Sparkling nails are fun and they add oomph to your outfit. You can add energy to your office attire with a subtle yet sparkling nail polish, or dazzle the crowds at an elegant evening soirée with sparkling nail polish that matches your evening gown or you can go wild with shiny, shimmering disco nail polish for that evening of dancing and partying at a night club. Whatever the occasion, sparkling nail polish can transform your outfit.

The only hitch with wearing sparkling nail polish – how to remove sparkle nail polish without destroying your nails or getting glitter everywhere. Sparkling nail polish can be worse than quick drying super glue. It just refuses to come off easily. Swearing away from wearing sparkling nail polish is not an option. So, how can you easily remove sparkle nail polish without ruining your nails or going to a salon to prevent damage?

Most fashionistas agree that glitter nail polish unlike regular polish requires a stronger solvent. A regular nail polish remover does not suffice; you need an acetone nail polish remover to get the job done.

Here’s how you can revel in the beauty of wearing sparkling nail polish without worrying about how difficult it is to get glitter nail polish off. We give you 3 surefire methods to easily remove sparkle nail polish:

The Foil Approach
This is a tried and trusted approach to remove sparkle nail polish easily. All you need are 10 1-inch strips of foil (aluminum or tin), 10 cotton balls and nail polish remover (acetone).

Soak the cotton ball with the nail polish remover, firmly place the cotton ball on your nail and wrap the foil around your finger to hold the cotton ball in place. Leave on for 2-5 minutes for sparkle free nails.

The Soaking Method
The Soaking Method is similar to the above method and equally effective. For this method, you will require 10 cotton balls, nail polish remover (acetone) and 10 small elastic bands.

Soak the cotton ball with the nail polish remover, place it on your nail with the elastic band and leave on for couple of minutes. Your nails should be free of the glitter.

The Peel-off Technique
This is a pre-polish technique that allows you to peel off the glitter nail polish like a sticker. Before painting your nails with glitter nail polish, find an empty nail polish bottle, regular school glue and water. Fill the nail polish bottle half way with glue, add a little water and shake well. Paint your nails with this mixture to form a base coat. Once it dries completely, paint your nail with whichever sparkly nail polish catches your fancy. When you are ready to remove the sparkle nail polish, simply nudge the edge to peel off the polish. Use acetone to remove glitter, if any.

We hope these tips to easily remove glitter nail polish come in handy. Good luck and go wild with stunning sparking nails.
