  • Place the soaked cotton ball on your nails and secure it with the aluminium nail cover or with the thin elastic band, whichever suits you. If you are using a rubber band or an elastic band, make sure it is tied just firmly, not too tight or loose.
  • Let the cotton ball rest on the nails for a few minutes; remember they have to remove the stubborn glitters completely so give them that time. The glitters are made of some large particles that literally get stuck to the nails and do take more time to come off so let them sit for 3-4 minutes.
