How Do You Liquify Clumpy Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

How to do it: Using the eyedropper, add a drop or two of acetone to the polish. Screw the cap back on and roll (don’t shake) the bottle between your hands for about a minute. Then, prepare to be amazed as the lacquer returns to a nice and smooth state. Magic.

Here’s what you need to do: use an eyedropper to pour 2-3 drops of thinner into the nail polish. Then, screw the cap back on and roll the bottle between the palms of your hands to mix the two together. Test the consistency – if it flows smoothly from the brush, it is ready to use.

Generally Why is my nail polish so chunky? Exposure to air is one of the reasons nail polish starts to dry out and thicken. Always store your nail polish in a cool place, like a linen closet. Though convenient, the bathroom isn’t the best place to store nail polish because things start heating up when you shower or use a blow dryer.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

How can I thin my nail polish without thinner?

Hot water. If rubbing the polish between your hands doesn’t quite do the job and you are out of lacquer thinner, hot water is a great trick. All you have to do is run the bottle under hot water to heat the polish. This will temporarily thin out the formula.

How do you fix clumpy nail polish without acetone?

If you don’t have access to acetone or a polish thinner and are in need of a quick fix, try adding a few drops of hot water. The reality is, no matter how much you shake, warm and thin your polish, it will clump eventually.

How can I soften nail polish?

Simply pour some hot water into a bowl and place the nail polishes in there for 30-60 minutes. You can also put a small amount of nail polish remover into the dried-up nail polish to help it liquefy again.

Do nail salons thin their Polish?

While they won’t openly admit it, some nail salons secretly dilute their polish. Not only is it not sanitary, but it also means you’re being taken advantage of.
