Soak a small cotton ball in nail polish remover (acetone or non-acetone — it doesn’t really matter) and apply it to your nail.
Secure the cotton ball on your nail with a small rubber band or cover the nail and cotton ball in a small strip of tin foil, being sure to firmly wrap it and secure the cotton ball in place.
Wait about 8 to 10 minutes for the polish remover to work its magic.
Gently slide the cotton ball off of the nail, which should take all of the glitter polish with it. Alternatively, you can use polish remover pads or a makeup remover pad to swipe the glitter off the nail.
Sit back and be dazzled at how easy you were able to remove your glitter nail polish, because whether you have one coat of glitter on your nails or 8 coats of glitter on your nails, it’s a foolproof removal method that even works on gel polish. It’s simply one of the best hacks we’ve found, and magazines like Allure and Glamour agree.
