Polish on Skin? No Problem.

Call me butterfingers. Earlier today, while getting dressed, I actually split a pair of my favorite jeans in the crotch. A squirt of tinted moisturizer on the front of my ruffled plaid blouse, and I was off to a great start.

Recently, I found the perfect shade of coral polish in Revlon's Nail Enamel in Red Hot Tamale ($5), but unfortunately, the color also spilled from toenails to skin, all due to my klutzy ways.

Of course, you can always dunk a Q-tip in polish remover to remove the unwanted polish, but my neighbor came to the rescue with this ingenious tip. After the polish has set on your skin, simply take an emery board ($1.60) and gently sand off the spillage until those smudges magically disappear. Why didn't I think of that?
