Beyonce beauty hack: How to remove glitter nail polish

Some of the best beauty tricks we know have been passed down from our mums. Like, opening your mouth helps you apply mascara better and apricot shimmer eyeshadow is best left in the 1980s. But imagine if your mother was one of the most photographed women in the world. She’d probably have some next level tips to pass down, non?

Not that we’re jealous or anything but Beyonce has just schooled Blue Ivy in the best way to remove glitter nail polish. So at two-and-a-half years old, Blue Ivy already knows more than we do. Great.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy's July 4th matching manicure. Adorable.

To remove your stubborn, able-to-survive-a-nuclear-winter glitter nail polish, soak a cotton pad in nail polish remover, place over the nail and wrap each fingertip in foil. Let it do its magic for 10-15 minutes then slide the foils off  and boom! glitter shrapnel-free nails.

Thanks Beyonce.

Useful? Do you have a different nail polish removal hack to share? (Besides picking it off for weeks.)
