We all know the most common way to remove nail polish: grab a drugstore remover filled with toxic chemicals you can’t pronounce, pour it onto a cotton ball, and rub your nail repeatedly. But when you finish, your skin feels it will crack if you bend your finger ever so slightly!
That isn’t all. The smell permeates your nose and makes your eyes water. And to top it all off, you may not even get all the polish off! Hours later, you find that old color hidden in the corners of your nails, or even smeared on your skin.
Don’t worry, because we found a few ways to make the process more comfortable. Here are safer, more effective methods to remove nail polish.
Use A Remover That’s Easy On Your Nails
A perfect example is our nail polish remover. It is non-toxic and contains a blend of herbs, essential oils, and soybeans to successfully hydrate your skin. No more dry hands and burning nose hairs!
Wrap Each Finger In A Piece Of Cotton To Soak
Coat a cotton ball with polish remover and wrap it around each finger. Allow your nails to soak in the remover for less rubbing and scrubbing.
Use A Bowl To Soak Your Nails
Soak your nails in a bowl. Put a cotton ball at the bottom, and set your nails on top. You can scrub here, if you’d like to remove the polish quicker.
Choose Polishes Carefully!
Ethically-sourced nail polishes protect your skin, nails, the environment, and are less harsh when it’s time for removal.
Lastly, make sure to hydrate and moisturize your hands daily so they can better withstand the occasional polish removal process. We hope these tips help you feel more confident about your self-care manicure sessions. Let us know in the comments if these tips work for you!
