Nail Polish Remover Pots seem to be very in right now – nearly every beauty brand seems to be releasing one. I really wanted to give one a go but I’m a bit fussy about my nail polish remover so I didn’t want to spend money on a product that could potentially be more gimmicky than effective, contain a remover that mightn’t be nice on my skin and cost more than double my usual remover. I’d heard about people DIYing their own so I thought I’d give it a go. This mini project is so simple, quick, cheap and the end result actually works and is pretty fun to use!
- Nail Polish Remover
- Jar (I recycled a Vegemite Jar)
- Cut your sponge in half – you will only need to use one half – then cut the half you’re using in half again.
- Put the first piece of sponge in the jar.
- Pour nail polish remover over the sponge until it’s quite soaked.
- Put the second piece of sponge in the jar.
- Pour some more nail polish remover over the sponges until they’re covered.
- Close the jar and shake it around a little bit.
- Put your finger into the pot.
- Wiggle your finger around.
- Remove your finger – your nail polish should now be gone!
Every so often you will need to add more nail polish remover when the sponge is dry. When the sponge is too dirty to use then simply replace it with a new sponge.
I absolutely loved this DIY! The end product actually turned out better than I thought it would and it cost me only $2.50 – $2 for the sponge and $0.50 worth of nail polish remover, plus I still have half a sponge left to use when this one gets too dirty.
