DIY Beauty Fridays: Homemade Nail Polish Remover

Oh no!  You've used the last of your nail polish remover and you're MUCH to lazy to run to the drugstore.   How do you remove that pesky black or bright red polish?

Your problems are completely solved if you have either vinegar, rubbing alcohol or lemons in your house.  All of these items are acidic enough to loosen your polish.  Because it will take quite a bit longer to soften the polish, I highly recommend soaking your fingers (or toes) in warm, soapy water for about 5 minutes prior to using either of these items.  Once soaked, pat dry your nails and soak vinegar, rubbing alcohol or lemon juice on a cotton pad and get removing!

Trust me, you'll wonder why you pay money for nail polish remover at all!

 Happy polishing ladies!
