Nail of the Day/ How to Remove Sparkles Easily

My nails were in desperate need of being redone, so here's what I did.
I'll also share an extremely useful tip for those who love that sparkly nail polish, but hate taking it off!
The polishes I used will be shown at the bottom.














You'll need:
2 colors of polish
Sparkle nail polish
Top/Base polish (optional)
Nail file/ buffer (optional)

Step 1:

















File and buff your nails!

Step 2:











Apply any sort of base coat.

Step 3:












With your primary color, paint all nails except for the ring finger.
You could also substitute your pinky or any other one.

Step 4:












With your secondary color, paint the finger you left blank.

Step 5:












With your sparkly polish, paint over the secondary color.

Step 6:












Apply a top coat and you're finished!

As for removing sparkly nail polish, which can be a pain, here's a tip!


(Shameful)















Wet a cotton ball or pad in nail polish remover
 














Wrap the nails in the cotton ball, then wrap tin foil around them.
Scrunch it up so it's nice and tight around your finger keeping the cotton ball in place.

















Wait about 5 minutes and slide everything off your finger.
The sparkles will come right off, without force! No. Joking. Around.

Polishes I used:




Claire's
Came in a pack of 4 "Precious Metals"



Revlon
Post Trauma Nail Treatment
(970)



Love and Beauty

Jacob
"Rouge Stiletto"









My clear coat wasn't very photogenic but it is Sally Hansen's, diamond strength, diamond shine, base & top coat. 

Thanks for reading! :)

  7. Ah the removing nail polish trick is awesome! I used to have a favourite nail look which consisted of like 10 layers of glitter nail polish and it always took, like an hour to get off.
