You can’t deny that glitter nail polish has a major allure for those of us who love to play with our makeup and beauty products. Not only can you use funky, sparkly colors but now people are experimenting with cool ombre effects (or painting your nails all one color except for one nail on each hand that’s a super saturated glitter – it’s totally what the one sparkled glove version of Michael Jackson would have done to his nails if he’d been a woman. Instead of that he just morphed his face a lot… uh, moving on!)

One thing we love about glitter nail polish is that it has very long staying power. But that’s also a con when it comes to trying to get it off. I’m sure you’ve noticed, getting glitter nail polish off is a major pain. But there is a method you can use that will help you do it fast.

You need:

  • Scissors
  • Aluminum Fol (cut into ten small squares)
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Hand Lotion
  • Cotton rounds (cut in half)

How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish with Foil

  1. Cut up your pieces of aluminum foil.
  2. Take small pieces of cotton rounds and cut them in half to form half moon shapes. This way you won’t be wasting anything.
  3. Get one of the rounds wet with your nail polish remover (fairly heavily) and put it over one of your nails.
  4. Place a cut piece of aluminum foil over the cotton round, and wrap it around your nail/top of finger.
  5. Let sit for 5 minutes while you watch TV.
  6. Pull cotton, aluminum foil (and polish!) off by wiggling it off.
  7. If there are extra bits of glitter, use the cotton you’ve already used and rub off the extra. Focus more on letting the remover product work than just trying to use effort.
  8. Throw out your trash. Rinse hands, apply hand lotion!
