How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish Easily!

Hey Everyone!

So we all have that glitter polish that we love, and would wear every day if we had the chance, but it's such a pain to remove and takes so long that we can never be bothered to wear it, or when we do we regret it. Sick of ripping 1,000,000 cotton wool pads trying to get that glitter polish off? Then stay tuned for my simple, quick, easy & stress free way to remove glitter polish.


Cut two and a half cotton pads into quarters, and cut 10 strips of tin foil about an inch thick, and 2 or 3 inches wide. You will also need some nail varnish remover.

Soak the quarter of cotton wool in the nail polish remover, and put on your nail.

Wrap a strip of tin foil around your finger, and make sure the cotton wool stays on the nail.

Do this to all 10 fingers(or 2 thumbs and 8 fingers) and leave for 5 minutes. More stubborn polishes may need 10, but I have found 5 works well for most glitter nail polishes.

After 5 minutes of looking gorgeous, with your star wars-esque looking fingers, twist the foil back and forth one or two times and pull them off your fingers. Then you will be left with nails looking like these!(I took this photo immediately after taking the foil off.

Here's the glitter on my nails before I removed it!

Here's another example of glitter polish I wore this weekend that came off exactly the same:


I hope you found this helpful, let me know what you think and tell me if you try this!
