail for a few seconds. After a few seconds, the glitter becomes a lot easier to take off, with no scraping. It takes some time but thats the price we pay to be glitter girls. Don’t stop wearing your glitter because of the agonizing removal process. Just sit, soak, wait and wipe and your glitter woes are solved.
