Woman shares unexpected hack to make nail polish last 10 years

A woman claims she can make her nail polish last for 10 years with this simple beauty hack

TikToker Mandy Gragg moved from the Lower East Side, a prime New York City location, to a small studio with rent control in the Upper East Side. While showing off her apartment, people couldn’t help but notice her large refrigerator. The massive double-door fridge might be a staple in huge suburban homes, but it’s a rarity in places with much less space like NYC. Gragg admitted that because she lucked out, she always makes sure to maximize her fridge space. 

“OK, but you have to admit that fridge is legit for a NYC apartment,” someone told Gragg in a comment. 

“I know,” Gragg responded. “Of course, we maximize every square inch, and that includes the fridge. I’m going to let you onto a little hack here: I store all my nail polish in the fridge.” 

There appeared to be dozens of tiny little bottles of nail polish on the very top shelf of the fridge. 

“Why? Because it keeps them from getting all goopy and gross,” she explained. “You can have nail polish forever. Some of these are about 10 years old.” 

Gragg added that she started collecting nail polishes in college and claimed this will keep them in good condition. 

“OK, nail polish wasn’t even on the list of things I was expecting to see,” a user said.

“That took a turn,” another joked

“So Carrie Bradshaw of you,” someone added
