Removing Glitter Nail Polish Just Got a Little Easier

Removing Glitter Nail Polish Just Got a Little Easier(Source: OPI, Instagram/Julep)We'd be lying if we said we didn't secretly wish our weekly manicure looked like a mini party on our tips every second of every day. Little glitter specks reflecting light like a disco ball—you can't tell us that wouldn't be amazing. Unfortunately, the only way to achieve such a look is through glitter nail polish, which in the nail world, can be the worst to remove. But those glitter dreams of ours might now have a happier, easier-to-remove ending, thanks to a spate of new glitter-specific nail polish removers.

OPI, Julep and Cutex have all formulated removers strong enough to take off stubborn glitter, each in its own way. OPI takes the base coat route with its new Glitter Off Peelable Base Coat ($8). To use, apply the base coat as you would any normal base coat: a thin layer followed by your fave polish. The idea here is that when it's time to remove your color, you can simply push back the polish and peel it off thanks to a unique formula in the base.

First, you take a polish-remover pad, which contains the typical acetone as well as the not-so-typical aloe vera, and place one pad on each finger. Next, you cover each pad with one of the rounded nail caps that comes with the kit. (Picture these as little mittens for your finger nails.) Leave the nails covered with the pad and cap for three to five minutes, then gently squeeze and pull off both to remove the polish and glitter.

This stuff is just extra strong—in fact, it's strong enough to remove glitter as well as gel. Simply dab the remover on a cotton swab and remove your mani as normal.
