Glitter Polish is Back...

...did it ever really leave?
As the Holiday season approaches we are seeing more and more sparkle and shine in costmetics, particularly nail polish.

OPI has just launched its Muppets inspired collection with not a flat, matte colour to be seen!

As long as polish brands keep coming out with glitter nail polish, we'll keep hooking our look up with some sparkle. But while we love look of a gem-encrusted mani or pedi, getting that textured, gritty stuff off our nails is pain—literally. Thankfully, we bumped into celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann backstage at Narciso Rodriguez during Fashion Week (she custom blended a blue-gray polish for the show), and she gave us the inside scoop on de-glittering your nails in 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Saturate cotton with acetone or polish remover (a remover with acetone works best).
Step 2: Place the cotton on the nail and wrap each finger in aluminum foil. Press down.
Step 3: Leave on for 5 minutes.
Step 4: Pull the foil off and your glitter polish will glide off too
