The Nail Polish Remover’s Revenge

Remember the time I used nail polish remover as toner, in a random act of stupidity?

Today,  the nail polish remover had its comeuppance, in a particularly neat reversal of fortune which saw me spend 15 frustrating minutes trying to remove my nail polish with…. eye makeup remover.

Clearly the nail polish remover had switched places with the eye makeup remover in the night, in a cunning plan to waste my time (and my eye makeup remover, now I come to think of it) and make me feel foolish.

Either that or I have some weird kind of blindness to things with the words “remover” in their names.

Whichever it is, I somehow don’t think Mensa will be calling anytime soon…

    At least you didn’t mistake the nail polish remover for eye make-up remover!

    Are you kidding? You're a *girl*. If you let Mensa get ahold of your phone number, you'll have to disconnect the line.

    After reading this I just moved my unstarted bottle of nail polish remover to a place far away from the shelf just under my toner…

    Yep sounds familiar, I had the same but more painful experience when I mixed up the industrial strength sandpaper with the Andrex.
    Ooh…. I still can’t sit down straight.

    Oh, the evil behaviors of medicine cabinet inhabitants; switching their places on you. This type of thing happens to me, too from time to time. I once coated my toothbrush with face soap. Not cool at all.
