Lush Lacquer Birthday Cake = Glitterbomb!
This is what it looks like on the inside
Okay, you can see there is some liquid in around the little rubber fingers in the middle. You put you finger in the middle and soak it for a bit, rub your nail against the fingers for a bit and you'd be amazed how quickly glitter polish comes off! The instructions say you should soak for 1-2 mins....this is for artificial nails-removing polish or even the taking the actual nail off...so I didn't... I soaked for 10 seconds, rubbed for 10 seconds and then pulled my finger out and wiped off the big glitter particles. Rinsed and repeated if not all the glitter was off. I used this method to remove Lush Lacquer Birthday Cake today..as you can see from the top pic, its chock-a-block glitter polish. Can I say, this was SUPER frikken quick for me as opposed to the polish remover/makeup pad option. I think my entire nails were clean and ready to go in 2-3 mins max!
Now for the nitty gritty..how much does it cost? I paid $13.99 at Kmart. I did see this at Priceline and Target as well which was around the same price. Is it worth it? Heck yes! I used a whole 1 makeup remover pad as opposed to the 5+ I usually use and it was sooooo quick in comparison. You could probably use an orange stick to help scrape the glitter gently off instead. This is apparently good for shellac removal as well if you know anyone who shellacs (Profession strength remover it states on the front). I'm not sure how long this Nailene pot will last but I am sure I can refill it with acetone to do a modified foil acetone soak...just in a pot :)
Do you have any other foolproof methods for removing glitter, that is not time consuming?
