Removing glitter...

the easy way...

I hope you are all doing this to remove your glittery nails!!!

Step 1:  Gather up straight up Acetone or Zoya Remove + or homemade Zoya Remove + (pure acetone, glycerin + a couple splashes of water to emulsify), 10 cottonballs and a roll of aluminum foil.

Step 2:  Soak a cottonball in the above formulation of choice.  I recommend the acetone + glycerin because it is moisturizing...

Step 3:  Place cottonball directly on top of nail and wrap strips of aluminum foil over entire tip of finger.

Step 4:  Wait 5 minutes or more depending on layers of polish. 

Step 5:  Wiggle off aluminum/cottonball wraps.

Step 6:  Touch up as needed.

And voila!  You have successfully removed all or most traces of glitter!  Wash hands, follow up with cuticle oil and hand lotion and you are good to go!

If you think this takes too long, think again.  With the soaking method, it is less damaging to your nails, you will use less cotton balls along with less remover.

A time and money saver is ultra savvy folks!
