A couple of years ago, you may remember the trend among nailphiles that, to make it easier to remove glitter nail polish in a cinch, many were using PVA glue as a base coat. This meant that you could literally just peel it off, along with any stubborn glitter and forego the scrubbing-your-fingers-raw process.
Well, yesterday when I was on my way home from work, I received a bunch of cool press releases, which I’ll share with you all really soon!
The first one I’d love to tell you about is the OPI Glitter Off Base Coat, which is set to hit stores officially in March.
It promises to leave natural nails free of stains and also to make it easy to remove nail polish in just seconds without the need for a typical polish remover. You just peel the base coat and any polish on top off!
I’m really curious to try this one out, since you know that I have worn my fair share of glitter polishes. If I can avoid spending a long time to remove it, I’m all for it!
Edit: I updated this post to include step-by-step photos of how to use the OPI Glitter Off Base Coat!
Below is the official press release sent to me by PR:
Glitter On, Glitter Off!
OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Base Coat Allows for
Glitter Nail Lacquer Removal in Seconds
Glitter Off by OPI is a new, peel-able base coat that allows for the quick and easy removal of nail lacquer when applied beneath any glitter or dark nail color. Glitter Off provides a base for quick one-step removal and protects natural nails, while simultaneously making nail colors brighter. Glitter Off is designed to leave nails polish-free and stain-free in seconds, revealing a clean nail surface without the use of lacquer remover.
“Women love glitter nail lacquer, which adds a glamorous element to any manicure. However, it can be difficult and frustrating to remove. Now OPI fans can fully embrace the glitter nail trend without the accompanying hassle. Simply brush on one thin layer of Glitter Off to bare nails, wait until it dries clear and then apply as many coats of glitter lacquer as needed to get the desired look,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “Glitter Off is designed to last for a few days, allowing for glitter shades to be changed frequently or worn just for a special occasion or night out. It’s so easy to use – And when it’s time to remove it, peel!”
To remove, use a cuticle stick to gently push and peel the glitter lacquer off the nail. No nail polish remover is necessary for this final step.
Glitter Off features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. Glitter Off will be available March 2014, at Professional Salons and Spas across Canada for $10.95 CAN suggested retail each.

Are you interested in trying OPI Glitter Off? Do you think you’d wear more glitter nail polishes if you had a peel-off base coat like this? Have you ever tried the PVA-glue-as-a-base-coat technique before?
