Nail Polish Shelf Life

If your nail polish look like this........
it has lived it's life! You may be able to get it to remix but, it most likely won't dry right or give you a nice shine. They say the shelf life for nail polish is 2 years but I think it can be longer if stored properly.

Polish Storage Tips
1. Heat and sun exposure can cause changes in the color and consistency of your polish. Store it in a cool,dry, dark place, not the medicine cabinet in your bathroom!

2. Keep the polish lid tightly closed to keep the solvents in the polish. Solvents keep the polish the proper consistency. Clean old hard polish from the neck of the polish bottle to ensure a tight seal.

3. Some people think refrigerating their polish makes it last longer. I think just a cool, dry place is fine!

4. Store polish in an upright position. This will prevent a messy leak if the lid wasn't on tight. Also, the blender beads in the polish bottle will do a better mixing job if they are settled on the bottom.
