When it comes to removing your nail polish if its speed you’re looking for then using an acetone based remover will be your best friend! A non-acetone based remover is better for your nails and the environment but it’s completely up to you which one you use…both remove nail polish.

As mentioned in a previous blog, shaping your nails is key so to fasten this process; you could get a crystal nail file. Do not be tempted to, however, use a course nail file because it may be too rough on the tips of your nail so make sure they have a fine ‘grit’.

If you keep moisturising your cuticles with either oil or nail butter, it’ll be easier to clean your cuticles after. The Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover would be the quickest remover, as it only needs 15 seconds to melt away unwanted cuticle growth. You can then use a tool to push them back and get rid of the excess.

A good hack to avoid messy nail polish application around the sides, you can either put Vaseline or glue around the nails so the polish doesn’t go on the skin.

To ensure your nails dry properly, plan carefully! Don’t rush to paint your nails… make sure you have everything besides you and you won’t have to use your hands straight afterward! To help your polish dry quickly, you can either apply a quick drying topcoat or a quick dry solution on top like the OPI Drip Dry Lacquer Drying Drops.
