How To Revive Gluggy Old Nail Polish!

I love nail polish and I have a few favourites that have been sitting in my drawer for quite a while.

Because I love the shades and they have been discontinued, I can’t get new ones, but I just don’t have the heart to throw them out.

As he genetic lottery was rather kind when it came to handing out nails, I was rather lucky. Mine grow fast and very rarely break, so I like to keep them painted.


This beautiful colour is a Revlon limited edition. It is one of my favourite ‘go-to’ summer colours as it goes with everything you wear and clashes with nothing.

Ages ago I remember reading a tip about how to get rid of those little crusty bits that develop on the rim of your polish and often end up in it!

Run some hot water from the tap, and place the nail polish bottle under the running water for about 1 minute.

Give the bottle a quick shake, and just like magic, the polish is thinned down and evenly mixed, just like brand new.

What I really liked was that it went on nice and evenly and dried very quickly between coats.

So don’t throw out your old polish, a little hot water and it is just like new.
