I really (really) love glitter nails but I hate (loath and detest) the removal process. After many years of avoiding glitter nail polish, I found out that using craft glue as a base coat makes removing glitter polish super easy.
I emptied out a nail polish bottle and added glue into it, and then I would apply the glue like a normal base coat.
Apply vaseline around your fingernails before applying your nail polish to make removing your mistakes easily, all you need to do to wipe off the Vaseline. Besides it is super softening and moisturizing for your cuticles.
*p.s. When you're done with the nail polish, apply Vaseline around the opening of the bottle before closing it to prevent the nail polish from drying it.
Once you've painted your nails, dip them in cold water and it'll dry faster.
This is a struggle we all face – nail polish drying out within months of purchase. Actually, there's a reason why it dries out, and it's because you're letting air into the bottle whenever you leave the bottle open while doing your nails, which then thickens the polish.
Clean your nail polish brush with acetone until the clumps of polish falls off. Once the brush is clean, screw the cap back on, and the remaining acetone-filled brush will thin out the polish in the bottle.
*p.s. If the polish is a little too thick, place the nail polish bottle in a cup of hot water, then clean your brush as usual and add a little acetone into the bottle.
I hate wasting cotton pads to remove my nails so I found this super easy hack. First, I took a clean, new dish washing sponge, rolled and squeezed it into a jar that I got from Daiso (you can use a pill bottle). Then I poured in nail polish remover into the jar until it's three-quarter full and it's ready for you to dip your finger to wiggle the nail polish away.
