From Priti NYC
This stuff is FAB!!! So fab, I just had to share it 🙂
I bought this because despite my success in improving the condition and length of my nails – I was having real problems with the nail on the little finger of my right hand, and I could find amazingly little info online to help me out. Basically there is a flaw on the underside of my nail that results in a vertical split. Yep – a split that runs up the nail from tip to half moon =-O
It didnt matter how short I kept it either, so after a lot of research it appeared there was only one thing to do – apply a silk wrap to stop the split and hopefully allow the flaw to grow out.
The silk wrap has worked really well, but I can no longer use regular nail polish as that would dissolve the wrap.
I bought some acetone free stuff and OMG it was awful!! It sucked every bit of moisture out my nails leaving them white and ….well….dessicated. After an emergency application of oils, they recovered but there was no way I was using that paint stripper stuff again.
A hunt online led me to soy based polish removers and of the 2 possible brands I found, this one came out best in reviews.
It removes normal nail polish faster than any other I have used and because its oily it conditions as you go. It doesn’t stink like normal nail polish remover, nor does it sting if you have any dry or rough skin. I almost always have at least one patch of eczema on my hands and it was fine. Although it did sting a deeper cut…..but then if I had got normal nail polish remover into it I would have hit the ceiling!!
This lack of stink means I dont get moaned at if I do my nails in the presence of the rest of the family lol.
It did struggle a bit with a duochrome foil type polish – but then so do normal removers. I got around this by putting a drop of the soy onto each nail and let it soak in for a couple of minutes. That is not something you would want to do with regular remover!!
The biggest drawback is the price 😦
Ok…..brace yourselves…….sit down and have a cup of sweet tea ready before you read on…..ok……
Are we braced and clutching our mugs?
It was £18.99 ……..for 4 fluid ozs (is that around $30?). You can get 2 oz bottles too.
But I bet its a lot cheaper in the USA as that’s where its made.
Luckily a little goes a long way. And if you just pierce the foil that covers the top of the bottle, like I did, its easy to control how much you use. Also a bonus for adding a drop to each nail for stubborn polishes.
And the thinner the cotton wool pad you use, the less remover you use.
I’m currently changing my nail polish about every 5 days so I will let you know how long the bottle lasts.
In my opinion, this is far superior to all the usual nail polish removers and I intend to keep using it. Who knows, maybe the price will fall as it gains popularity or other companies bring out their own version.
But if you can afford this, I think its well worth it.
