One thing that I consider valuable as a nail polish lover is a quick, easy way to remove a very glittery polish. I'm not talking about what kind of acetone or cotton balls to use, or that foil method I've blogged about, but a simple and fun method that uses neither! Becacine demonstrates her surprising discovery in her tutorial below.
Yellow Stopper (quick glitter nail polish removal)
I'd like to share a happy mistake that happened to me while I was searching for the perfect base coat. Sally Beauty Supply carries a product called Yellow Stopper by American Classics. It has UV protection and looks really pretty on it's own when there is no time for a manicure. It casts a beautiful shade of super light purple over your nails so they look naturally "pumped up" white, similar to a French manicure.
The happy mistake occurred when I attempted to do a manicure over it. This is the best product if you want to have a 2 or 3 day manicure of heavy glitter but don't want to use the acetone/foil method of removal. As you can see in the second picture, the entire manicure peels right off! The more coats you apply under the mani, the more quickly it wants to peel.
What a great find for those of us who don't want the same nails for more than a couple of days. Just be very careful when you peel the entire manicure off - don't rush it. If the polish doesn't want to come off, it's not ready yet and you will need the foil method. If you rush it, your nails may peel with the entire manicure so please be very careful.

Cirque Tibetan Nights & Lynnderella When The Moon Was A Star REMOVAL after 3 days. One nail popped off during the day and the rest were gently coerced into coming off later that night.
