New York Color 'Strip Me Off' Base Coat


Glitter nail polish is a right pain to get off and it's a lot harder to remove than regular colours. I get so irritated that, despite owning lots of glitters, I tend to shy away from them because I can't be bothered with the task of getting it off. 

When I noticed a few brands were releasing an 'easy peel' glitter nail polish base and jumped for joy, popping the first one I saw into my basket. It wasn't until I got the New York Color 'Strip Me Off' Base Coat I had a sneaking suspicion I might have been slightly ripped off...


I felt like this because when I got home I though the contents in the bottle looked no different to some cheap glue. It's a beauty hack that many of us know so I felt a little cheated if that was all that was in the bottle.


One good thing is that it is very easy to apply. It applies just like a nail polish but it does take a little while to dry, which I would expect from a tacky, adhesive base. Once dried it goes clear so acts as a great base for any nail polish.

The main problem with this is that it's very easy to peel off. I know that's the point of the product, but there is not way you'd have a full set of painted nails last longer than a day when using this base coat. The slightest catch and it starts to peel away. It's also really tempting to peel it off yourself!

Every cloud has a silver lining: I think this base will be ideal for m e because I like to change my nail polish so frequently! I can change it every single day now without the hastle of getting a load of nail polish remover on my hands and I don't have to worry about those pesky glitters.

Yes, I may have paid £4 for a fancy bottle of glue, but I will be finding many uses for this product!

  1. Ooooh good review Becky. I love the idea of this nail polish, especially at Christmas when glitter is my favourite love/hate product!
