Removing Glitter Nail Polish

Ok, so in a previous blog I went down the list of the latest trend in nail polish for the holiday season.
And on that list was several glittery gems to choose from.  But I know several of you groaned a little at the thought of removing it
How can something so pretty be such a pain in the keester?  Scrubbing the stuff off is harder than removing paint off a piece of furniture! You use a ton of cotton balls, a half a bottle of remover, and all your patience and finally give up and scrape it off! You know get a nail file and basically sand the polish off. But that can be hard on the nail and can cause chipping and splitting.

So what is a gal to do? While reading some of my favorite websites for latest trends I came across this article in BellaSugar. And it seems so easy. The key was right there in front of us all along. I had to test it out and I have to say, it works!

Here is what you need:

Cotton Balls
Nail Polish Remover

Aluminum Foil

First soak a cotton ball in the remover and apply to the nail then wrap the nail in the foil. Repeat on all the nails. (Tip only do one hand at a time)

Give each foil tipped finger a good squeeze to make sure the remover is saturating the nail.

Let it soak for about five minutes and then slide the foil off to reveal glitter free nails.
You might need to use the soaked cotton balls to remove excess polish near the cuticles. 

Repeat on the other hand.
See, easy peasy! So break out the glitter and polish away!

And Always,
Stay Fabulous
