Anyone who has ever tried to remove glittery nail polish will know what a nightmare it can be. I thought I would show you a couple of methods I use to take it off which make it a little easier.
You will need:
Nail polish remover
Cotton pads or cotton wool
Sticky tape or aluminium foil
Some nail tools
Some nail strengthening polish
Step 1: Soak the cotton pads in nail polish remover. I am using a remover by Sally Hansen which is supposed to be good for weak nails.
Step 2: Place the soaked cotton pad on your nail and secure with sticky tape or wrap aluminium foil over it to make sure it stays in place.
Step 3: Repeat for all of your nails and leave for a few minutes.
Step 4: Twist and pull the secured cotton pad off your nail. This should remove all basic glitter, but if your polish includes some larger sequins, they may be left behind.
Step 5: These should have been loosened by the remover, so you can then remove them easily with a nail tool such as a cuticle pusher.
Step 6: Wash your hands thoroughly to remove any excess cotton wool or nail polish remover. This can be quite harsh on your nails so I would recommend finishing off with a nail strengthening polish. I am currently using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Advanced Strengthener which is excellent.
