The Foil Method

Tough Glitter polish on your nails? Never fear, the foil method is here!

You'll need small squares of felt, cotton pads or an unrolled cotton ball cut in small squares, foil cut into strips to fit your fingertips or the pre-made foil/cotton wraps and a bottle of pure acetone remover. I like to decant into a pump, its so much less risky of spilling!
Since visuals are great, I've made a photo tutorial, please comment if you have questions!

If you have cuticle oil, now's the time to slather that on.

Soak the lil pads in acetone and apply to nail.

Cover/wrap with foil and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes (time depends on what you're removing). Check one nail to see if it's ready to remove. If not, I check about every minute or so after that. You'll know its ready because the polish and all the glitter will slide off like butter.

Apply a little pressure against the nail while sliding the foil and felt/cotton off and tada! Most if not all the glitter should be gone.
