In Studio: Base Coats for Easy Glitter Polish Removal

All About That Base

Glitter polish can amp up the fun factor, but when the party’s over, these brands have a solution for easy removal.

As much as your clients love sparkling tips, removal has been a nightmare until now. SpaRitual Unveil and OPI Glitter Off Peel-able Base Coat make it easy to indulge in the glitz without having to scrape off the glitter. The peelable basecoats lay down a protective layer between the nail and polish to prevent damage or staining. Apply a thin layer of basecoat and let it dry completely before painting on a glitter lacquer. To remove, use a cuticle stick to gently lift up an edge and peel off the sparkles. —M.S.
