Most of the people don't like Mondays but I'll give you a reason to look forward to this day of the week. Today I have a really helpful tip for you manicure-maniacs out there. I think that everyone who has used glitter nail polish has also had trouble removing it but with the two tips I'm giving you today you can keep your nerves spared.
Why can't the glitter be removed with the traditional cotton pad? Because it rips the pad up before the nail polish remover has the chance to act. What you can do now is on the one hand use a resistant piece of cloth. At least the cloth won't be destroyed so easily but you'll still need time and patience. Therefore I prefer the other tip that will follow now:
On this one finger I was wearing an Essence Special Effect glitter topper and I thought it would be easy to remove it because the glitter discs where quite big. But it was just as hard as with any other glitter nail polish I've had to remove so far.
To remove the glitter easily just take a piece of a cotton pad (you can part it in two to save cotton pads) and saturate it with nail polish remover. Then put the pad around your nail. You can add aluminium foil to make sure the remover doesn't dry out. Then wait for about 5 minutes...
... et voilà. When you pull off the pad the glitter should be removed and you just have to do the precision work.
I think I don't have to mention that this is extremely bad for your skin and that you shouldn't do this too often. After removing the pads wash your hands immediately and use a moisturising hand lotion afterwards.
I hope this was helpful and I can't wait for you guys to try this out and tell me if it worked for you.
