Trying to remove glitter polish from your nails is like removing the trash from the VMAs: It seems impossible! But thanks to brave testers on sites like Snap Guide and Pop Sugar, a fool-proof method has emerged, and we promise it will put all of your fears and apprehensions about wearing glitter polish to rest — for good.

The Miraculously Quick Way to Remove Glitter Nail Polish

Step #1

Soak a small cotton ball in nail polish remover (acetone or non-acetone — it doesn’t really matter) and apply it to your nail.

Step #2

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.

Step #3

Wait about 8 to 10 minutes for the polish remover to work its magic. 

Step #4

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. 

Step #5

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.
