Saturday's Savings: Peachy Nails

Currently listening to: Without you by Glee

Good morning ladies,

Sometimes I'm hit by a great idea for a manicure during the day but when I come home from work I find that I can't be bothered to remove my current manicure, especially if it's a heavy duty glitter one.  When the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover was released, I was very interested to try it but the price (£4.99) put me off.  Then I heard about a cheaper equivalent available for 89p in Home Bargains...


Since I haven't tried the Bourjois version I have no idea how it compares to the Easy Nails offering but I think this product is great.  To remove your polish all you do is put your finger into the pot and twist it around for a few seconds, slightly longer if you're wearing a dark colour or a shimmer/glitter polish.  

While this works well at removing a light sprinkling of glitter, or glitter tips, I've found that it's difficult to remove a heavy duty glitter manicure and doing so will leave glitter particles that will annoy you the next time you use this.  What it is good for, in terms of glitter, is loosening the particles so it is very easy to swipe your nails with nail polish remover and cotton wool to remove the glitter after.

 

The light coloured sponge does become discoloured with use and the sponge starts to disintegrate quickly so a pot of this will not last as long as a bottle of nail polish remover but for the price and convenience I think this product is a must-have.  I like it so much that I recently bought three, one for manicures featuring light colours, one for dark colours and one for glitter.


What do you think girls?  Is this a product you've tried?  Does the thought of removing your current manicure deter you from painting your nails?

Bye for now,
Laura

  3. I love these nail polish removers, and have never looked back when using them. :D

    I've discovered a really good way to keep re-using them instead of buying a new pot each time, check out my DIY nail polish remover dip tutorial ^^ : http://lauraleialee.blogspot.com/2012/02/diy-nail-polish-remover-dip.html

  4. Been wanting to try these pot removers for awhile think they sound great...not so sure as you say they'll remove the glitter mani I have on at the min but sound fab for fast changing non glitters x

  5. Ooh I'v heard of these, they seem to do the job well! I bought one from poundland a little while ago, but it has a plastic comb like thing inside instead of a sponge lol. Still works really well though =]
