2. The sponge is supposed to fit into the small jar, so cut it to a small piece if you need to. 

3. Place the sponge in the jar, then pour some nail polish remover into the jar. The sponge will absorb most, if not all of the nail polish remover, leaving it relatively damp.

4. Now in order to remove the nail polish from your nails without leaving any stains, all you will need to do is to submerge your finger, placing it entirely in the damp sponge. Twist your finger in sponge back and forth to allow the sponge to scrub against your nail. You will immediately notice how much of your nail polish is being removed, and the best part, no stains left behind. 

5. Once you are done, make sure to close the jar properly with a good lid. 

- Tip: This process can also work when trying to remove glitter nail polish.
