How to remove glitter nail polish – the easy way!
I have a love hate relationship with glitter nail polish. I love them because they are sparkly, fun and downright beautiful. Glitter nail polishes are great for spicing up a mani that is a couple of days old and they also act as a great top coat to make your mani really last. BUT I hate them because they can be absolutely impossible to get off. You end up slaving away trying to get rid of these beautiful, little, pain in the ass sparkles – shredding cotton ball after cotton ball and seemingly getting no closer to your goal – it drives me nuts! It drives me so nuts, that I actually go out of my way not to use them, simply because I find myself dreading the removal stage.
I mean really, look at what this ONE COAT of Mermaid Tale by Orly is doing to my cosmetic pad.
It is a constant battle, with every finger.
Just imagine if this was a full manicure of glitter polish…I would literally be at this all day. So, I’ve been one to use glitter nail polish sparingly, or at least I was..before I stumbled across this useful tip…
Cotton balls, tin foil and polish remover!
You will need one cotton ball for each finger and a fairly small strip of tin foil.
Doing one finger at a time, apply some nail polish remover to the cotton ball, in a large enough circle to cover your entire nail.
Press it down onto your nail and wrap your finger tip in tin foil to hold it in place.
Repeat for all your fingers.
Wait about 5 minutes and simply pull off your little alien finger tips. Any glitter or colour remaining on your nail is just floating on the surface and comes off with a simple, single swipe of a cotton ball.
This method is SO fast and allows you to do all of your fingers at the same time…with no frustration and no headache! So wear those glittery polishes without fear and enjoy them!
