OPI Glitter Off

Hi! Today I would like to share with you my review of the OPI Glitter Off base coat for natural nails. This peel off base coat allows you to enjoy beautiful glitter manicures without the pain of having to remove them with endless rubbing or using the foil method.

First to show how it works...


  1. Apply a thin coat of OPI Glitter Off base coat
  2. Allow the base coat to completely dry. It will turn a clear matte.
  3. Pile on the glitter!! Shown here is OPI You Pink Too Much (layered over OPI I São Paulo Over There)

    Enjoy your mani!!
  4. When you are ready to remove your manicure, take a soft cuticle pusher and gently slide it along the edge of the polish until it starts to lift
  5. Continue to push the polish off the nail with the cuticle pusher
  6. Remove any remaining polish with a bit of acetone and you are ready for your next mani!

The base coat applies easily and the most difficult part about using it is waiting for it to dry. Removal is quick and painless. I wore my manicure for 24 hours and it lasted through a shower and multiple hand washing without peeling off on it's own. I cannot say with certainty how long it will last. Obviously if you pick at your manicures it will not last. When left alone, I think it can easily be worn for days with no issues. It is perfect for a special occasion to enjoy the sparkle, glitz and glamour and save yourself the hassle of removal. For that reason, I rarely wear glitter without a peel-off base coat!

I couldn't help but think back to my self-made school glue peel off base coat when trying this. The OPI base coat is a bit thinner and therefore is easier to apply, but if I thinned out my school glue base coat with a few drops of water, I'm not sure I would be able to tell them apart...

Thanks for looking!

  1. I like this base coat too, but when this runs out I will use the bottle again but fill it up with glue and a little H2O!! Great minds!!

  2. Good to know it works! I was curious if it was worth the buy since I've used the school glue method too.

  3. You know, I bought this and applied textured polish on top. I wore it for a few days and then absolutely could not peel it off.

  4. Oh, really hope that they'll come up with a pee-off that works on top of gelpolish. :)

  5. Great review. I have from essence a peel off base coat and I decided after finishing it to make a home made one, I am curious how it works!

  6. I don't use glitters so often but it's good to know that these glitter off base really works! :-)


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
