Karma Organic Spa Nail Polish Remover

Removing old polish used to be an ordeal that was only slightly better than a trip to the DMV. Dramatics aside, our lives did just get a lot easier thanks to this non-toxic polish remover. The formula contains only cruelty-free ingredients and doesn’t emit unpleasant acetone fumes. It’s gentle on our nails yet works quickly, saving us both time and frustration.

Didn't work
Sampled

It didn't take of Zoya, Julep, or OPI polishes, even after a good soak. Maybe I received a dud sample, but it was very disappointing. I was really looking for a replacement to my regular acetone, too.

No, it doesn't smell like acetone, but it does reek of tea tree oil (which is a primary ingredient, so no surprise there). So I would hardly call its aroma "pleasant." I tried using it to remove some straggling base coat from gel polish (not an entire intact nail), and it was not up to the task. It took nearly the whole sample bottle to get off one tiny patch, turning into a gloopy mess. Definitely will not be buying this one in future.

It took the whole bottle to get my polish off.
This may smell nice and be gentle but it just plain does not work well.

The only good thing is that it smells OK

I honestly am very confused as to how and why this has such high ratings. I found it to be the absolute worst nail polish remover I've ever used in my life. The smell is fine, definitely not as over-bearing as regular acetone fumes. It did not remove my nail polish though! I'm usually able to take one swipe to my nail and poof, polish is gone. Not with this, though. I had to scrub and scrub and waste 2 large cotton balls on ONE nail... to only leave residue and a faded polish look on my nails and in my cuticles. Really not happy and hopefully polishes/removers won't be in my box anymore :(

Meh

This product was hardly effective in removing my nail polish and had to use practically the entire bottle as well as an intense amount of scrubbing to remove it entirely.

not worth it

it take FOREVER to work, it's not worth the money or time spent! I was hoping this was a good alternative to normal nail polish removal but no way!

This stuff did not take my polish off. I had a normal polish on, no gel or anything, and I had to scrub and it still wouldn't come off. On the plus side, it did smell good and had a moisturizing oil feel.

Non-remover

I had one thin coat of nude polish + a clear coat on my nails when I received this sample. It took 10x the effort to get the polish off with this remover! I appreciate that it didn't smell toxic and is kinder to my nails/the environment, but it's no good if it doesn't work on even the easiest removal jobs.

Nothing special

I found it really hard to remove nail polish. The only thing I liked about this product was it didn't have a harsh acetone smell like your normal nail polish remover.

This product is horrible! It absolutely would not take any polish off of my nails. I wiped and wiped and held the cotton pad to my nail to let it soak, but barely any polish came off at all.
