Frugal Nail Care

Being unemployed for over a year now, I have been cutting corners everywhere possible. One of those areas has been in my beauty routine.

No longer buying new nail polish colors every month, I now keep using the ones I have. Cotton balls for removing polish were just one more expense until I found a way to eliminate that expense as well.


Used dryer sheets work even better than cotton balls for removing nail polish, and they don't leave little fibers behind on your nails. Now I keep several folded up near my bottle of nail polish remover.

Another benefit: I never run out!

That is a new one! I'm a nail polish junkie but have stopped my constant buying too! A few tips for you. A small bottle of nail polish thinner (Sally's has if you have one nearby) will keep those polishes going for years. There are a few ladies on the beauty board I belong to that have 10+ year old polishes!


When drugstores have Sally Hansen's polishes on sale or BOGOF, try the Insta Nail dry in the red bottle. If you don't already use a instant nail dry this will be awesome for you! I really love another one, but it's 4.95 a bottle with my Sally's discount, the Sally Hansen stuff I got for 2 something on sale with a coupon, it dries your polish uber fast!
