Instant nail polish remover
Manicures on the go have never been quicker or easier thanks to instant nail polish removers.
A makeup bag ‘must have’ for any fashionista, this type of polish remover usually refers to a small container featuring a pre-moistened pleated foam. All you do is stick your finger in the container and the remover-soaked sponge effortlessly takes off the layers of lacquers instantly. And with no need for cotton wool!
The convenient size means the remover is ideal for travel, and more and more beauty companies are tapping into the concept and offering different options to nail care fans.
For instance, Bourjois’ popular instant Magic Nail Polish Remover is now available for both fingers and toes, with the container’s lid featuring a unique cleanable sponge so you can remove polish from toes quick smart. The brand claims the sponge dissolves polish in “one second” though this is seems somewhat optimistic unless you are able to move your hands at superhuman speeds. It has a red berry and vanilla fragrance which leaves nails delicately scented.
Cutex offers a protein-enriched formula that works faster than any other traditional nail polish remover - even dark or glitter polish is easily dissolved away. Use the acetone formula for natural nails, or the non-acetone for both natural and artificial nails.
Those last-minute outfit changes require on-trend nails, and Ciate has thrown in their own version of instant nail polish remover with added scent. Their Choc Pots are perfect for slipping into your handbag and come in four chocolate-inspired scents, including Mint Chocolate and Orange Chocolate. The non-drying formulation is acetone-free and enriched with hydrating Marula Oil, Vitamin B5 and E and a sweet scent.
And Sephora has a new formula designed to effectively remove glitter polish, nail patches, nail tattoos and pen marks. It comes with an exclusive scrubbing sponge to help eliminate the toughest products.
