Latest Polish Haul

I keep telling myself I can't do this anymore. I don't need any more polish, right? It's so easy to say and so hard to follow through with when these lovely polishes are looking at me, especially when I'm at CVS or Target waiting for a prescription and I can't just leave the store. Oh well. That's me. It's what I do. I might as well embrace it, and then... blog about it.

Removing Glitter Polish

I will admit, even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE glitter polish, I have had such a hell of a time removing it that I have honestly considered giving it up. It is just such a pain in the ass. In fact I have passed up a few glittery polishes I knew I would like just thinking about when the time would come to take them off.

I was at Ulta to buy some new polish remover and I found this Elegant Touch nail polish and artificial nail remover. It's acetone but it seems to work better on glitters than other acetone removers I have used before.
The directions say to soak nails in a bowl, but I don't do that. I still use this on a cotton square. But even with this I was still having the problem with the cotton squares shredding up  from the glitter. Then I was at CVS and found these:
They are just like the regular cosmetic squares but they have little dots on them that are for exfoliating. They work so much better than the regular cotton squares. I still wouldn't call it fun to remove glitter polish but the combination of these two items makes it a  LOT easier. How do you remove your glitter polish?
