When we first started painting our nails, we relied on bottles of acetone to whisk away old polish. Nowadays, even the thought of inhaling smelly fumes is enough to give us a headache. That’s why we’re hooked on these biodegradable pads. Instead of chemicals, they’re soaked with a sweet-smelling citrus solution that clears away old polish and leaves our nails moisturized and conditioned.
The concept is fantastic, but the execution is not. Many times I had to use more than one package to get all of the polish off. I liked the scent which was subtle, but the felt the pads were weak and didn't stand up to normal use.2
These are really great for travel or just to throw in your purse. They smell really nice too, but I think drugstore nail polish remover is cheaper and works just as well.2
I received two packages in my birch box this month. One I used to remove a nude color polish from my nails. It was successful but it took a long time to actually remove the polish. I then used the second one to attempt to remove a dark purple polish. This was a disaster. I barely got two nails done before I finally gave up and grabbed the cotton balls and bottle of remover. It didn't work at all, smeared the color rather than removing it.
It does smell wonderful however. I've just used better single use remover products.
This smells great, but I needed 2 pads to take off my nude colored nail polish. I buy a much cheaper drug store version that does the trick on both hands with only one pad.2
I love the idea of the nail polish remover to go- so great for travel. Even though this one smells amazing, one pouch/sheet barely got one side of my mani off. I prefer Lippmann's Striper To Go- despite the acetone, it works and works quickly with the same convenience for travel.2
This product would be good to take on a trip but I would not buy it for every day use. It is non-acetone so it won't remove my gel nails products. However, it will remove my stamping polishes, which is convenient, but there is just not enough remover on the pads for the amount that I need per manicure. It would not be cost effective.
I appreciate the nifty packaging, the portability, and I have to say this is the best-scented nail polish remover by far...but it just didn't take off the polish as easily or quickly as my trusty standby. I absolutely HATE removing polish, so to work that hard at doing it just doesn't make the grade from me.2
Although the product did what it says it will - take off nail polish - I was unimpressed. Liquid remover works just as effectively for a fraction of the cost. I will say, these are nice for nail polish enthusiasts such as myself....for instance if you are traveling and want to bring these along to redo your polish. I would not spend the money to buy more however.2
The packaging is nice and the scent is so much better than normal nail polish remover, but one pad only took off three nails of color.2
Smell was good and definitely a good addition to my travel bag but the price does not justify its convenience. A cotton pad and some acetone will get the job done for a fraction of the price.2
