Glitter Removal - Foil Method

Happy almost St. Patrick's Day! :) My birthday is tomorrow and since I won't be around to post... I have 3 posts for you tonight! The first one is something I've gotten a lot of questions about from non-polish-aholics, so I figured I would make a post about it. I will be removing Model's Own Emerald City which if you don't know is a super chunky green glitter.

Before
First, cut out 10 squares of foil, big enough to go around your your finger and cover the tip of it completely.

 Next, soak (I mean, SOAK) a cotton ball and put it on your nail.

 Wrap the foil around the nail and then over the top of it.

Alien Fingers!
 Leave the foil/remover on your nail for 5 or 10 minutes depending on how thick and chunky the polish is. I left it on for 10 minutes on this particular mani. After 10 minutes, remove the foil with a little pressure and a twisting motion to help the polish come off faster and easier.... and voila!

After
Hope you guys learned something if you didn't already know this method and if you did, thanks for sticking around until the end! I have a couple more posts for tonight, stick around!

Thanks for reading, until next time!
