* Deodorant: Just use one to remove the colour off your nails. Simply spray it on the painted nails and then rub it off using a cotton pad. This, however, may take some time, and will not yield results as swiftly as a remover would. Keep at it, though.

* Hand sanitizer: Everybody has a hand sanitizer on them these days. Just put a little bit of it on a cotton ball and rub on the nails. Keep doing it till you see the nail polish losing its colour.

* Toothpaste: Not just for brushing your teeth, the toothpaste has many other uses and removing nail polish is one of them. All you need to do is rub a little bit of toothpaste on the nails using an old toothbrush. The toothpaste is believed to contain ethyl acetate, which is found in the polish remover, too. As such, it will be an effective hack.
