While glitter on the face or body doesn't ring my chimes, I can understand the appeal of having shiny, sparkly fingernails. There are so many different shades and degrees of glittery nail polish out there that it's hard to pass up the fun, zazzy trend.
The only downside to glittery nails? Removing it! Glitter polishes are rough, and even if you add a top coat to protect it, glitter polish seems to chip faster and create a lumpy surface. This makes polish removal a pain. The cotton ball scrapes across the nail's surface, and, since the nail surface is far from smooth, the cotton snags and leaves bits of itself behind. It's messy, tedious business, removing glittery nail polish.
I recently saw a tip for removing glitter polish that I had to try. You soak cotton balls in nail polish remover, put the soaked cotton ball on your glitter nail, wrap aluminum foil around your finger, wait a few minutes, remove the foil and cotton ball, and viola! The glitter is gone.
