Your nail polish is too thick, you have trouble applying it effectively, the texture is not optimal? To top it off, this happens right when you’re manicuring with your favorite polish. Don’t panic, there is a solution to make your nail polish more liquid and fluid. Let’s go!
Dilute nail polish with nail polish remover
This method is very well known and even controversial. Nail art purists see it as a direct attack on the quality of a manicure… In reality, diluting too dense varnish with nail polish remover is a good idea, provided you respect the process.
First, use an acetone-free nail polish remover. This is the sine qua non for diluting without damaging your nail polish! When you have this remover at hand, slip a maximum of 3 drops into the pot of varnish. Shake and mix. Then, test the varnish application.
Soften varnish with hot water
First, it involves using boiling water. To do this, take a saucepan, fill it very little (about 2cm high) and bring to the boil. Then place the pot of varnish in question in the saucepan, turning off the heat. Wait 10-15 seconds and remove the glaze from the pan. Be careful that the nail polish pot is well closed during the operation. Then check: the varnish must have thinned!
Use nail polish thinner
This will be useful if the problem often occurs on your hardware. The principle is identical to the solvent method, except that the diluting product has been created especially for the occasion. Practical and efficient.
Finally, keep in mind that prevention is the most effective way to maintain the perfect texture of your nail polish! We strongly advise you to regularly shake the cans of varnish that have already been opened to prevent them from hardening. By preventing the varnish from stagnating, it does not harden. Keep your nail polishes in a place that is neither too hot nor too cool… Finally, close them well!
