2. Pull Out Ink

                                                  Bustle/Emma Matthews

Once you’ve removed the bottom of the pen, remove the ink filter of the pen. I’d recommend using a pair or tweezers and/or wearing rubbing gloves for this, as it can get messy.

Nail Polish Hack #5: Create Sharp Lines With Clear Tape

Kathleen Kamphausen

Sure, nail striping tape would make things much easier, but if you don’t have any handy, grab your regular Scotch tape instead. You can either apply the tape directly onto your bare nail for a negative-space mani, or for a two-toned look, stick the tape in cool shapes on already painted nails and do another coat right on top with a different nail color. Let it dry for a minute, and then grab both ends of the tape, and slowly peel them back at the same time for the finished look.

Try Vinegar and Lemon Juice

Vinegar is extremely acidic and widely known as a healthier alternative to your typical household cleaner. So why not put it on your nails, too? When combined with fresh lemon juice (also acidic), it gets the job done quickly—and completely chemical-free.


  • 2–4 tablespoons of vinegar 
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Cotton balls
  • Shallow bowl


Combine the vinegar and lemon in a shallow bowl and let soak for 10 to 20 minutes. Use the cotton ball immediately afterward to work off leftover polish.

Don't forget to wash your hands and apply moisturizer here too.

6. Empty Tip

                                                  Bustle/Emma Matthews

It’s slightly tricker to wash all the ink out the tip of the pen, but don’t worry too much if there’s still a tiny bit left in it. As long as the majority of it is clear.

Nail Polish Hack #17: Use Stickers to Organize Your Nail Polishes

Kathleen Kamphausen

If you’ve got a nail polish collection that could rival that of a salon, you can easily organize your stash with a few stickers and swatches. Paint a strip of polish on an adhesive file folder label, punch out a hole, and stick the paint sample on the top of the nail polish bottle. Repeat this for all of your polishes, set them in a box, and store them in a cool, dry place.
