Can't get that favorite bottle of nail polish open?



Nail Polish in water
 
If you get out your favorite bottle of nail polish and realize you can't get the bottle open here is a little tip that might just help you out!

Find a small glass and fill it with hot water,(only put the water high enough to cover the polish top) put your bottle of polish in the hot water upside down, wait a few minutes then try and open it. Sometimes if it's really bad you may need to add more hot water and wait a few more minutes.
Another good thing you can do is to try and remember is to always wipe off the top of your bottles with a tissue soaked with remover after each use.

Easier way to remove your polish when doing a Manicure at Home

Tip for removing your nail polish

If it seems like it takes you forever to get your old nail polish off then this may help!
BEFORE YOU BEGAN MAKE SURE TO COVER THE SURFACE WHERE YOU WORK ;-)
This is only recommended to do once a week. You really shouldn't be changing your polish more than once a week because the remover or acetone can be very drying to your nails as well as your cuticles.

Things you will need: One Small bottle of 100% pure acetone and 100% cotton balls ( 100% cotton will be more absorbent and it will hold the acetone on your nail ) Sally Beauty Supply usually has small bottles of acetone available and it should be near the polish remover ) they probably also have the 100% cotton balls.

Do one hand at a time: Wet a cotton ball with the acetone and lay it on the pinky nail. ( leave it there)

Go to the next nail and do the same, until you get all the nails on one hand covered. ( at this point you should have all five nails covered with cotton balls soaked with acetone).

Now go back to the pinky nail and with a little pressure, pull the cotton forward, the polish should be dissolved enough that it should come off really easy. Then do the same with the other hand.

This also helps when wearing dark color nail polish, the cotton will absorb most of the nail color so just pull it off and wet a new cotton ball to remove what is left on the nail. Your skin around your nail won't get nearly as stained.
Hope you enjoyed the tip and hope it makes your next manicure go a lot quicker for you.

Oh and don't forget to leave me a comment or question below. You know I like to talk ;-)

Manicure tip for doing your nails at home!


Toe Separator
Are you saying why in the world would I post a picture of a toe separator when I am supposed to be talking about a manicure.
 
Here is a manicure tip that some of you may not have heard of and it worked great in the Salon for the women that tended to smudge their nail polish before it dried.

If you find yourself smudging your polish before you get them dry why not give it a try!
Use it between your fingers just like you would between your toes.

Manicures for Women over 50. Did I just say that?

Anyway it inspired me to draw a new picture! Because it doesn't matter if you are 50 or 15 there is nothing to make a woman feel pretier and younger than to be all dressed up and have a well done manicure and pedicure!
