    To start dip cotton wool in nail polish remover and clean my toe nails. When the polish is really stuck, wrap the cotton wool over your nail with a piece of foil. Do so with each nail for 10 minutes.

    After that I take a lemon (or lemon Juice) and rub it on my toes to whiten the nail a bit.(10 min about) The scrub your feet with the salt. Rinse.
