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 girl was so tickled by one thing: the fact that I tie rubber bands around the bottle caps.
My mom has been doing this for as long as I can remember (I can even recall asking her about it as a kid), and it’s been such the norm that I never thought twice about it, and do it myself now.
However, my friend found it to be so clever, that she actually called another girl 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 week’s beauty tip was born!
So for whatever reason you may be having trouble opening your hard and stuck nail polish caps, try this trick out. I’ve been doing this for years (like 20 years, y’all) for stuck nail polish caps and also because I need a better grip – sometimes with hand cream, your hands can get a bit slippery!
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 hard and stuck nail polish caps!
Let me know if you try it out yourself! It’s one of those little beauty hacks that all women should try.
