Is there a special one that helps/works better to get the glitter nail polish off?
Thank you :)

You want to use pure acetone.  Also use the foil method to remove glitter.  Soak a cotton ball or pad in remover,  place on nail, wrap in foil and wait like 5 minutes.  Glitter will slide right off.

Yep, good ole tin foil.  Acetone is nail polish remover.  They make two kinds, non acetone & pure acetone.  Pure acetone is harsher but it gets the job done.  I just moisterize the hell out my hands.

You can buy it in the store.  I buy mine at Sally's cause I get the big ole jug since I use so much of it.  Non acetone remover will work but you will have to let it sit longer on the nail.  Your welcome!!  Nails are my hobby.

DH has a huge thing of acetone which is why I asked,
He uses it for coins & stuff, LOL
I was using the regular nail polish for my toes & not a lot of luck
But now I will soak the cotton ball with his stuff, wrap in foli & wait 5 minutes.
Again really appreciate your help :)

Not a problem, I am happy to help.  I buy the pink remover at Sally's.  It has a few extras beside just acetone but it works great.  Here is a link http://www.sallybeauty.com/Acetone-Professional-Polish-Remover/BTYSEC13,default,pd.html?cgid=Nail05

Thanks for the link,
have it saved & will order some this weekend.
I love the glitter/sparkley polish.
the salon people do a terrible job of getting it off so I thought I would do it myself, LOL
Thanks again :)

acitone remover for acrylics, its harsh on the nail though, so I always use non acitone.

If you have a piece of white felt around, it is the best thing ever for removing glitter!
