OPI: Spotlight on Glitter with Glitter Off base- swatches

A while back I shared the news that OPI had some great glitters coming out... today I have swatches for you along with info about the Glitter Off base, and they are all in fact great glitters! All are swatched over a black creme. Let me know your favorites and what you think of the Glitter Off base in the comments!

 Lovely dusty pink hex glitters along with holo small round glitter in a clear base
 Very small holo silver bar glitter (the only way bar glitter should be!) with medium hex silver holo in a clear base
 Where gold, rose and silver holo glitters mingle. Medium silver holo squares, nice and dense colors in an clear base
 My favorite out of the collection because it has some blue\purple pigments sprinkled between lavender, pink and magenta hex glitter in a clear base. Total win.
 Pretty sure this is Rainbow Connection's cousin. Multi colored glitters in a clear base that include hex of silver, green, orange, magenta, yellow, blue mixed in with smaller round glitters in the same colors. This one is super dense and reflective.
Love how this one looks on the nail but had to fish out the large gold sequins with my dotting tool; I'm ok with this. I do one coat of glitters then I get the sequins on the brush and just grab them with the dotting tool and place them on each nail. Minimal effort for a great look!

Here's what I love about this collection: the glitters are bold, different from one another, lots of sparkle is happening, dense and unique. As far as the Glitter Off base goes, I tried it under a nude OPI (post later on that mani) and I had chips within 2 hours. May be I did not let it completely dry? I was doing dishes so may be it soaks off? I love the idea however and would still use it for glitters, but most glitters need a base color so I'm not sure how that will work. I'll try more manis with the Glitter Off and see what happens, but I'm hopeful.
These can be used with Glitter Off -- a new, peel-able base coat that allows for quick and easy removal when applied beneath any glitter shade.  To remove, use a cuticle stick to gently push and peel the glitter lacquer off the nail. No nail polish remover is necessary for this final step.
