Quick & Easy Polish Removal Method - Tutorial

I can't take credit for this removal method, I'm not sure who came up with it! I can say it is the quickest, easiest method I have used and want to share it with you!

To Start: You just need polish remover, a cotton ball, and I like to use a little dish to hold the remover (you can use the cap if you don't have anything).

First comes the cotton ball!
unroll a cotton ball, use your fingers or scissors and split it in half length-wise, then rip the strips into small nail-sized pieces as demonstrated below...

I get about 10 pieces per strip (20 total for 1 cotton ball)

Now it's time to remove that polish! Click on the pictures to enlarge them!
Pour a small amount of remover in a small dish or the lid.
Dip one piece of cotton at a time, just the tip (it'll travel up the rest of the piece) into the remover.
Place the wet piece onto nail, and continue with each nail.
I do one hand at a time, just a little easier to work with.

After about 20-30 seconds, push (not hard) on the cotton and slide it off the nail!
If there are bits of polish left, use your extra cotton pieces to finish cleaning up.
This took me less than 1 cotton ball, and very little remover, to remove all polish from 10 fingers!

Now GO! Try it! And tell me if you love it!!! 


  1. I do the same,but also wrap it in tin foil.. Works faster that way :-)

    Great blog, now following :-)

    1. Thanks! I have heard of the foil, but haven't tried it yet.
