Removing Glitter Nail Polish

For all the girls who love glitter nail polish as much as I do, but hate taking it off....this is for you.

Glitter nail polish is like cement! Getting it off your nails is a serious pain in the ass. You have to scrub and scrub and then scrub some more to get it off. However, last summer I learned of a way that has taken all the scrubbing out of the picture. It's still a bit of a pain in the ass, but it's worth the time. It takes about 10 minutes. As I was doing this process, I thought "maybe I should blog about this!"

So I took pictures. Forgive the poor lighting and terrible photo quality. I was trying to take a picture of my right hand with my left hand....not easy since the button to take the picture is on the right side of the camera....but I digress.

Items you will need are: Cotton pads, polish remover and foil.

1. Cut 10 squares of foil that are about 3x2 inches.
2. Cut cotton pads into 10 squares that will cover your entire nail with a bit of overhang.
3. Douce the cotton pads with polish remover. I pour some in the cap and dunk the pads in it.
4. Lay the cotton pad over your nail and then wrap the foil around your finger. Continue process for each nail.
5. I let them sit for 3-5 minutes depending on how thick the coat of glitter polish is.

6. When it's time to remove them, grasp the foil ends and twist back and forth so the cotton pad is rubbing against your nail.
7. Pull the foil and cotton pad off together.
8. VoilĂ ! Not a speck of glitter polish remains!
