  1. Pour 1/2 cup of lemon juice into a bowl

    Pour 1/2 cup of lemon juice into a medium bowl. You can use bottled lemon juice bought from any grocery store, or you can squeeze your own. Either way works well because of the acidity in the lemons.

  2. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar into the bowl

    Pour 1/2 cup of vinegar into the bowl with the lemon juice. White vinegar is the most common choice, but apple cider vinegar works as well.

  3. Mix the ingredients together

    Using a spoon, mix the lemon juice and vinegar together thoroughly. Mix until they are combined well into one liquid.

  4. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture, and remove nail polish
