A quick and easy tip I learned from my manicurist is to add olive oil to your acetone or acetone-free nail polish remover to nourish your nails.
Nail polish remover can strip your nails of all moisture, and if you’ve ever used acetone polish remover you will know how dry it makes your nails, cuticles, and fingers. It even leaves dry, white blotches on your skin. The problem is, acetone is almost necessary especially when trying to remove tough polish like glitter or sparkle polishes as well as acrylic nails.
By adding olive oil you’re replenishing your nails with the vitamins and moisture that the remover is well, removing. I’m a fan of olive oil for natural beauty remedies, so when my manicurist applied the acetone+olive oil mixture on my nails at the salon, I was seriously impressed that I tried it as soon as I got home with my regular nail polish remover. I instantly noticed a difference on my toes when I removed my polish. They weren’t dry and white, and gross.
Simply add about 2 tablespoons to your polish remover, shake well, and enjoy. I recommend adding about 1/4 cup to acetone since it’s much harsher on nails.
