Plastic Wrap Makes Your Polish Remover Go Further

Although I'm definitely a crowd pleaser for the quirky tips and products I've got on hand, I snatched this trick from an unsuspecting pal before a night out. After waiting through her beautification process, our exit was delayed when she decided her peeling polish was more tacky than trendy.

As I watched some TV, I caught her removing nail polish with a cotton ball held in plastic wrap. Assuming it had something to do with the scent of the product, I watched as she made it through the whole hand with just one swab and probably could have started on the left. She laughed when she caught me staring and said that wrapping with plastic slows the remover's evaporation process — and keeps the lifted polish on the swab, not on the hand that swiped it. Sorry, friend, I'm stealing this tip from you!

another thing which you can use cling film for is for post pedicure feet! after you've painted them- drop a bit of olive oil on each nail and wrap them up with this product.... you can then move around the house in them or go home from the salon, take off the wrap and they won't have smudged at all :)

I had to read it twice to really understand. Unfortunately, I'm a cotton pad user.

you wrap the cotton ball in plastic wrap, then apply the remove to that as you would usually? i'm confused as well.
