The easiest way of removing glitter nail polish - Innisfree Peel Off Base Coat Review


 I love glitter on my nails, but I really can't be bothered with removing it. It is so much hassle! I actually stopped using glitter nail polishes, until I read Amelia's post about the Innisfree Peel Off Base Coat. She has a little shop (here) with loads of Korean Beauty products and stunning jewellery and that's where I bought the Innisfree Base Coat from. It arrived really quickly, wrapped in gorgeous paper, with a cute note inside :) I also have to mention, that Amelia has a fabulous blog and if you are not following it already, you will fall in love! I promise! 

When I got my parcel, I went glitter crazy. I was painting my nails with my favourite glitter nail polishes every two days. It is so simple. You paint your nails with the Innisfree Peel Off Base Coat, wait for it to dry (about 5 minutes) and apply your favourite glitter nail polish, or normal nail polish and a glitter top coat. How does it work? The base coat turns into a clear film on your nails and creates a barrier and a perfect canvas for any colour! Amazing!!! Once you are bored with you manicure, you simply peel it off with a cuticle pusher or in my case- my fingers. You don't need nail polish remover, cotton pads- nothing! The manicure comes off in one piece in a second- literally! You can see it on the pictures below. Magic! I don't usually wear the same manicure for more than two days, but I kept an accent nail with the base coat and glitter on for 4 days, and it doesn't chip, unless you start picking it off :) Ooops. 
I can't help myself. I just start picking. I think that it could last for up to 5-6 days if you can stay away from it :) haha

Overall, it is a brilliant product! I don't have to worry about spending my evening with my hands wrapped in foil and the horrible smell of a nail polish remover in the air. It's not like I have time for it anyway.  The Innisfree Peel Off Base Coat is a life saver and a must have for glitter addicts like me! Removing glitter nail polish has never been easier!

  1. What a great idea, were you one of those kids at school who painted their hands in the glue and peeled it off? I don't think I could resist the urge not to peel my polish off ;)

  2. Ah I think that is such a great product but I would be worried that I'll just pick off my varnish because it is fun! I'm forever trying to peel my nail varnish anyway after a couple of day! This looks fun though :p x

  5. This is a genius idea, but not for me as I peel at my nail varnish even when it's the normal kind - this type wouldn't last two minutes!

  6. I actually read about this on Amelia's blog when she first posted about it, and have been curious ever since. Her blog is actually one of my favourite blogs ever, I actually re-read her posts pretty much every other day. Not a stalker, promise.

    I am such a glitter maniac, and it's great to hear that it actually stays on until you want to peel it off too! I was a bit worried it might just come off too quickly, as I don't always have the time to paint my nails more than once a week. Might have to put in a sneaky order!

  17. I have a peel off base coat from Essence and I love it! It makes wearing glitter nail polishes so much more enjoyable, as you don't have to worry about the hassle of taking off the glitters.

  18. I have never heard about this stuff before! I peel my nails sometimes even if I'm not wearing glitter :x I love wearing glitter, so I am definitely going to be purchasing something like this in the future! Thank you! :)

  19. Oh wow this is absolutely amazing! I love glitter polishes but like you have stopped using them because I just can't be bothered with trying to remove them. To be honest as soon as my nail varnish starts to chip I start picking it off and I love it when it comes off in one clean sheet so if you can get a base coat to make this happen I am sold! x

  25. I've heard glue does the same trick for much cheaper, although I wonder how long this will last...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've also heard these peel off base coats are basically PVA glue in a nail polish bottle and it works just the same! Such a clever idea though :) x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, wow, wow whoever thought of this is a genius! x
