How to make a homemade nail polish remover
Last week we advised you to use nail polish remover without acetone to avoid damaging your nails and we showed you a list of recommended nail polish remover brands. In today’s article, we propose a very interesting alternative that will consist of making your own homemade nail polish remover.
Do not be scared, we’ll explain everything steps by step.
In addition, this option is very easy and economical, but above all, it is more comfortable and original than using a regular nail polish remover. Do you want to know how to do it?
What we are going to need …
- A jar or jar with a lid. The ideal size is in which the facial creams come, about 50ml.
- Nail polish remover.
- A sponge.
- 5 minutes of our time.
First place the lid of the boat on the sponge. This will help us to take the exact measurement of the sponge so that it enters the boat. So we cut the sponge a little wider than the edges of the lid, so it is more compact inside the jar. The next step will be to introduce this sponge into the boat.
With the help of scissors, we give two small cuts in the center of the sponge. This will be the slit through which we will introduce our nail later.
Next, pour a small amount of nail polish remover liquid over the sponge and close the can with the lid. Already done!
As a suggestion, we suggest you create a personalized boat. Imagine painting it with your personal touch or decorating it with a bow around it.
Take a look at the following video to see if you have any questions about how to make a nail polish remover at home.
When we want to remove the polish from our nails, we simply have to introduce it into the sponge and turn the pot to both sides with the other hand repeatedly until our nail is completely clean.
It is important to keep your homemade nail polish remover closed as long as you do not use it, so it will not dry out.
For express girls who are always in a hurry, how would you like to make two homemade nail polish removers and use them simultaneously in one hand? Surely we would save in time.
And we already have a travel size nail polish remover made by ourselves. In addition, to our liking and avoiding the uncomfortable formats of some nail polish remover without dispenser that ends up being wasted.

Homemade alternatives to nail polish remover
Some everyday products that we usually have at home use the same chemicals like nail polish remover. It is the case of many perfumes, of the lacquer or the deodorant. Simply we would have to impregnate cotton with these liquids and to rub on the enamel.
If we are looking for a solution that is even more homemade and more ecological, we can use a mixture of vinegar with lemon and apply with cotton on the nails. Vinegar is used as a solvent and lemon also helps to whiten nails. Probably we have to insist more to completely eliminate the nail polish than if we did it with a commercial nail polish remover.
Now that we know how to make a homemade nail polish remover and what homemade alternatives to use to leave our nails untouched, it’s time to start doing the manicure!
