This is how I remove my nail polish. I read about it on a blog last year and it really is a great way of removing nail polish, especially stubborn dark polish which can leave stains on your finger nails and skin around the nail.
Cut cotton pads into pieces
Soak each piece in nail polish remover and place on the nail
Step 3-Wait 5mins to allow the nail polish remover to soak into the polish, then remove pieces of cotton from the nail
Remove any polish left on nail with a cotton pad
I found this process very helpful, less fuss and mess to clean up!
Hope you guys find it helpful too,
