Nail Polish Remover Cocktail To Try & My 4-Way Frustration

Hello there,

I don't like to rant but lately, it's been getting on my nerve and it's happening more frequently. I'm talking about the 4-way stop rule. I live on a street that has a couple of 4-way stops on my daily commute and almost everyday I encounter one or more of the following idiots:

1. People who slowly roll to the stop sign without stopping and speed away as soon as they see you slow down to stop.
2. People who stop 6 feet before the stop sign cause they know you're going to stop before them so they decide to stop early so they can go before you.
3. People who stop after you and don't give a &#@* what you think and still go before you.
4. You stop after the car on the left but before the car on the right. So while you wait for the car on the left to cross, the car on the right decides to go when it's your turn to go.
5. You let the car that stopped before you go but the car behind that car decides not to stop and keep rolling with the other car.

I'm so annoyed with people who don't know how to drive. The rule is simple. You must make a complete stop at the stop sign and yield to the motorist who stops first. If you both stop at the same time, the motorist on your right has the right to go first. How complicated is that? Anyways, that's my rant of the day for yall.

Now on more important things...I wanted to share with you how I mix my nail polish removers and why....

In the past, I have used those cheap dollar store nail polish removers and found that I always had to rub really hard in order to get the color off. It gets even worst when I have to deal with glitters.

When I switched to 100% acetone, I was pleased that the solution was much more potent and removed nail polishes better and quicker. The problem is that pure acetone can be harsh and drying on your cuticles and nails. I started mixing 2 parts pure acetone with 1 part nourishing/conditioning removers and I've found that by mixing a concoction of the two, I get the best of both world. Still removes nail polish quickly and effectively without over drying. I would highly recommend that you try this nail polish remover cocktail if you're not already doing so.

Do you mix your own nail polish remover? If so, what do you use?
Do you have anything to add to my 4-way dilemma? haha


  1. I live in the city so this is all too familiar to me on a daily basis. It prob just happened to me this morning lol. It's hard to contain my temperament.

    1. Girl...I think half of Chicago drivers are nuts and aggressive, lol. I guess that's what the city does to ya.

  2. I don't usually have a problem with 4 way stops but ROUNDABOUTS are a different story!!! They're becoming more and more common in my area and people don't know how to use them, even though there are huge signs with arrows posted up everywhere before and during the roundabouts.

    Your polish concoction makes a lot of sense. I'll try that next time.

    1. It's funny cause I normally dont have problem with roundabouts. Definitely try this concoction and I hope you like it.

  3. Ugh, I HATE four-way stops!! No one knows how to navigate them! Sometimes I plan my route to avoid the 4-way stops just because I hate them so badly. People are awful.

    1. I know huh! Either they don't know or they don't care...It's so annoying!
