Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)
Can you thin nail polish with nail polish remover?

What happens if I mix nail polish and water?
They don’t mix readily, just like oil (another organic) and water don’t mix. When you drop the nail polish into the water, it won’t mix because of the above. Additionally, because the organics tend to have low surface tensions (don’t clump together), the polish spreads out over the surface of the water.
What happens when nail polish is mixed with water?
Nail varnish does not dissolve in water because the water particles are not attracted to the nail varnish particles. They remain clumped together and we can still see the nail varnish in the water. We say that the nail varnish is insoluble in water and has formed a suspension.
