You Will Need
- A window or fan
- Paper towels
- Nail polish remover
- A sink or basin
- A towel
- Hand moisturizer
- Cotton balls
- Cotton swabs
Make sure the area where you're working is properly ventilated—open a window or turn on a fan. Beauty always comes at a cost, but breathing in fumes is too high a price.
Protect the surface on which you're going to work with a few paper towels.
Soak up remover
Soak a cotton ball or a paper towel folded into a small square with the remover.
Place the remover-soaked ball or square on your nail, and press firmly for several seconds. Once the remover has soaked in, slide the ball or square down your nail to easily sweep the polish off without scrubbing.
Apply to cuticles
If you have stubborn polish on or around your cuticles, use a cotton swab soaked in remover to gently work the polish off.
Once your nails are polish-free, use soap and water to wash the chemicals from your hands.
Smooth on a hand cream to moisturize your hands, and wave hello to your au natural nails.
