Nail polish is one of those beauty items that requires a lot more time to burn up, but tends to remain in counters and cupboards for decades. In contrary to powders and blushes which come with a recommended make-up expiration date, lacquers, top and base coats, and unique nail treatment products don’t just have a mandated shelf life. So when do you drop them or know when its too old to use?
Correctly stored polish and unopened will last at least 18 months, maybe 24 months depending on storage conditions. How ether it is more important as opposed to relying upon the exact date to look for indications of a spoiled bottle.
SEEING AN EXPIRED NAIL POLISH. Feel is a dead giveaway for varnish. Older bottles so are difficult to apply an even layer compared to newer, no runnier feeling, and usually feel thick, clumpy. With time, some ingredients start to clump together, which makes it almost impossible to remix them.
THE BEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR NAIL POLISH. But with a little TLC, a long shelf life starts with all beauty products. Your nail polish should last forever, so long as you store it correctly and clen the bottle after each use. So long as the polish is stowed from direct sun as well as in a cool, dark setting, the light and heat may break the drying time, as well as the bottle of the neck is kept clean with acetone, there is no reason you cannot keep the nail renaissance going.
