    Hey sorry so late!! The brand of acetone nail polish remover I use is Onyx Professionals %100 pure acetone. It works great for removing glitter polish but it can be drying so i use cuticle oil or olive oil to combat the dryness after each use. Then u can paint your nails as usual. They also have a regular polish remover and it works AMAZING for removing regular nail polish. Plus its less drying. It’s the purple one. Hope this helps <3 <3

    A EASY way to get glitter off everytime in min’s! First, put on a good cuticle oil (around the cuticle & sides of nail), then SOAK a cotton round or cotton ball in remover (doesn’t have to be pure acetone it dries your nails & cuticles! Place the soaked round on nail wrapping it around nail, then get small pieces of foil, wrap around the cotton round, wait approx. 2 min., remove foil, take cotton round pressing on fingernail side to side or up & down (whatever u want), & all is easily removed!:)

    No, not at all. I use acetone as my staple nail polish remover it cuts right through the tuffest polish and it’s quick. It has no effect on my nail health there long and healthy but it might be a bit drying for the surrounding cuticle.

    Take your polish remover and soak a small cotton ball, place it on your nail and wrap with a square of foil (large enough to wrap completed around our finger. Wait about 5 minutes and remove. It is the same process used to remove gel polish. Hope that helps! 😎

    To remove glitter get ten cotton pads or balls for each finger put nail polish remover on each and place on nail then wrap fingers in foil and leave it for 60 seconds to 2 mins *depends on glitter*
