Neeyuh's Tips: Nail polish removal

Hey everyone!!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Since I got really into painting my nails on the regular last year I'm always on the lookout for new or easier ways to do things that make the process smoother for me. One of my biggest issues is removing dark polish or glitter, it would get everywhere and make a huge mess. So, one day I was on youtube and came across this video from Glintzy, Click HERE to watch. In the video she mentions that felt makes it much easier to remove all kinds of polish. You can find it at craft stores and even walmart for about $.30-$.40 a sheet, you then cut them into squares or rectangles in whatever size you prefer. This is how I cut mine ( I got about 30 squares per sheet):

I can usually use one for all 10 nails but one thing I will warn you about is that it does make a little bit of a mess because it's removing so quickly so you'll most likely have to use one more to clean up the excess.

Another thing that helps out is the type of polish remover you use, this is what I use:

I know that acetone isn't the best for your nails but I've been using it forever and haven't had any problems. It's the best remover in my opinion and I won't ever use anything else!

Do you do something similar to this for removing your nail polish?

I actually use make-up wipes!

I know that sounds weird, but whenever I'm done with my make-up wipe, I set it on the edge of my trash can to dry out, and use it with nail polish remover. Since it's quilted it works great at removing everything, and it doesn't leave behind any fluff or lint. Plush, its reusing!

I was actually going to post it on my blog, but my sister was like, "eww that's dirty."

Have you every tried the individual packets of nail polish remover? It's usually felt most of the time ^^
