Today I have my 3rd post and its a tutorial/DIY post.
So I recently swatched Rain City Lacquer (if you want to see the swatches click here) and the base I used for Space Needle Starlight: Sinful Colors Opening Night, stained my nails really bad, as you can see here:
|Yeah sucks ): Cause its such a pretty color, but oh well.|
So I decided to do a tutorial on how to remove these stains. First off, this is the list of things you're gonna need:
•Little measuring cups & a Bowl
•A stick, or something to mix( I just used the tip of my nail art brush, it won't really damage it, just to be safe use an orange stick)
So, first make sure that your nails are clean and you have removed as much polish as you can. Then you want to measure 2 1/2 Tablespoons of baking soda in your measuring spoon:
And 1 tablespoon of Hydrogen Peroxide:
And then take your orange stick and mix them together, I ended up adding a bit more hydrogen peroxide because it was too thick. It should have a paste like substance.
Then take your Q-tips and gently add the paste to each nail on one hand, make sure to get under your nails if you have long nails.
Eventually you'll have your whole hand done, you can leave the paste on for about 3 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
|I probably put too much, but i just wanted to get everything off|
After you rinse, repeat on your other hand, and you're all done! Here are my end results:
They're still yellow because i paint my nails too much lol, but its ok, because I almost always have my nails painted. As you can see, it did remove most of it, i buffed my nails slightly and it removed everything completely. Hopefully it works for you guys as well, let me know if it works for you as well!
Oh and remember to apply lotion after because the hydrogen peroxide drys out your hands a bit!
