DIY Nail Polish Remover Sponge Jar

DIY Nail Polish Remover Sponge Jar

The Debrief: Sometimes you just don’t want to waste all your cotton pads. Also, you’re lazy.

Cotton pads - you seem to run through them faster than you binge watched Making A Murderer. It feels like such a waste to use another when you currently have 7 unused sponges under your sink from the pack of 8 you bought at the pound shop last year. But how are you supposed to remove your nail polish quickly and efficiently without wasting your precious unbleached Muji cotton pads? Do I have a solution for you! 

All you need is an empty container (I used a pill bottle), some nail polish remover, scissors and a sponge. The best part is that it takes all of a minute to construct and it’s reusable. 

Cut the hard part off the sponge.

Roll it up and place it inside the container.

Gradually pour the nail polish remover into the pill bottle.

Put your nail in, wiggle it a bit, and voila!

Easiest, most non-wasteful method of removing nail polish ever.
