Recently, I had a relaxing night in with some of my girlfriends.
The plan was movies (chick flicks, of course), manicures and snacks, and when I brought out my nail polishes, one of my friends were so tickled by one thing: the fact that I tie rubber bands around the bottle caps.
The reason? To help open stuck nail polish caps.
My mom has been doing this for as long as I can remember (I can even recall asking her about it as a young kid), and it’s been such the norm to me since then, that I never thought twice about it, and do it myself now. Almost automatically.
However, my friend found it to be so clever, that she actually called another friend to come from the kitchen and take a look.
Lo and behold, she too had never heard of my mom’s savvy little trick, and so this post was born!
So for whatever reason you may be having trouble opening your hard and stuck nail polish caps, try this trick out.

And it’s simple: all you have to do is tie a rubber band or two around the handle and voila – your very own griper to open stuck nail polish caps!
