Home made French Manicure, baby!
Anyways, I posted up a question on Facebook earlier today asking about how to remove nail polish without using nail polish remover.
But, there was no takers on that question. :/
But, because I was desperate I googled it and tried the following options.
Alcohol : Doesn't work. Being at home, I obviously have got a supply of alcohol lying about, I took a bottle of Chivas Regal and tried it.
Turpentine : Doesn't work. Well, I freaked out once my hands felt funkydoodle.
White spirit : Worked. Only I also freaked out, and stopped after half a nail.
(Both the ideas above caused a minor heart attack and left me fumbling for nail creme afterwards. Don't try it at home, unless you are a dude)
Fingers : Worked. The safer option. Just took painstakingly long.
Painting another layer on top then rubbing it off : Worked, but stupid idea, end up making more mess than when I began.
So, eventually I ransacked the house and found drops of leftover nail polish remover and used that instead.
There lesson for the day : Nail polish is to be removed by nail polish remover. Period.
