Don’t worry if you’ve run out of nail polish, there is a solution to every problem and the first solution for this is pretty juicy!

Lemon is packed with alpha-hydroxy acid, which helps break down any paint residues on the nail while also brightening and soften them.

What you need:

  • Organic lemon juice
  • Warm soapy water
  • Cotton balls

How to make it:

  • Mix equal parts organic lemon juice with soap and water
  • Soak your nails in warm water for up to 10 minutes
  • Dip a cotton ball in the mixture and start rubbing off the paint
  • Use hand cream/moisturizer for your nails afterward

2- Vinegar and orange juice

Vinegar’s acidic power can break down the nail polish and remove it entirely. But, since vinegar is such a harsh ingredient, adding lemon to the mixture will make it more gentle on your skin.

What you need:

  • Vinegar 
  • Orange juice
  • Cotton pad

How to make it:

  • Thoroughly mix an equal amount of vinegar and orange juice
  • Soak your nails in warm water for 10 minutes (it speeds up the process)
  • Dip a cotton pad in the mixture and gently wipe your nails
  • Apply nail oil for moisturization after removing the nail paint

3- Hydrogen peroxide and hot water

Hydrogen peroxide is added to cosmetic products for its brightening effects. For nails, it works like magic! Your varnish will vanish without a trace!

What you need:

  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Hot water

How to make it:

  • Mix 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide with ¼ cup of hot water
  • Soak your fingers in the solution (or use a cotton ball)
  • Massage the polish off your nails

Note: Hydrogen peroxide can temporarily bleach the skin and cause dryness (even if diluted), so you may want to use cotton balls to wipe the varnish off, instead of soaking your fingers in the solution. Make sure to use moisturizer.

4- Nail polish

Yup, you can use nail polish to remove nail polish! 

What you need:

  • Nail polish
  • Cotton pad

How to make it:

  • Paint a fresh coat of nail polish (preferably one that doesn’t dry quickly) 
  • Use a cotton pad or paper towel to wipe off your nails
  • Use more till you get it off completely
