To the polish-free crowd, nail enthusiasts are assumed to be greedy hoarders who blow disposable income on bottles of lacquer (most of which are in the exact same shade of goth-purple or apple-red). But, as any nail-painter will tell you, a polish addiction is so not the reason our bathroom cupboards can house nothing but our stash. It’s that every bottle we purchase can only be used to the halfway point until it becomes too thick, un-spreadable and therefore unusable. And because we spend anywhere $8 to $38 a pop, we’re understandably reluctant to chuck a bottle that’s half full.
So, what happens to our polish that speeds it into early retirement? Well, every swipe we apply lets air into the bottle, causing it to get dense and apply chunky to our nails. But, there are a few ways to revive remaining polish to make it just as good as it was during the honeymoon phase.
Ahead, five tips for getting the most out of your lacquer so you can say goodbye to clumpy, time-wasting manicures, and hello to saving a little more pocket money.
