Nail Polish Tip


I love glitter nail polish. I hate removing it. When I saw this video on YouTube, it seemed entirely to simple to actually work.
Basically you apply a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover to your nail, wrap foil around the nail to hold it in place, leave for 5 minutes, then remove it. When you remove it all the glitter nail polish will be gone. 
I know. It sounds like it won't work. But I did this the other night, and it completely does. I'd much rather do this than spend the 5 minutes scrubbing at my nail with the nail polish remover and swearing I'll never wear glitter nail polish again (which obviously will never happen). Yes, it looks ridiculous but I don't care. I'm happy to have found an easy way to get glitter polish off!

Any good tips or tricks you've heard lately?

I swear by putting splenda or equal on a grease spot. It absorbs and disappears.

deborah lippman nail polish remover mitts work great too, but they are a tad expensive.

I'm so into the sparkly polish too.
