Written by Tara

Celebrity manicurist and general manager of Base Coat Nail Salon Shelly Hill says her go-to method for thinning out nail polish is a drop of pure acetone. Just like polish thinners, it’s critical to use only one drop of pure acetone in your bottle of 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.
