It is death to my hands, but I put some nail polish remove in the cap (not pure acetone – just regular remover) and soak each nail for a minute or two, depending on the polish. I the use a cotton ball soaked in more remover to wipe the polish off.

Oh my goodness it’s so funny that this is today’s question! I recently had 1 coat of China Glaze’s Midnight Kiss and Cheers to You (one color on each hand) with 2 – 3 coats of Party Hearty on top. I used a Revlon base coat with Seche Vite top coat.

I was in church today and started like…easily peeling them off. I know that’s so bad, and I do NOT recommend that, but they literally just effortlessly peeled off–almost in entire chunks! No glitter was left behind.

So to go about a more orthodox way…I have no idea, LOL!

Sometimes when they peel off it’s not bad for your nails. You know the polish grips if you kind of see tiny layers of nail missing. But if it doesn’t seem to grip, I wouldn’t worry about it. Glitter polish doesn’t stay on me.

Ok, I used seche vite fast dry top coat and the result is great, shining and fast dry, first I thought no wonder so many youtube gurus like that’s why I got it. then after only a day of wear this, my nails just start to peel off. then I always wonder why people like seche vite so much. I got a tip for seche vite users, just don’t brush the edge of ur nails when you use seche vite, that way the nail polish doesn’t peel off as fast. I wonder if anyone have the same problem with seche vite.

I found using a tick base coat before applying glitter nail polish helps alot, and take a cotton ball that is full with nail polish remover, and put on top of my nails, then everything will be remove.

i usually will just use a really strong nail polish remover, but if the glitter is really finely ground you might have some glitter left on your nails fingers and near the cuticle. if that’s the case i’ll just take a shower or just soak my hands in water and buff afterwards.

Last week I had Sinful Colors White Polish, with Party Hearty on it. I put on 2base coats and then 3 coats of glitter. It chipped right off under warm water! Took me 3mins matbe and didn’t damage my nails at all. I got lucky. Sinful Colors was a perfect base.

soak the cotton ball in nail polish remover, place on top on nails and wrap it in foil, wit like 5 min more or less and the polish wipes right off

Saturate little cotton balls with nail polish remover, put it on each nail, and wrap your fingers (or toes) in foil. Leave it on for awhile, and then come back to easily wipe it off.

Foil method. I take cotton squares cut into little pieces soak them in pure acetone then place them on my nails, wrap my fingers in tin foil for 15 mins and they wipe right off with ease.

… Will you guys judge me if I say I bite it off? I only do this for glitters! Glitter polish sticks together so well that I can usually peel the whole nail’s worth off in one go if I use my teeth. And then I just use remover to get the stubborn sparklies off. This method takes WAY less time than removing entirely with polish remover, and I find it immensely satisfying; as an ex-nail biter, I get an odd pleasure out of edging it off around the cuticle with my teeth and then being able to peel the whole lot off!

usually cotton balls soaked in OPI expert touch, held for 2 seconds then wiped. repeat as many times as necessary
or if i’m in the shower, start to peel them lol!

haha i think this is partially why i don’t use glitter nail polishes… and maybe i just prefer cream or frosts more 😛

I soak cotton wool pads with my usual varnish remover (nothing fancy) and cover each nail with half a pad. I wrap each finger with aluminium foil and leave it for 5 – 10 mins. This stops the remover evaporating too quickly. After 5 – 10 minutes I remove the foil and cotton at the same time in one swipe. This removes the majority of the glitter without damaging my natural nails!

What a coincidence! I was trying to get off the Orly Party Hearty earlier today and it was a nightmare, even with pure acetone. I’ll definitely try the felt trick next time.

I use foil method with Zoya Remove+
I place damp cotton disk to a nail, then wrap it up with foil, wait for a minute and then glitter polish will be easily removed from the nail, in fact it will be alreadly removed mostly.
