How To: Remove Glitter Nail Polish

I'm not too happy with my old glitter nail polish removal tutorial, so I decided to post a new one. I photographed this for Slovenian online store and I'm posting it here too. Old news in new pictures. 
How To: Remove Glitter Nail Polish
How To: Remove Glitter Nail Polish
1 - Cut a cotton pad in 4 pieces. Soak a piece in acetone or acetone free nail polish remover and place it on your nail.
2 - Wrap your nail with aluminum foil.
3 - Repeat steps 1 and 2 on all nails.
4 - Wait for a couple of minutes. Remove the foil together with the cotton pad by swiping it off your nails. 
5 - The glitter will stick to the cotton pad soaked in polish remover.
6 - You're done!

I (of course) picked a teal nail polish which stained my nails after removal, but hey... it is what it is. =)

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    1. I used BYS Matte Mint Green and BYS Starlette.

  5. Very useful and easy to follow tutorial! Btw, I couldn't help noticing how your nailbeds are slightly different sizes (at least they look so in the pictures). Since mine are different sizes as well, I was wondering: do you file your nails so the tips are all the same length, or do you adjust them to make the nails even when polished? I hope you understand what I'm trying to ask, and I hope you're not offended by my question :)

    1. Yes, my nail beds are different in size. I don't bother with it too much though. I just cut my nails where I think fits. My ring fingernail looks longer than the others in most cases, but that's OK with me. =)

    2. Thank you for your answer! Your nails are lovely either way :)

  6. You may also try Nubar Cucumber Polish Removal.
    I am a great fan of this product - works even better than these foil wrappers when you need to remove glitter!
    Don't know why it works better than regular polish remover, but it does.
    Also doesn't smell like hell :))

  7. This is great I have to try it next time I wear some difficult glitter!!
