Tin Foil Glitter Removal.
Who doesn't love glitter polish? Seriously, it is a trend that has lasted for a very long time simply because everyone loves sparkles. The only thing to truly despise about glitter polish is that it is the hardest thing to get OFF your nails again. Glitter sticks to your nails like little suction cups and the nail polish remover simply can't get under the glitter flakes to dissolve the polish under it. There are many tips and tricks out there, but here is a tried and true method most people swear by.
Find out how to use Tin Foil to remove glitter polish after the jump...
Yeah you heard me right, Tin Foil. Don't ask me the science behind it, I'll just claim it works by magic. Cut up tin foil into pieces about the size of index cards. Soak up some remover with cotton balls and place the cotton over your nail and secure with a piece of tin foil.
Yeah looks pretty silly. Do this away from others or risk having to put up with "TV antenna" or "robot" jokes. Some people recommend leaving it on for a little as 5 mins. I leave it on for about 2 commercial breaks. Your time may vary depending on how dense the glitter is. When you decided you've soaked enough (or are tired of family teasing you) slide off the cotton, pressing down a bit to make sure you get most of it off.
Any specs remaining can be easily cleaned off with a cotton swab or paper towel and remover.
Not too bad, eh? So next time you decide against sporting a glitter polish simply because you don't want to bother with removal, remember this easy way to get glitter off again.
