Warning: this post may be a *little* bit of a rant.
I took five or six mini Essie polishes on holiday. Some people might think that was excessive but I typically paint my nails every couple of days (sometimes every day!) and I knew I'd have to re-do my pedicure because walking around in flip flops usually results in a lot of chipping. I ended up only changing my polish once during the whole week and the main reason for that was that I brought these remover pads rather than my usual remover and cotton pads.
Now, I've used other remover pads before and every time I do I curse myself for buying them but these are the worst I've ever tried. I realise that they're acetone free so they're not as effective as my usual remover but normally I only use one cotton pad soaked in remover to take the polish off all ten nails. When I used these I had to use five just for my fingers!
The worst thing about these pads is the awful residue they leave behind. I expected to feel a bit like I'd used a cuticle butter or hand cream on my nail area but no, there was just loads of horrible smelly liquid all over my fingers. Yuck! I had to wash my hands three or four times to get it off and even after that I could still smell it. I didn't notice any particular 'conditioning' benefits but I guess that's because I washed it all away!
So basically this post is a warning; buy these with caution! They are priced at £1.50 for 15 pads which I think is pretty pricey but I wouldn't have minded if they'd worked nicely.
Have you tried these?
