A Mani-cure for Polish Problems

Lei ChicGlitter polish is all over the runways and looks gorgeous on your nails. But getting rid of the gritty stuff can be a pain. Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann has four simple steps to wiping your manicure clean, no scrubbing required.

1 - Saturate cotton with polish remover. One with acetone works best.

2 - Cover your nail with the cotton and wrap the entire tip in aluminum foil.

3 - Press down on it, then let it set for five minutes.

4 - Slide off the foil and cotton.  The glitter polish should come right off with it.

Lippmann also shared her tips for red carpet ready hands at any time. Click here for the insider secrets.
