Dark nail colours (read red) look absolutely stunning when paired with a black dress. The struggle arises after a few days when it’s time to remove it, we didn’t ask for those ugly stains, now did we? It’s messy and makes you think twice before buying colours like navy blue, burgundy and more.

We know you love dark nail colours as much as we do and this staining part is not going to stop us from splurging on our favourite shades, right? Therefore we found this amazing trick that will ensure your dark nail paint comes off easily and does not leave any stain behind.

 

You will need:

You will need:

  • Petroleum jelly or cuticle oil
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton ball

Step 1: Apply a generous layer of petroleum jelly or cuticle oil around each nail.

Step 2: Tear off small pieces of cotton from the ball, just big enough to cover each nail.

Step 3: Saturate these pieces in nail polish remover and place them over each nail for about two minutes.

Step 4: Take the remnants of the cotton ball and press down at the base of your nail and slide it, from the cuticle towards the tip.

Step 5: The polish will come off in an instant and there will be no stains at all!

 

Why this works

Why this works

The petroleum jelly or cuticle oil acts as a barrier between the dark nail polish and your skin, thereby preventing any sort of staining.
