Easy Method To Remove Nail Polish.

Only recently have I started used this technique, and I've only started using it ever since I purchased my Wilko's own brand nail polish remover- I want to tell you now- it's not a very good remover when you're just rubbing it on your nail with a cotton ball or tissue.
However, even with the worst nail polish removers.. you can get rid of your polish super easily!

All you need is:
  • Nail polish remover (I used Wilko's own brand)
  • Foil
  • Cotton Wool Balls

 3 simple items you need.

 Step One : Rip a cotton wool ball into 2, drip some nail polish remover on the cotton wool ball- make sure they're not overly soaked.. and then cover your nail with it.

 Step 2 : Rip of little pieces of foil and wrap the cotton balls so they're secure and won't fall off.

 Step 3 : Leave them on your nails for at least 5 minutes.
When you're removing the foil+cotton combo- just SLIDE it off.
The picture above just shows what your nails and the cotton ball will look like- pretty cool how it keeps the print in tact! :D

Hope this helped. ♥

  2. *how was the skin around the nails afterwards? I was always afraid to try this technique because my hands are very, very dry, and i'm kinda scared i'll make them worse...

  3. well my hands aren't too dry- but i think you should give it a try on one of your nails first to see how they react? and straight after you use this technique- get some cuticle oil- or even extra virgin olive oil, or a good thick moisturiser on it to help with the dryness of your hands! :)
