*and around the web...this is one I Googled tips for, but GoogleandPinbusters doesn't sound as cool.
This one was sparked because a male friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) got his toenails painted. I tried to help him get it off, but there was no polish remover in his house so we got creative.
FYI: These ideas were all found on google in various locations--we just wrote them down and most were found on sites like ask.com and sites where I could not find authentic/original credit.
Here are our results.
letting it soak a bit didn't get anything off.
-This one seemed a little more promising. Used a
cotton ball just like normal remover. Nope again.
-I really had faith in this one. Used a cotton ball.
I wouldn't call this one totally busted. However,
it took far too much effort for barely any to come
off--not worth it. Plus there was a strong
warning about how drying it could be, so I
wouldn't risk it--especially on finger nails.
-Yes, it smelled awful. Unsurprisingly, it didn't
work. After the failed attempt we went back to
see what may have gone wrong...this method
was designed for use on wooden surfaces! haha
5. Nail Polish Remover.
-Finally! Something that worked...a day later.
As much as we worry about chemicals around, sometimes nothing works better than the product that was made for it.
It's official, this "pin" is *busted.*
