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 anymore. It seemed like I couldn't 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 topcoat 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 its 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 was 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.
Overall I am very happy with the result that I got and wish I would have picked up a bottle sooner. I can't 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 lookout 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!
