Over time, the nail polish fades and breaks off at the free edge of the nail plate. To apply a new layer, the old varnish must be removed, but special means for this are not always at hand.
It is necessary
- - nail polish remover;
- - cotton pads;
- - organic solvent:
- - alcohol;
- - manicure file;
- - colorless nail polish;
- - sunflower oil;
- - sparkling water;
- - table vinegar;
- - lemon acid.
The easiest way to remove polish from your nails is to use liquids designed for this purpose. Moisten a cotton pad with liquid, press it against the nail plate and hold for 5-10 seconds. Then run the disc several times in the direction from the edge of the nail to its root. After this manipulation, the varnish remained on the disc, and the nail was cleaned. Repeat the procedure for each nail.
If you don't have nail polish remover at hand, then use any organic solvent: gasoline, acetone, white spirit, turpentine. After applying them, the nails will not suffer, but they may turn slightly yellow. After the solvent, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and cream.
You can try removing the nail polish with rubbing alcohol or any solution that contains rubbing alcohol, such as perfume. In this case, the cotton pad should be kept on the nail longer.
The varnish is removed from the nails with a new coat of varnish. Take any nail polish, preferably colorless, and apply it in one or two coats. Wait a minute, and then use a clean cotton pad to remove the colorless varnish with the remnants of the old one.
Pour regular 9% table vinegar or any soda water into a bowl. Dip your fingertips in a bowl for 10 minutes. Then rinse your hands under running water and remove the nail polish with cotton wool.
Apply sunflower oil to your nails for 15-20 minutes. It will dissolve the varnish and you can easily wipe it off.
Steam your hands in a hot tub, and then grind off the varnish from the nail plate with a manicure file. If you don't have a file at hand, try to scrape off the varnish with any sharp object or nail of your other hand.
Add a small amount of water to the citric acid powder and wipe off the varnish with the resulting solution. Lemon juice can be used instead of acid.
Hand wash several items in soapy water. The varnish in the water will begin to swell and separate from the nails during rubbing.
