How to Get Ink Off of Nailpolish

You just paid a mint to get your nails professionally manicured and somehow ended up with a nasty ink mark across one of them. Since you can't recreate that manicured look at home, remove the ink stains in just a few seconds so your manicure will be looking great again. You don't have to have a ruined manicure even if the ink stain is large and you probably have some hairspray on hand so it won't cost a thing to fix it.

Fix an ink stain on your nails quite easily.

Step 1

Squirt some hairspray on to a clean, soft cloth.

Step 2

Rub the hairspray on to the ink stain on your fingernails.

Step 3

Repeat as necessary until the ink stains have been completely removed.
