1. Great nail polish bottle lubricant
One very common trouble most women face while opening nail polish bottles is that they become tight over a period of time and the lid refuses to budge. And your nail polish collection is so vast that the turn of wearing several of them comes well after a year. As a practice, coat the mouth of the nail polish bottle with Vaseline petroleum jelly, before twisting the cap. Even if you open the bottle after a long gap, the tip won’t get stuck.
2. Vaseline trick while applying nail polish
You are always rushed for time while applying nail polish that you end up colouring the skin on the side of your nails with the polish, and then get frustrated trying to get rid of it. Next time, before applying nail polish, cover the skin around your nails with Vaseline and then apply the nail polish. The extra colour spilling around the edges will not stick to the skin, you need to just wipe it off.
3. Vaseline for softer feet
You don’t have time for a pedicure, and not enough time in the day to look after your feet. You actually don’t need to take much trouble here. Before going to bed, apply Vaseline on your feet and massage it thoroughly. Further on, put on a pair of socks and go to sleep. When you wake up in the morning you will have soft, crack-free feet.
4. Say goodbye to sore ears
Your ears feel sore from wearing those heavy loop and chandelier earrings you have been sporting lately. Next time coat the hook or the stem of the earring with some Vaseline and then wear them. All the soreness from your ear will have gone, and you will love wearing your choice of earrings.
