I faithfully get a professional pedicure every four weeks. I’ve found that by doing so I no longer lose toe nails from all the running. I tell my husband it is preventative medicine, but he doesn’t really buy it. It is partially true but I’m also funny about my toes looking nice year round. There’s one minor problem - with all the running the polish only looks good for about two weeks. Unfortunately I have to repaint them at least once between pedicures.
Recently I was painting them and spilled some polish on a towel. Did you know you can actually get nail polish out of some fabrics? Here’s what I found:
Check the care label
If the garment is made of acetate, triacetate, modacrylic, silk, rayon, or just plain dry clean only – take it to a professional
If the fabric is washable, use an acetone based nail polish remover. Place a clean white towel under the stain, dip the edge of another clean white towel in the solution, and working from the outside of the stain blot as the stain shifts from your garment to the towel. Then launder according to the labels directions.
