About: I'm a wife, a mom, a health activist, an artist. I want to learn how to do everything, basically, even though I know I'll never succeed. I love to read, and to write, and to share information people need but...

We've all been there. You've got the most gorgeous glitter nail polish, but you don't want to wear it because it's such a pain to remove. It's depressing if you're like me and love glitter!

But you don't have to avoid those funky polishes now. Removing them is easy as can be, and doesn't take anything you don't already have!

Supplies needed:
Nail polish remover or pure acetone
Cotton

You can use whatever polish remover you have on hand. Acetone can work more quickly, but it also dries out a bit faster. Non-acetone nail polish remover works more slowly, but it does work. I've used all kinds, and they all work.

It's as simple as saturating your cotton with your remover, then squishing it onto your fingernail. Then you let it sit for a while... how long? Til the polish is saturated and soft enough to swipe away! If you remove the cotton too soon, just add a new piece and let it sit.

That's it! Now you can wear whatever nail art goodies you like, without having to dread removal!
