NOTD (Go me a hypocrite!)

I know I am one, lol! Okay, so it wasn't very long ago that I declared my hatred of all polishes glittery. But I had a good reason for it, or so I thought! It had nothing to do with the looks of glittery np's, I never had an issue with that. It was the removal of the np afterwards that I hated.  Now, I know I'm not the only woman out there who has an aversion to removing glittery nail polish, but I might very well be the first to be a convert to this method of removal. I found out that removing this stuff isn't anywhere near as hard as you think once you know how to do it correctly! This is what I've been told to do:
1) Soak a piece of cotton wool in nail polish remover
2) put on fingernail
3) Wrap fingernail/cotton wool with tin foil, and leave on for a minute or so.

When you take the foil and cotton wool off, supposedly all of the polish goes with it. Sounds easy, right? Well, I haven't tested this method myself yet, but I did indulge in applying my first glittery polish to my nails. Rest assured, you'll be the first to know if this works or not!

The polish I chose is absolutely beautiful. It's by Nina Ultra Pro, and it's called Purple X-ing. It's a gorgeous purple glitter with bits of tiny little holographic flecks throughout. I applied two coats and a top coat called Diamond Dry. I recommend this top coat if you come across it, it dries to a lovely sheen super quick. I've always been a Seche Vite and Out The Door girl myself, but I think I'm going to add this one to my on-hand top coat stash.

Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think of the nail polish, and the top coat too if you have it.


  1. Another good idea is to use felt instead of cotton. Or use Zoya Remive + :).

  2. I am definitly going to try it!

  3. I'll definitely give it a go with felt instead. I've seen some of the ladies on Tpf commenting on using felt instead of cotton wool.
