What you’ll need for this DIY natural nail polish remover:
- Cotton pads
Step 1: Squeeze Them Good
Apparently, the chemicals in nail polishes don’t hold up well against acidic components. This is why the two main ingredients in this mixture both have acidic qualities.
Start off by squeezing lemons to get the juice. Use a juicer to get every single drop. Put the lemon juice in a bowl.
If you don’t have lemons readily available, you can use oranges or any citrus food as a substitute.
Step 2: Double Shot Of Acid
Now that you have your lemon juice, add in an equal amount of vinegar to enhance the acid better. Mix them all up.
Step 3: Soak Them Well
Get a couple of cotton pads or balls and soak that in the natural nail polish remover. In the meantime, you should soak your hands and nails in warm water for about 10 to 15 minutes to soften the polish. If you wish, you can soak your fingers in up to 30 minutes.
Step 4: Rub It Off
Wrap your nails in the solution soaked cotton pads or balls for 20-30 seconds. Don’t worry about the smell. While you may have to be wary of the acidic vinegar smell, the sweet scent of the lemon will mellow it down.
After leaving it on for about half a minute, start rubbing the polish off using your soaked cotton. After a few rubs, you’ll notice your nails getting clearer.
Later on, wipe on some cuticle oil to strengthen your nails. Added tip, try to give your nails a few weeks to breathe before trying out another nail art.
