A smudged fresh coat
Smudged nail polish is one of the most common problems, instead of crying over it and reaching for the remover, here’s what you can do. Gently push the polish back and apply a fresh coat of colour over it. If you got it done at the salon and don’t have the colour with you simply apply a generous swipe of clear polish over it.
Chipped nail polish is an ugly sight. Ideally you should apply a fresh coat after 2-3 days to avoid it. However, there’s another trick to tackle this problem. Simply swipe a layer of clear glitter polish over it and make it look like you’re fresh out of a manicure session.
Nail polish that won’t dry quickly
You’re getting late for an event or meeting, but your nail paint is taking forever to dry? Maybe you’ve applied a layer too heavy. But fret not, here’s what you can do. Take a bowl of ice-cold water and dip your fingertips in it. Believe it or not this will fasten the process.
Dried nail paint
Your favourite nail colour bottle dried a little too soon? Put a few drops of acetone to it and if you can’t find acetone add some drops of nail polish remover as it contains acetone too. Shake the bottle and use it again!
Removing glitter polish
Getting rid of nail paint with glitter is not an easy task, especially when its been on your nails for a while. Here’s what you can do, take a generous amount of remover on a cotton ball and place it on your tips, now wrap them with tin foil and let it stay for 5 minutes and then remove. All traces of glitter polish will be off!
