The next time you remove nail polish, go easy on yourself — literally. Use a non-acetone nail polish, which is gentler on your digits, and use a cotton ball instead of a tissue. (The balls soak up remover better and are softer on your nails.) Then, instead of rubbing back and forth on your nails, take a soaked ball and press it on the nail for a few seconds. Then, wipe the color. Quicker and easier, and good for your nails as well.
