DIY Cuticle Oil

I guess you're using cuticle oil, right? If not, you should be using it. It's the best way to take care of dry cuticles and it's not expensive at all. You can buy it *or* you can do it yourself. Like I did.

You're gonna need:
* empty (nail polish) bottle
* acetone
* cosmetic oil (it can be almond, olive oil ... mine is almond make-up remover oil)

Empty your bottle on a piece of cardboard. Wait for the polish to dry and then throw it away.

Pour acetone in your empty bottle. You don't have to fill it all the way, half full is OK. Shake it, shake it, shake it ( a polaroid picture). =) Empty the bottle by pouring acetone on a cotton pad and wait for the bottle to dry.

Now we have clean and empty bottle. Fill it with your chosen oil once the bottle has dried.
Voila! There's your cuticle oil!

I also removed the original sticker. Here's another tip for you: DON'T use your nails to remove it. Believe me. =) Use tweezers or something similar. Nails aren't tools!
I'm such a smart ass... *rolls eyes* =)

And to answer my own question. I'm 25 years old. Some of you got it right, but I just didn't want to ruin it for the others. =) Thanks for playing!

Thanks for looking!
