Rarely do I actually paint my fingernails. What’s even worse is that I love having my toenails painted, but once they are painted I hate taking the time to remove the polish when it starts chipping. It’s such a pain that I usually just let it chip off until eventually it’s all gone. I know some of you are dying thinking about how tacky that is, but it’s the ugly truth. I just don’t have a lot of free time to sit down and try to scrub nail polish off my toes! And then I saw this great idea in Real Simple Magazine and I just had to give it a try!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Nail polish remover
Small piece of felt
Here is what my toenails looked like after rubbing it for a couple of minutes with a cotton ball and nail polish remover!
After getting really irritated, and remembering why I never paint my toenails, I got up and grabbed some felt and the page I’d torn out of the Real Simple Magazine.
Here’s what to do:
1. Soak the felt in the nail polish remover.
2. Press the soaked felt piece up against each nail for 20-30 seconds.
3. Using the felt, wipe the polish off.
The tidbit from the magazine was a trick for getting off glitter nail polish but I thought, why not try it on regular nail polish and see if it works! It worked so well! I’m so glad I tried it and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to using a cotton ball again!
Now my toes are happy pink, but who knows, maybe this weekend I’ll paint them sexy red!
Have a great week everyone!
