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!
