Luckily, there are some ways to remove your nail polish quickly and easily. Here are three simple ways to remove your nail polish in no time flat!
Tools You Will Need to Remove Nail Polish
The tools you will need are fairly simple. For your sake, keep a Q-tip or cotton ball nearby when you are removing nails polish. You will also need a good quality remover, such as Acetone that is free of alcohol. Removing polish can be time-consuming if done incorrectly. So do yourself a favor and choose wisely when shopping for remover.
Acetone And Cotton Balls
Squeeze out a few drops of nail polish remover onto a clean cotton ball. Then, place it over your nail and press down firmly, trying not to get any polish remover on your skin. This can take anywhere from two minutes (for a thin layer of polish) to 10 minutes (for thick coats). To remove glitter polish, simply dip your finger in some nail paint remover for a minute or so – again making sure none of it gets on your skin.
Acetone And A Cotton Pad
If you’re looking for a fast, simple nails polish remover, acetone is your friend. Acetone dissolves most types of polish in about 10 seconds. There are several ways to use it
Using a Q-Tip to Remove Nail Polish
If you’re in a hurry, but you have an easy-to-use Q-tip around, you can use that as your makeshift polish remover. All you have to do is dip it into a bottle of nail polish remover or peroxide, then rub it along your nails until they are clean. If there’s more polish than Q-tip will clean up at once, just rewet your Q-tip with some nail polish remover or peroxide and continue.
