Stop pick­ing at your nails

The Sun (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY -

FID­DLING with your fin­ger­nails and pick­ing at old nail var­nish can make nails look ugly and un­kempt, but how do you re­move the layer of var­nish if you don’t have any nail pol­ish re­mover?

Sim­ply ap­ply a layer of fresh pol­ish, let it soak in with­out dry­ing, and then use a pa­per towel to gen­tly wipe away the old and new var­nish in one fell swoop, ad­vises Dirk Taeu­ber, ed­i­tor of Beauty Fo­rum Nail­pro mag­a­zine.

This se­cret trick works best with clear nail var­nish that doesn’t dry too quickly.

Taeu­ber says the big­gest mis­take for a woman who is out of var­nish re­mover is to scratch at the old layer of var­nish with a sharp blade such as that of a pair of nail scis­sors. A layer of nail could be scraped off, and you might even slip and hurt the sur­round­ing skin. – dpa

Clear nail pol­ish can also be used as a pol­ish re­mover.
