Happy New Year…Time to declutter

New year, new start. A great time to declutter and re organize. From nail polish to your wardrobe, the time is now.

Nail polish has a pretty good shelf life, however if you start to see more oil than polish at the top of the bottle, it’s time to get rid of it. Rolling or shaking it at this point is very very temporary. If your polish looks like the bottle image below, it is time to dispose of it.

For the bottles that still have some life left to them, mix them with other colors and create your own custom color.

You can also donate them to schools who need polish for teaching new manicurist how to polish or local community centers.

When all else fails, dispose of them correctly. Because nail polish is considered a hazardous waste, you have to dispose of it carefully. First, open a window. The fumes of several polishes being poured out could beca little over bearing.

Pour out nail polish onto pieces of newspaper. Let he polish dry completely. Leave the bottles open to dry out. Once everything is completely dry, screw the tops back on the bottles you can and dispose of the polish and bottles. Recycle the bottles or call a recycling company to pick them up. It is a process to dispose of old polish but it is environmentally safe to dispose of this way.

You can keep the good bottles on a shelf and organize by color. I tend to organize by brand and color. Do what works for you and have a good New Year in the name of polish.
