Glitter Removal as Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Good evening glitter lovers! Love glitter but hate using the polish because of the difficult removal? Does it take you over an hour to remove all that glitter with remover? Do you pick at the glitter but hurt your nails? Then welcome to *drum roll* the tin foil removal method! Here's what you're gonna need:

1. Acetone or non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover
2. Scissors
3. Tin Foil
4. Jumbo Cotton Balls 

So remember that wonderful Lynnderella I had on? Cauldron Drippings? Well because I used more of its glitteriness than the average person, I knew it would be an extremely bad experience getting it off. However, I heard about this method, so here I am to share it with you!  Take a cotton ball and soak it in remover (like 2 shots of remover) and press it onto your nail. Then cut a piece of foil large enough to wrap your finger and cover the tip of your finger. Do this for one hand at a time and you'll get this:

The key is to wrap it tight enough, so no air can get in. What does air do when you have some remover handy to clean your dotting tools or your cuticles? It dries up! So this prevents the remover from evaporating!  Let your nails stay wrapped for about 7ish minutes, and when you go to remove it, firmly grasp where the cotton ball is, and pull it off with the foil.  There may be some residue left, so scrub with another cotton ball with some remover. It will come off easily since the nail has been soaked.  Get the glitter off quick before the acetone dries and the glitter sticks!  This really does work, even if you think too much glitter is left when you unwrap. It comes right off with a light scrubbing of a cotton ball. Then you get this! Any questions, just ask! Now enjoy glitter polish! :)


  1. With your fingers wrapped in tin foil like that, you look pretty scary!
