Dear Beauty Banter,
I love glitter nail polish but its impossible to remove. Is there a trick to getting it off?
Jamie from Florida
The best way to take glitter nail polish off is with acetone nail polish remover. Soak a non-lint cotton swab in remover and squeeze out the excess. Once soaked, let the cotton sit on the nail plate for a couple of seconds. In a circular motion, wipe down away from the skin. If you put too much nail polish remover you will create a mess. Use more than one cotton ball to make sure you get the polish completely off. When you’re done, wash your hands to remove all residue. Apply oil to the cuticles and moisturizer to your hands.
