Vinegar and lemon juice

Vinegar and lemon juice are both acidic so they help in dissolving the nail enamel with them once you rub the cotton ball on your nails. To make this, you need equal amounts of vinegar and lemon in a small bowl. Mix these together and dip a cotton ball into it. Post this, place the cotton ball on your nail for about 5 seconds and rub it on. Repeat this again in order to ensure that all the nail polish is off the nails.

Toothpaste is one of the most effective ways to remove nail varnish if you’ve emptied your nail polish remover bottle up. This is because much like removers, toothpastes also contain ethyl acetate that is known to break down the nail polish easily. Take some amount of toothpaste and rub using the cotton ball immediately. The polish will come out with the toothpaste. Cheap and effective, this one has got to be tried out.
