Every girl has her beauty secrets and I'm actually willing to share them! Coming from a rich culture that has a big focus on beauty, I have quite a few tricks up my sleeve. Every Sunday I will share a beauty tip with my lovely readers!
Just before you go out, you realize that you still got some old nail polish on your nails. But, oh no! There's no nail polish remover! What to do, oh what to do?
Considering you're in this scenario: no panic, I have an easy solution for you!
A little announcement before I start writing. As you can see I changed the name of my Sunday posts to Sal's Sunday Solutions and full credit to this creatively found title goes to Narzipan! Thank you for coming up with this, as I love how it sounds! You should definitely give their versatile blog a visit as it's so inspirational! So again, thank you Narzipan!
Now on to the Sunday Solution of this week. So imagine you need to get rid of the nail polish on your nails and you're out of nail polish remover. What many girls do is file it off with a nail file. NO! PLEASE put down that nail file!!! You have no idea how bad you're about to damage and ruin your nails! The only thing you actually need to get the nail polish of your nails is.. nail polish! Nail polish? Yes, my friend. And I will explain step by step.
The painted nail you want to get un-painted. FYI: in this picture the nail polish looks perfect, but this also works with chipped nail polish (which was the whole point of this post, I know).
Apply another coat of nail polish over your nail. Just a royal amount, it doesn't have to be done neatly.
Quickly put a wad of cotton wool over the nail polish while it's still wet.
Whipe it off while the nail polish is still wet, et voilà! Nail polish, be gone!
And this is what you end up with!
- Work quickly, so the "second coat of nail polish" is still wet and so it will actually succeed to get your nail polish off
- In this post I worked with pink, but that's just to show the contrast between the colours. You can work with all colours, but best is to work with light/nude colours or a clear nail polish. That way the second colour won't leave any traces
- DO NOT USE RED to remove the nail polish, because you will get stains
- Unfortunately, this doesn't work for glitter nails
The blue colour I'm wearing is Catrice - 410 Pool Party At Night and the pink colour is Only You - 015 Pink Party!.
Yes, it's that easy, ladies! No more panic when you still have that hideously chipped nail polish on your nails and you don't have nail polish remover. And no more excuses for wearing chipped nails!
What do you do when you don't have any nail polish remover?
Do you take desperate measures or do you just walk with chipped nail polish?
