There are a lot of problems that happen to be associated with the application of nail paint. It's not as easy as people might think. I am a regular and I feel you. The pain in the gut when that nail paint you perfected gets smudged, or when your hand does that reflex to fix your hair and your brain forgets that you had "the nail paint on"- that's when you regret every life decision.
Apologies guys, the exaggeration comes with the pain, it is probably unconscious when it's about nailpaints. To reduce that kind of suffering for my girlfriends out there, here is every possible nail polish problem and their very effective solutions.
You've tried really hard for that not to happen. The harder you try, the more the chances are that it will definitely happen. Well, I am not being the bad guy here, the Universe conspires it this way. Anyway, if it does happen and you notice it at the earliest, it can be fixed. lick the tip of your finger and gently drag your half dry nail polish to cover the smudge. It is a quick-fix. Works every time for me!
You know it is bound to come out. If you want to go with nail polish and make it want to last a week you can do one thing. You can make out the time and apply top coat every 3 days. Or else, you can apply a glitter nail polish as the top coat. It will make your nail paint stay.
To remove that extra polish from the cuticles or somewhere else on your finger, if you're messy at it- use cotton buds. Dip the cotton bud in a nail paint remover and make that extra nail polish go for the perfect nails.
When it has been on the shelf for a lot of time unused, the brushes become tougher to handle. In that case, you take some cotton and dip it in the nail polish remover. Gently clean the opening of the bottle and add some remover into th bottle. Set it aside for some time. Voila! Your nailpaint is now as good as new!
In case you have buttery fingers, this hack will definitely come in handy. When you spot the stain, bring a plastic knife to scrape it off the floor, or table surface. If the nail polish is stubborn, bring some towels dipped in hot water to loosen it up. Don't scrape it too hard. And if it still isn't done use your remover to clean it thoroughly.
Glitter nail polish doesn't come out easy. And as much as we love to apply, it is almost frustrating when it won't come out. So here is the trick. Split a cotton ball in half and apply a generous amount of remover to it. Let the cotton rest on your finger nails for 30 seconds. And there you go!
