How to remove Caviar and Glitter nail polish

Friday 21 December 2012
As you may be starting to guess I love nail polish. Anything sparkly, embellished, I just love it.
What I don’t love is trying to remove it. Seriously, glitter nail polish is the devil. I can scrub away as much as I want, but that polish just DOES. NOT. WANT. TO. BUDGE
After a while, it starts to very slowly chip, and look scruffy, but not not enough to completely come off.

However there is an answer. Read on to find the solution to your glittery problems.

You will need:
  • Nail Varnish Remover
  • Cotton wool pads
  • Tin foil
First, soak your cotton wool pads in nail varnish remover, and press to your finger.

Wrap the pad around, and secure by wrapping the whole thing in tin foil
Do this to all finger, and leave for AT LEAST 5 minutes. And I mean a proper 5 minutes. If you can manage longer, do it, although I will admit I get bored.

After 5 minutes, unbind yourself and reveal.
As you can see after 5 minutes, the majority of all the polish has come off, however the longer you leave it the better. But this is the impressive result after only 5 minutes. Plus the last little bits actually flicked right off.
