Removing Glitter and Gel Manis - I've tried this method and it absolutely works!!! You just soak the cotton ball with ACETONE nail polish remover, place on nail, wrap with foil, and go about your business for 5-10 minutes. Gel and glitter comes right off. Give your nails a quick swipe with a soaked cotton ball to remove any leftovers. This is the best way to remove glitter AND gel manicures!!!
