I like to wear nail polish in all sorts of fun crazy colors.  But sometimes the darker colors can stain my nails or be really hard to get off.  I learned the trick to removing dark colors of nail polish easily is patience!

Step 1: Get some nail polish remover

Any kind will work.  Also you need some cotton balls or pads. 
Soak the pad in nail polish remover, and apply it to your nail.
Now instead of scrubbing away at it, just let it sit for 30 seconds.

Step 2: Check the polish

After 30 seconds, lift the cotton pad to see how it's going. Already, most of the color has been removed.  Flip the pad over and use the other side to swipe away any remaining color.

Step 3: Rinse and repeat

Ok, there's no rinsing required.  Just repeat this process on all of your nails, and they'll be fresh as a daisy with no effort at all. 

Any remaining color stuck under your nails or cuticles can be easily removed with soap and water on a nail brush.
