How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish Without Damaging Your Nails

We found two beauty hacks you can try!

We love applying glitter polish as much as you do. But when it’s time to remove the party nails, our adoration for these sparkly lacquers quickly turns to major inis because it’s such a hassle to do! Fortunately, there are two techniques you can use to speed up this process:

Grab a few cottonballs, soak ’em in nail polish remover, and place one over each nail. Once done, wrap the tip of each finger in foil to help the cotton stay in place and prevent the nail polish remover from evaporating. Wait five minutes, and once done, apply gentle pressure over each nail while twisting and pulling off the cotton and foil together. You may need to repeat the process once or twice, but you’ll have fewer scratches on the surface of your nails this way.
