Restoration Drops Polish Thinner 4 oz


Price: $6.50

Product ID : restoration-drops-polish-thinner-4-oz

Add To Wish List
Over time nail polish can get thick and stringy.  This is due to the evaporation of Butyl Acetate and Ethyl Acetate, two of the main ingredients in all nail polishes that help the polish to dry on your nails.

To restore thick polish, use our KBShimmer polish thinner, Restoration Drops.  For slightly thickened polish, start with 2-3 drops, shake, then check the consistency. Repeat until you are happy with the result. For dried out or severely thickened polish, we suggest that you fill the bottle with thinner to the fill line, let it sit overnight, and then shake in the morning.  You may need to use a toothpick or paperclip to stir, allowing the thinner to reach the bottom of the bottle.  As always, we highly suggest cleaning the necks of the polish bottles after use to allow a good seal. This will reduce polish evaporation in the long run.

To prevent evaporation of the thinner, store with the regular top.

Please note: Glitter polishes are generally thicker than cream polishes. The use of too much thinner can reduce the suspension properties of glitter polishes. Always start with 2-3 drops and only use what is needed to restore polish to its original consistency.

Holy Guacamole, Batman!
Got this on a whim because I had some goopy polishes that clearly needed a new life.

Not only did this stuff work, but I used only 1 or 2 drops per polish. Good. As. New.

I purchased a bottle of Restore to thin out an older glitter PPU polish that I bought, which had been owned by two people before me, and it's like brand new again

Everyone should have this for their polishes. It's magic.

My neighbor gave me a whole bunch of nail polish, with many being separated and goopy. This thinner did the job at correcting the nail polishes and resetting their formulas to being good as new. It's also sold at a great price point!

Best thinner
I always tell people if they need to thin out a polish, do so with a thinner that only has butyl acetate and ethyl acetate. This is the best possible thinner and at a really great price point.

Repeat buyer
Every lacquer enthusiast needs polish thinner in their arsenal and KBShimmer's is the best deal out there. I decant it into a smaller dropper bottle but it's easy to use right from the bottle with the twist-seal nozzle. I've used it with all kinds of indies and mainstream polishes with excellent results every time. One of my favorite KBShimmer products, I buy Restoration Drops two at a time and include a bottle when I gift polish to others.

i finally took the plunge & ordered the restoration drops to try to bring back to life a beloved polish that has lived in my refrigerator for the last EIGHTEEN YEARS.

it worked.

IT. WORKED!!!!!!

i have since saved SEVEN old bottles that i'd been saving & hoping that one day the technology would exist to bring them back to life. it was like i'd cryogenically frozen them. i can't believe this product, i've told everyone i know about it.

if you're on the fence, hesitate no more! your polish CAN be saved!!!

I finally signed up for an account just to review the polish thinner. This stuff did the job faster and better than Seche restore. I took a chance since I was ordering other stuff and I'm glad I did. You also can't beat the size/price combo.

My new fave.
