Beauty Question: How to remove nail polish stains

Posted Oct 17 2008 6:10pm

Nails in bright, beguiling jeweled tones of burgundy, blood, and licorice are oh-so-appealing, but maddening to remove from the nail once you decide you’re suddenly having a pale pink moment.  (I am usually left with red-tinged hands that make me look like I’d spend the afternoon murdering somebody.)  I’ve used lemon juice in the past to get rid of the nasty tinge, but  Glamour  has another answer: use whitening toothpaste.  “‘Just buff them, brush it on and rinse to lighten,’ says celebrity manicurist  Jin Soon Choi.”  And, of course, help prevent stains from starting by always using a base coat under polish.
