How to Remove Glitter Nail Polish
Glitter on my nails makes me happy, however, the first few times I tried glitter nail polishes I remember thinking how hard they were to remove. Glitter nail polish does not come off as easily as regular polishes, and then the glitter particles can end up looking a mess all around your fingers during polish removal too. There are simple tricks to remove glitter nail polish easily though. If you haven’t tried the tips and tricks listed below yet, do give them a shot because these can save you frustration and energy.

Step 1: Grab some cotton balls/rounds, acetone, cotton buds/Q-tips, and either tin foil or Reynold’s wrap if you have it. I recommend acetone or at least acetone-based polish remover instead of acetone-free ones because the latter does not remove glitter as efficiently or as easily as the former does. Also, try to position yourself in front of the TV where you can watch something that’ll keep you preoccupied.
Step 2: Get enough cotton for one nail, soak it with acetone (and I mean soak. Don’t be afraid to use a lot, otherwise, the acetone in the cotton might all dry up. You can always wash and moisturize your hands afterwards), press it firmly to the nail, then keep it in place by wrapping foil or plastic wrap all around the tip part of the finger. Do this for each nail, and let soak for about a minute. Watch TV so you don’t get bored or impatient.
If you don’t have any tin foil or Reynolds wrap on hand, you can just press the cotton onto the nail using your fingers, but then you can only do one or two nails at a time so this can take longer and personally, I find that I’m more impatient when I do it this way.
Step 3: Take off foil or plastic if you’ve used any, then press down on the cotton and sweep it upwards, towards the tip of the nail. That should take off nearly all the glitter and polish neatly. If for some reason you find glitter still stuck stubbornly on the nail, do not scrape them off with a tool. Scraping them off can damage your nails beds. During one of the worst manicures I’ve ever experienced at a salon, I’ve had a nail technician scrape them off roughly with a sharp tool, and that left my nails peeling and ugly, I hated it. Instead…
Step 4: Use a Q-tip or cotton bud wet with polish remover to take off any remaining glitter or nail polish on the sides of the nails or on the cuticles.
Step 5: Wash nails and hands with soap and water. You’re done! No more glitter! This step is actually optional, but I like to do it to get rid of any acetone on my skin or nails. After that I usually clean my nails, shape them, buff for a bit, then moisturize with cuticle oil or cuticle cream (at the moment I use Bobbie Cuticle Oil and have yet to get a new cuticle cream since I used up my Burt’s Bees one).
