Don’t you hate it when the lid gets stuck on your favorite bottle of polish? I’ve heard all kinds of crazy theories from people on how to unstick them (note: banging the lid on the corner of your table does NOT work), but I finally found one solution that actually does what it promises. I wanted to share this simple trick with you all so you’ll never have to throw away one of your beloved polishes again.
How to Unstick a Nail Polish Lid
What you need:
Rubber band (optional)
1.) Fill your cup with hot water
2.) Holding your nail polish upside down, submerge the handle of the bottle into the hot water
3.) Hold for 3-5 minutes (You can watch something on TV or read something to pass the time)
4.) Remove and unscrew – the hot water loosens the hardened nail polish so it should come off easily!
5.) If you are having trouble gripping the top, simply wrap a rubber band around it for a better grip
It’s important to hold the nail polish in the cup so that the actual polish isn’t submerged– after all, hot temperatures can change the consistency of your polish and make it sticky! (That’s why you should try storing yours in the fridge :)
