If you’re a regular reader of Glamour, you already know our definitive trick for removing glitter and dark nail polish in one swipe. But sometimes you don’t have the patience to mess around with a bunch of cotton balls and baby hair elastics—and that’s when this new, even speedier trick will come in handy.

So, hopefully you have some type of exfoliating pads in your bathroom, yes? Well, next time you gotta remove some dark or glitter nail polish STAT, use one of your exfoliating pads on your face or body until the juice has mostly all soaked into your skin. Then soak the dry pad in nail polish remover and go to work. The pad’s quilt-like texture will grab the polish much more effectively than a cotton ball, and it won’t shed fibers that then stick annoyingly in the remaining polish and create even MORE work for you. We’ve used this trick a few times lately and am totally a convert.

That said, our original method for removing dark nail polish and glitter nail polish is still the preferred one if you’re lounging in front of the TV and have a bit more time, because it requires almost no elbow grease.

What trick do you use to make removing dark nail polish or glitter nail polish speedier and easier?
