How to Remove Nail Polish Without Nail Polish Remover

Three ways to remove your nail polish without actual nail polish remover.

– Vinegar and Lemon Juice

Materials are 2–4 tablespoons of vinegar, juice of one lemon, cotton balls, shallow bowl. Combine the vinegar and lemon in a shallow bowl and let soak for 10 to 20 minutes. Use the cotton ball immediately afterward to work off leftover polish.

– Hydrogen Peroxide + Hot Water

PS: Be sure to dilute per the directions below since Hydrogen Peroxide can be a tad strong.

A mild antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide is another option for removing your nail polish in a pinch. Plus, it’s one of those random products that nearly everyone has stored away somewhere at home. By naturally releasing oxygen, it helps to remove the product.

Materials are hydrogen peroxide, hot water, shallow bowl, nail file. Mix two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part hot water. Try a 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide with a 1/4 cup hot water to start. Then, soak your fingers in the solution while massaging the polish off with your hands. Use a nail file to file off any remaining polish.

– Hair Spray

Materials are hair spray and cotton balls. Take your cotton ball and place it in direct contact with the nozzle of your hair spray. Then, simply swipe the cotton ball over your nails and repeat as needed. Wash hands thoroughly when all polish has been removed, and give your hands with a generous dose of hand cream.
