While visiting a friend several weeks ago, I discovered that she stores her nail polish in the refrigerator. When I asked her about it, she said that her mom had always done it, so she does it, too. I thought no more of it until tonight!
It literally took me half an hour to scrub the nail polish off Anna’s finger/toe nails! She had painted her nails at my friend’s house. Now, I’m curious. Is it possible that refrigerating the nail polish made it so difficult to get off? Maybe my remover was old? If you have a guess at what the issue was or if you have a suggestion on how to get it off in the future, I would love to know!
I did a little research on my own tonight and discovered that people have some really interesting ideas on what should be refrigerated. I also discovered that some people recommend that you store nail polish in the fridge to make it last longer.
From my experience, some nail polish just clumps no matter what, but maybe I should have tried refrigerating it! But maybe I also knew in the back of my mind that storing nail polish in the fridge could be dangerous because there is a small chance that the jar will get broken in the fridge, and if that happened, there is a small chance that the motor in the fridge will cause a spark, leading to the small chance that it might cause an explosion. 😀
So there’s my excuse!
