OPI Underneath the Mistletoe

November 7, 2013

Are you ready for a gorgeous dark red glitter? OPI’s Underneath the Mistletoe is absolutely gorgeous! I find that it’s a bit easier to remove glitter polishes when I first paint a coat of regular polish, so I did paint one coat of Nicole by OPI Sealed With a Kris, and then painted two coats of Underneath the Mistletoe.

    Started “follow” you on twitter due to your wonderful craft videos, then this started popping up on my dashboard and I must say you have inspired me to start painting my nails again :) Thank you :)

    Hey Kristina! So I have very recently become interested (read OBSESSED lol) with painting my own nails and have enjoyed all your tips and tricks. I tried glitter polish for the first time the other day and had a heck of a time getting it all off my nails so I’m thankful for your tip about applying a base color first. My hubby just bought me one of the OPI liquid sand colors – do you have any and wondering if you think I need to do the same for easy removal?

      Lynn- try the Zoya nail polish remover. It’s a bit pricey but it takes glitter off well.

    Love this color. Looks similar to China Glaze Ruby Pumps. Beautiful.

    Hi Kristina… Thanks so
    Much for the tip regarding using regular polish under glitter polish. Oh my goodness! I usually stay away from glitters because it’s so tough to remove. Thanks again! Lisa

    I have promised myself no more polish. But this is a must have. It look stunning. Lynn I find glitter polish easier to remove by putting remover on a cotton pad leave it there wrap in a little tin foil and leave it for few minutes. It should just slide off. Liquid sand polish comes off much much easier then glitter polish.

    I ran to Ulta to buy this color and I am in love. Thanks for the color base coat tip. I used an old OPI color I love, Bogota Blackberry and it looks so great.
