Have you ever had trouble removing stubborn nail polish? *cough* glitter nail polish *cough* Are you tired of spending way too much time scrubbing? Tried the foil technique? That was too time consuming, still left nail polish on the nail, and you weren't able to move around, you say? Well, I think I may have a solution for you!
I've been getting tons of questions about how I remove my nail polish. If you've been following my posts for a long time now, you may remember that back in March, I posted a D.I.Y. post of my nail polish removal routine. Click here to view the old post.
What you'll need:
1.) Felt - I found mine at Michael's for $.29ea
(preferably white, you don't want the risk of other colors transferring onto your nails/skin)
I've numbered each picture to demonstrate:
Note: You do not have to follow this procedure, you can cut them at any time or at any size when you need them; however, it may be beneficial to do so, I'll explain down below!
HOW YOU'VE JUST SAVED MONEY:
Pretty easy right? You're basically cutting each piece in half every time. If you cut the pieces exactly as the procedure, you should have exactly 64 pieces! Let's do some math and see how much your saving!
1 bag of Cotton Balls(100pieces)= $1.00-$2.00
1 sheet of Felt(64 pieces)= $.29
Even if you purchased two sheets of felt,(64+64=128) you would still be saving money and you would have even more pieces than cotton balls!
2 sheets of felt(128 pieces)= $.60
Yes, it can be a little time consuming, but, in the long run, you're saving money and cutting you nail polish removal time in half! If you have kids,(w/ supervision, of course,) this is a great way to help teach them about fractions!
Personally, I never liked using cotton balls. They soak up too much nail polish remover to the center of the cotton ball, whereas these pads soak up exactly where you pour your nail polish remover; essentially saving you nail polish remover as well. It's a win, win! ;)
I never use cotton balls anymore, this is a faster alternative to removing your nail polish, glitter or not! ;)
As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
Will you bee trying this out? Do you have any other alternatives other than cotton balls, the foil technique and/or felt? What are your thoughts?! I'd love to know down below! =)
