Tip Tuesday: Keeping Lids From Sticking

Tip: to keep your nail polish lid from sticking apply some vaseline to the inner lid of the bottle!Don’t you hate it when your running out the door and at last minute you decide to check you’re your toes (because your wearing flip flops or heels with peep holes) and EEEeeeek your polish looks pitiful!!????!!! Sadly, I admit this happens more than I would like it to. You make a dash to your bathroom for a quick application of polish and then you run into another wall….your nail polish seems to be sealed with super glue. A mean prank huh!?!

Sometimes I have been lucky and with a few seconds under hot water I can unscrew the lid. However I usually bite down with my teeth and attempt to use my personal jaws of life to free the lid. The only thing that ever happens in that scenario is that my jaw gets soar and I end up grinding my teeth somehow….ugh worst.sound.ever.

To prevent this situation unscrew your nail polish lid, take a Q-Tip and apply some Vaseline around the outer rim of the polish jar. Taaa Daaa!

So if you ever find yourself rushing to give your toes a quick touch up make sure you have prepped your polish with this tip so you can twist off your lid with ease.
