Use toothpaste . A do-it-yourself method of removing enamel is to use ordinary toothpaste to brush your teeth. How do you proceed? Apply a small amount on the nail, then brush with an old toothbrush that is no longer used. Without rubbing too hard the nail polish should come off. To be even more effective, you can mix toothpaste with baking soda .

Wine vinegar and lemon juice . Another way is to use these two ingredients mixed, since together they have a significant acid action. First of all, we proceed by mixing the two liquids in a container, then dip the nails with the nail polish in the mix and remain so for 10-15 minutes. Once this is done, the enamel can be removed with a toothbrush or even with the other fingers.

Alcohol . Finally, using alcohol to remove nail polish can be very effective (and also the best solution in the absence of acetone). Denatured alcohol or products containing alcohol, such as perfumes, hair spray, deodorant spray and disinfectant, can be used in this sense. Proceed by immersing your fingers in the alcoholic liquid, preferably denatured to have a better effect, for about 15 minutes and then remove the enamel with a toothbrush or with the other fingers.
