Questions & Answers for SEPHORA by OPI Jewelry Top Coats

Question
How do you remove this polish?
I love the looks of these polishes/top coats, but I have a problem removing it when I need to. It takes forever with normal remover and the glitter literally shreds the cotton pad I use. Does anyone know of a product that does not take 30 minutes to remove polish?

I wear a LOT of glitter nail polish. I read this hint on a nail polish blog, and it works great!

When you're ready to remove your glittery nail polish, put on some cheap top coat. It softens up the nail polish that's already on your nails.

Then use your nail polish remover like normal. It might take just a little longer than removing plain nail polish, but not much.

I now remove the glitter polish from ALL of my nails faster than I used to remove it from just one. Try it -- it really works!!

Are you using the full 'Acetone' type of remover? Also, hold the cotton pad (and I mean pad not ball) on top of the nail to let it soak before swiping, then remember to use an up sweep to the end of the nail, not across the skin. Also, finish with an oil to smooth the top of the nail and let rest before any new product is applied. Hope this helps!

Use your regular acetone polish remover - on a small piece of felt (about 3" x 3"). The felt has enough texture to 'grab' the glitter. Be sure it is well saturated when you apply it to the nail to remove the polish with any glitter or holographic effects.

You need to use an acetone based nail polish remover if you don't want to continue wasting hours and shredding cotton balls, sweating just to take off the glittery nail polish. Get an acetone based nail polish remover and it will swipe your nail beds clean! :)

It is really difficult to remove - which I think is what makes it long lasting. I use 100% acetone nail polish remover. I soak a cotton ball and then leave it on the nail for 20 seconds before I start rubbing it off hard. It takes about 10 minutes to do both hands. I'd recommend you do not paint your nails right away. I use Bath & Body's Cashmere hand lotion line and put it on my hands/nails. I then repaint them the next day.

I bought the polish remover in a jar and I soak my nails for a few minutes to remove the glitter. If I have a few pieces left Ver, I'll buff my nails and it comes off. Then I buff them again to smooth them out and repaint if I want.

Most glitter polishes are difficult to remove. Here are a few helpful tips:

1. Remove after a week. The longer it stays on, the harder it is to remove.
2. Use an acetone polish remover if you're in a rush to remove it. Please keep in mind, it can be damaging to natural nails.
3. The healthiest removal is to use a moisturizing polish remover, take your time, and plan to spend up to 30 minutes for the removal process.
4. Use thick cotton pads or cotton pads and saturate thoroughly.

Tape (or foil) remover-soaked cotton balls to each finger for a few minutes. Alternatively, you can use a rough pad (like those disposable face scrubbing ones) soaked in remover.

Try foiling. Apply a good amount of nail polish remover to a cotton ball or cotton pad, place it over your nail. Press down and wrap with aluminum foil so it's snug and let it sit for about 3-5 min depending on how heavy the glitter is. When you remove the foil and cotton pad/ball I like to push down and twist as I pull it off at once. Your polish should come right off in the cotton ball, there may be some left in the corners but it's easy to remove.

This seems to be the answer:

Step 1: Saturate cotton with acetone or polish remover (a remover with acetone works best).
Step 2: Place the cotton on the nail and wrap each finger in aluminum foil. Press down.
Step 3: Leave on for 5 minutes.
Step 4: Pull the foil off and your glitter polish will glide off, too!

First you should always use a base coat especially when using glitter polish...A great way to remove glitter polish is to soak a small cotton ball with remover and leave it on the entire nail bed for 30 secondds or so. Then wipe off excess poish.

I don't have acrylic nails, but I had a really hard time removing it from my natural nails. I ended up just soaking my nails with nail polish remover and scraping the glitter off.

Whenever I remove glitter, I put acetone on a cotton ball then place it on my finger and wrap it in foil. Leave it on for about 10 minutes. Magic!

Try taking a cotton ball soaked acetone nail polish remover and put it over your nail, rub a little but don't take it off. Cover the nail with the soaked cotton ball with a piece of aluminum foil. Do this for every nail. Leave it on for about 10-15 mins. This should remove all if not most of the nail polish!

Any glitter polish is extremely hard to remove even from natural nails - it sticks like glue! It is likely that you'll need acetone - not polish remover - to take it off acrylic nails. If that doesn't work, you'll probably need a new set of acrylics.

212 Sephora is one of the nail colors, not a jewelry top coat. You can find it if you look under the Sephora by OPI nail color. That's where you can find it because it's not a jewelry top coat.

I would love to have a set of mini jewelry top coat
A great idea so you can try different top coats would be a set of 6 or 8 mini bottles. Perhaps for the holidays? Anyone at Sephora who we can convince? Everyone would buy for themselves or for gifts.

Interesting idea, however... I use these so much I get to the bottom and have to come back for more.

I think the reduced price is a much better option than having minis!!!

depending on the color under it, it could whiten. if you sealed your base color with clear, then apply the blasted, then wait til dry an seal that, you might save it. try that. if it happens again, return it for a refund. if you have receipt, you can get your $ back (however you paid). if you used your VIB insider card an do not have receipt, they can look it up an give you a credit for it.
