On today’s Tips and Tricks, I wanted to share a method of removing gel nail polish and glitter art from our nails.
Have you seen this?
I saw a tutorial of this method once and thought it was a joke. Then, one of my nieces was walking around with this exact look. I asked her what she was trying to accomplish and she asked me to come with her to her room. This is a 12 year old teaching a 30 something year old a trick that maybe I should have been passing on to her? In any case, she was a great teacher!
She explained to me that she had used gel nail polish and then threw some glitter on top with a clear white top coat. She admitted it was layered and really hard to take off if she tried my “old method” of taking of nail polish OR she could do this…
This is so easy by the way!
You need the nail polish remover, a cotton ball or cotton pas, and, of course, aluminum foil.
When you are ready, you apply enough nail polish to the cotton product for the nail. Do not overdo it and have a really soaked cotton product, just put enough that it will cover the whole nail. You leave it on top of your nail and then comes the aluminum foil!
The aluminum foil wraps around your fingers, without moving the cotton product from on top of your nails.
Once you are done, you wait for five minutes and then… you are magician! Because when you pull off that aluminum foil with the cotton swab in it, everything is gone!
Don’t believe me? Go try it!! This is easy, economical, and effective!
Keep making that beautiful art everyone!♡
