Welcome back everyone, happy new year and all that jazz :) I apologize for my recent absence but a combination of holidays and start of the year laziness as well as just a general slump in my beauty collection led me to being a bit less then zealous in terms of updates. I don't like buying things just to review them if i don't think i might like them so i guess certain times will just be more active then others, in general i was somewhat bored with everything i was seeing. To reflect that I'm going to try some new things this month and maybe branch into showing off some jewelery pieces I've become interested in.
So here is a weird nail polish remover i found at Gloss near the end of December and though it looked worth giving a go, it came in a variety of scents including cucumber and strawberry if i recall correctly, i picked the lemon version. When i first picked it up it was much brighter yellow; this is after about 6 uses.
This is not a new concept, there is a Burjois version in the UK/US which i hear is quite good but i have never seen it here, not have i seen a version from Sally Hansen though no doubt there is one somewhere.
Overall this smells very much like a candy lemon; very sweet and sticky and the nail polish remover soaked into is is similarly very sticky and every time i tried it i found my hands sticking to every little thing and i needed regular remover and a hand wash before i could reapply anything new, so it the end it was a disappointment. Still not a huge loss for $3.
As for effectiveness; well it does work just not as quickly as other polish removers, for a single coat of polish it took about a minute, and up to 5 minutes for anything over one coat, it only began to work better after i dumped the left overs of my previous nail polish remover into it. In addition the clear glass jar which looks quite nice to begin with becomes yucky and gray/black as the nail polish sinks into it over time. So sadly this was a bust.
So keep an eye out and avoid this product! Be seeing more of you soon!
Let me know if you would be interested in jewelry posts and what are your thoughts on products like this? Have you ever found one like this that actually works comparably well to regular polish remover?
