How to remove Nail Varnish

Good Morning !!
You are probably going to be thinking , does she really think we are that stupid. No i dont , however i do know a lot of people take their polish of wrongly and buy bad nail varnish removers. This article is aimed to everyone but especially beginners who are maybe just starting now to paint their nails themselves. I hope you enjoy my guide , i would love to hear your views and do make sure you enter my Stella Makeup Set competition which is open to everyone worldwide. 

  You will need :
Nail Varnish remover 
Vitamin Nail Polish 
Cotton Wool 

Before i get in to the step by step instructions , i will be mentioning brands that work for me and should work for you too. This is the way i take my nail polish off. 

Step 1 : Get your nail varnish remover , in my case its Cien Nail Polish Remover without Acetone, which by the way is the supermarkets brand Lidl. Really love this stuff because it has a magical pump which you basically place your cotton wool pad on and press, so much easier no more spilling. Get your cotton wool pads any will do , im using the Hansaplast brand. 

Step 2: Apply some nail varnish remover on the cotton wool pad and then place it on your nail and hold for 5 seconds and firmly wipe away. Most people tend to rub up and down on their nail, if you hold and then wipe away most of the nail polish comes off. The rub up and down method rubs it in your nail resulting in staining. 

Step 3: All your nails should be cleaned, may i add my nails arent yellow they are stained from a really bad nail polish. Go and wash your hands very well and dispose of any cotton pads that were used to get rid of the strong smell.

Step 4 : Use a good vitamin enriched nail polish to help maintain them healthy. In this case i am using OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener which is fantastic and makes your nails all shiny. Thats it your finished!!

I hope you enjoyed this post , let me know what nail polish remover do you use and what vitamin nail polish ?! 
Thanks for reading!!!
