Today I have something brilliant for you glitter polish lovers: Essence's Peel Off Base Coat. I already showed a trick with aluminium foil, but this trick is even better. Let's see it in action!
First apply a nice and thick coat of the base coat on a naked nail. It starts out as an opaque white goo and you want it to dry until it is completely transparent. Here you see it half-way the drying process (top finger coat has dried completely and is transparent; bottom two fingers are still half opaque):
After it has dried completely, you apply your nail polish. I used Golden Rose Jolly Jewels no. 113, as shown in yesterday's Swatch-It Sunday. It kept for 2 days, not bad! Then it started to chip and I started peeling:
After you're done peeling, there will be some residue:
You can easily remove this with nail polish remover. So in the end all you're left with is this:
Conclusion: the Peel Off Base Coat works very well. It is very important to apply a thick coat, it will peel off much easier then. I'm super happy to have discovered this!
