Happy Friday everyone. Today I'd like to share with you my experience with Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A-Peel. This is a product that I have been wanting to try for a very long time. Finally at the beginning of this month I ordered a bottle. I don't regret it one bit!
For those of you who have followed my facebook page for any length of time may have noticed that I don't tend to wear polishes with a lot of glitter in them. To be completely honest I love the look of these polishes but not enough to deal with the removal process. Until recently that is. I started to notice a few months back that I wasn't getting as excited about the brand name polishes any more. It seemed like I couldnt find anything new to add to my collection. I started looking at more indie polishes, picked up a few here and there. I'd wear them and dread the removal. I knew it was time to get my hands on a good peel off base coat.
I used a gorgeous glitter bomb polish from Lacquistry called Moonlit Marina as my test polish. You can find photos and my thoughts about it in this post.

I used a thin coat of Glitter A-Peel 2 coats of Moonlit Marina and 2 layers of top coat for my manicure. Finally after 3 days of perfect wear I was ready for a manicure change. I used a rubber cuticle pusher to gently lift off my polish around my cuticles and here's what happened.
I even had the polish on one nail just pop off on it's own while I was removing my manicure. Unfortunately not every nail came off this easily but it was still a lot easier than the foil method.
Please excuse what looks like dry ragged cuticles. It's actually some remnants of the manicure that were a little stubborn. I wanted to take a during photo to show you my truest results. One swipe with remover at the end cleaned that up nicely. I have a feeling if I'd used a slightly thicker layer as my base all 10 nails would have removed as a single piece. And I'm going to test that theory out in the next few days.
Over all I am very happy with the result that I got and wish I would have picked up a bottle sooner. I cant wait to wear all the new pretty polishes that I've purchased and then neglected because I didn't want to bother with the removal. Be on the look out for those polishes to make an appearance on my blog soon.
I'd love to hear about your experiences with peel off base coats or any tips you'd like to share. As always thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
