How to Remove Glitter Nail Polish - Page 2

post #31 of 51

The best nail polish remover has got to be Zoya 3 in 1. I don't even know if it is acetone free or not! All I know is that it takes off the polish without leaving residue (like a red tint) and it gets off the glitter in one or two swipes. I only use 3 cotton balls and I have acrylics, so that is pretty amazing for me! It comes in a small pump bottle that is like $5, but it is worth every penny, then you can refill it with a bigger bottle. I found the bigger bottles bogo at a beauty supply store by me, so I am set for about a year! Seriously worth it! And, it doesn't strip or dry out your skin!

What a great tutorial! I get so frustrated trying to remove my glitter polishes.

I've found that acetone and a paper towel works for me to get glitter off. And I use glitter probably 2 out of every 5 times I do my nails if not more!

Foil's never worked for me so I'm definitely trying the felt!

I wear glitter polish often. I use a thick coat of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Base Coat and a quick-dry top coat (Poshe, Seche Vite, or Orly Sec 'N' Dry), always. After a few minutes in hot water (usually a shower or bath), it just peels off.

yeah thanks dear

I don't wear glitter that often (because of the removal), but when I do, I go find that pile of stuff I need to hand wash and get to washing. By the time I'm done with the last sweater, there's usually several nails that have popped the polish right off, and the others can be lifted off. It's not peeling because as the warm water softens and swells your nails a bit, the bonds between the polish and the nail pop free. Taking a nice long bath can do it too.

I found a pin on Pinterest that really made me think, so I tried it, and it worked! If you use and empty nail polish bottle and put Elmer's glue in it, you can paint a thin coat of glue on your nails first. You wait for the glue to dry, and then apply the glitter polish over it. You can apply as many coats of polish/lacquer as you want to! Then when you want to remove it, you use a cuticle stick to lift the glue from the edges and it peels of in one piece. I am not sure if this is allowed, but I am going to link the Pinterest DIY site here. It worked for me, so I thought I would share. Any feedback would be great!! http://pinterest.com/pin/178314466467636070/

I just use regular remover and these square cotton pads from the grocery store. They're in the q-tip area. They're kind of fluffy, and get caught on the glitter but they remove it.

I forgot to mention, for those of you that love Zoya Remove but choke on the high price (that would be me), if you Google 'Zoya Polish Remover Recipe' one of the first, if not actually the first, things that pop up will be a post called, 'Moisturize Your Nails With Acetone...kinda' by a blogger named loodie. in it she will give you the simple, 3 ingredient recipe to duplicate Zoya Remove, all it lacks is the purple tint and lavender 'scent'. I've been making my own for over a year and it works really well.

PS: Yes, I tried the real thing just to get the spill proof, 8 oz bottle to help protect my desk. $10 plus shipping. OUCH! The homemade really is just as good.

Never heard of this, but you probably just saved me a ton of money! Thank you! :-)

I recently received Nailtini's glitter polish in Millionaire complete with bar glitter and it was super hard to get off, even with felt. I actually had to soak my nails like they do to get the uv gel manicures off. I think maybe ill back off on number of coats in the future. I didn't even think of using foil. Good idea!

the foil method works the best for me.

I had material girl on from china glaze. I had 5 coats of polish on. Removed it yesterday and it was hell! Will try the foil method next time. Thanks

Absolutely brilliant idea!!!

I had painted my nails with Zoya Robin and a coat of Julep Carly on top. I forgot how horrible glitter was to remove! I used my Zoya remover, but it's still such a pain to take off. Plus, I'm not patient enough to leave foil on my fingers....

I use a $3.29 bottle of 100% pure acetone that i got at walgreens, I only needed one cotton ball to get EVERY bit of polish off my fingers, and it took all of 2 minutes.

Thanks for the tips!

I also use the foil method for removing all of my nail polish. One of my least favorite things in the world to do. When I first came across this just thought 'my god that's freaking brilliant!'. It has drastically cut down the time it takes for me to do my nails.

felt is awesome. i had some travel polish remover wipes once and they were felt, after seeing how easy it was to get polish off with them ive been cutting squares of felt ever since.
