Alternative ways to remove nail polish (test)

So I ran out of nail polish remover the other day, but my nail polish way looking pretty rough after a week of having it on my nails.


I began to think about what else I could use to get it off. Picking it off is horrible for your nails so I chose against that. I looked up three different ways to take off nail polish and found a few that I could try.

  • Hair Spray
  • Body Spray/ Purfume
  • Fresh Nail Polish

First I tried the hair spray. I sprayed some on my nail, and wiped it off with a cotton pad. I was hopeful for this one but it did absolutely nothing.


So I moved on to the Body Spray. Again I did the same thing, and Nothing….


The last one I wasn’t to hopeful for, it seemed silly to put more nail polish on when I was trying to take it off. But then I learned that nail polish only hardens because a certain chemical evaporates out of it. So when you introduce that chemical again, it becomes soft again. So it worked! I was so happy to get it off. It did take a few applications of the polish and then wiping it off.


But after a few coats of polish and some patience it all came off nicely and I’m super happy with it. So if you’re ever low on nail polish remover, just apply some more nail polish and it’ll come off in no time.
