Okay so there have been times when I wanna use a Nail Polish after a really long time and it would not open !!!
It could be because I didn’t use for a while or maybe I left a bit of Polish on the neck which eventually dried up & got stuck to the cap making it next to impossible to open !!!
Times like these can be very frustrating !!!
Well I came across a situation like this recently so thought of sharing ways of How to Open Stuck Polishes easily with no damage to the Bottle or to yourself ( yes you can hurt yourself too )
Opening the Bottle Upside Down
Turn the bottle upside down and try to open it but don’t use too much force also as it can cause damage to the Polish or to you !!! I cut my hand trying to open it !!! (See Pictures for Reference)
Rough Cloth / Towel on Cap
Put a Rough Cloth or a Towel on the Cap of the Bottle and try to open it !!! Again remember not to use too much force !!! (See Picture for Reference)
Rubber Band on Cap of the Bottle
Tie a Rubber Band on the cap of the bottle properly, then try to open it !!! The Rubber Band will give you a Better Grip to help you open it !!! Again guys don’t use too much force !!! (See Picture for Reference)
Put Bottle upside down in hot water
Take a Small Bowl filled with hot water (Not Boiling Hot) and put the bottle upside down in it !!! Just make sure that the water level doesn’t go above the cap !!! Leave it for 1-2 minutes & then open the bottle !!! (See Picture for Reference)
Run Hot Tap Water
If you find the above too tedious then just run Hot Tap water (Again not Boiling Hot) on the neck of the bottle for sometime say about 1-2 minutes & then open the bottle !!! (See Picture for Reference)
Use a Blow Dryer
As a last resort, take a blow dryer & use hot air on the neck of the bottle for about 1-2 minutes !!! It will surely open the bottle !!! (See Picture for Reference)
Lastly once the bottle does open, make sure to clean the neck of the bottle with a pure acetone preferably otherwise any remover would do for any future issues !!! (See Picture for Reference)
- Don’t try to open the Bottle with your Mouth !!!
- Use a Limited Force while opening the Bottle otherwise it can hurt you !!!
- Don’t use Boiling Water as it can crack the Bottle !!!
- Don’t try to bang the bottle anywhere thinking it will open !!! It will only break the bottle !!!
