I quite like a bit of glitter nail polish. In fact, that's a bit of an understatement - I absolutely LOVE glitter nail polish. What I don't love is the pain in the arse that is removing glitter polish - so I tend to go for nail polish removers which have tons of acetone in them. All the better to dissolve the glitter from my nails.
The most recent bottle I picked up was a cheap one from Boots - Clean Off Nail Polish Remover. At £1.33, it's very cheap indeed, and it definitely fulfils my glitter-dissolving requirements. This stuff is very potent - it stinks to high heaven, and used cotton pads with even a bit of this on them fill an entire room with that overpowering nail polish remover smell. So much so that my husband has insisted that I put used cotton in the bathroom bin instead of in our bedroom.
Anyway - the potent scent sits alongside a very strong action - this lifts normal polish off the nail incredibly quickly, and with a tiny bit of soaking, makes short work of glitter polishes too. After use my nails are a little dry, but used with a decent strengthener (as I do every time I paint my nails), I've not noticed any long term problems with using such a harsh remover. I'll definitely be buying another bottle.
If you'd like to try this one for yourself, you'll find it in store and online at Boots, where a 150ml bottle will cost a very reasonable £1.33. What do you think? What's the best remover you've ever tried? Let us know in the comments!
