Since all the good things have been said, now let’s get down to the muddles. Like they say, we are spoilt for choice when we have to choose from an array of nail lacquers. Gel, quick dry, matte finish, glossy, metallic, shimmer, whatever you fancy, but it all boils down to one simple problem: how to store them the right way. Nail lacquers have a personality of their own. And an appropriate method is required to store, apply, and maintain them, irrespective of whether they are in the bottles or applied on your nails.
Nail polishes are known to have a shelf life of a maximum of two years. However, it’s you who could very well either extend or shorten this longevity based on how you store them. We did some homework to help our women store their favorite nail colors, and have come up with the following favorable do’s and forbidden don’ts.
1. Don’t Use A Nail Polish Remover To Thin Down Your Nail Lacquer
Acetone is normally used in the formulation of a nail polish remover (1). It functions as a solvent and breaks down the personality of your nail lacquer, thereby ruining it.
Solution: Do Opt For A Thinner Instead
Make use of a nail polish thinner. It helps to get the consistency of your thickened favorite nail polish back to the desired, apt consistency required for the application.
Use just 2-3 drops. Add them inside the nail polish bottle, rub the bottle between your palms and voilà, your favorite nail color is ready to be painted on your nails.
