How to Remove Nail Polish

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to remove nail polish using baking soda and salt:

  1. Gather the materials: You will need a small bowl, baking soda, table salt, an old toothbrush, a cotton ball or pad, nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol, and moisturizer.
  2. Create a paste: In the small bowl, mix equal parts baking soda and table salt. Add a few drops of water to make a thick paste. Stir well until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Apply the paste: Use the old toothbrush to apply the paste to your nails, focusing on the areas with nail polish. Gently scrub the paste onto your nails, using circular motions. Make sure to cover all the polish with the paste.
  4. Let it sit: Allow the paste to sit on your nails for about 5 minutes. This will give the baking soda and salt mixture time to break down the nail polish.
  5. Scrub and rinse: After the 5 minutes are up, use the toothbrush to scrub your nails again, paying attention to the areas with nail polish. Rinse your nails with warm water to remove the paste.
  6. Remove remaining polish: If there’s still some nail polish left, dip a cotton ball or pad into nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol. Gently rub the cotton ball over your nails to remove any residue. Be careful not to rub too hard or for too long, as it may damage your nails.
  7. Moisturize: After removing the nail polish, wash your hands with soap and water. Apply a moisturizer or cuticle oil to restore moisture to your nails and prevent them from drying out.

That’s it! Obviously in this case after I removed the nail polish I painted my nails and scrubbed my feet – but this is a great hack if you don’t have nail polish remover and it actually works.
