Searching around for a bottle of nail polish remover for worn out or chipped nail polish? This won’t do you any good. You may find one that has expired or evaporated and the worst of it is you may have searched for one that will cause yellow stains on your nails.

Anyway most polish remover has only 2 main active ingredients and these are acetone and ethyl acetate. Maybe there are some other ingredients available at home which you can use as a good fingernail polish remover without spending a single cent in your pocket. One advantage of this is that it is a natural way of treating your nails naturally. Read and follow the procedure below that can guide you in making a homemade fingernail polish remover.

Tip # 1: Prepare the materials you need.

You must have perfume, moisturizers and cotton swabs or cotton balls. Each of these materials have roles to play when making a nail polish remover.

Tip # 2: Tips in using the perfume.

Since most perfumes contain ethyl acetate which is another active ingredient of all polish removers, it is also proven to be effective in removing finger nail polish. Just put some of your perfume in a cotton swab and apply it onto your nails.

Tip # 3: Tips in using another nail polish

Try applying a new coat of nail paint and use a cotton ball to wipe off the nail polish at once. This prompt removal will cause the elimination of the dry polish but chances are some residual polish marks remain on the cuticles.

Tip # 4: Tips in using toothpaste, hairspray and wet wipe

It is also proven that the use of toothpaste and hairspray can help you get rid of that old nail polish. Wet wipes can do the same thing. Dab any of these ingredients into a cotton ball and rub it onto your nails to wipe off the nail polish.

Tip # 5: Tips in using paint thinner.

A paint thinner is said to help remove nail polish on fingernails. Try applying some paint thinner on your nails and the polish will vanish soon.

Tip # 6: Tips in using a baby jar with lid, a liquid thinner and sponge.

Put the sponge inside the jar and then cut a hole at the middle of the sponge enough to fit your finger. Pour the thinner into the jar and close tightly with its cap. Just stick your finger into the sponge moving around a little to remove the polish off your nails. Place the lid of the jar tightly after each use to prevent the evaporation of the thinner.

Wash your hands using of course nothing else but mild soap and water once you are done with any of the above procedures. You need to apply moisturizer also to your hands to counteract the harsh chemicals. When you have considered all these tips together, you can make sure your homemade fingernail polish remover works.

Alcohol, & perfume kind of work but you have to put lots on the cotton ball and keep working m on you nails. Baby wipes didn’t work don’t know if it’s because it’s not soggy enough.
