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 my new, even speedier trick will come in handy.

So. I suspect 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. I've used this trick a few times lately and am totally a convert.

That said, my 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.
