Make Up Store Scented Nailpolish Remover

I don’t know about you but I absolutely dislike the smell of regular nail polish removers. Some times nail polish removers give me very bad headache especially when I do nail swatches for the blog.

Mentioned previously in one of my 6 Empties This Month post, I would like to share more thoughts on the Make Up Store Scented Nailpolish Remover. I picked up two more bottles recently and each bottle retails at S$25 for 125ml of product, made in EU.

It comes in a plastic bottle, with a screw cap. The inner plastic stopper allows you to gain control over the amount dispensed.

This acetone-free nail polish remover is gentle and effective. And it is scented with bergamot and strawberries.

When you pour this remover on a cotton pad, it smells just like any other nail polish remover. The scent kicks in after you have wiped off the nail colour and I really enjoy having nails that smells good.

Below is a little demonstration on a set of 3 days old red nails.

I pour a decent amount of remover onto cotton pad and leave cotton pad onto nail for a few seconds. This allows the remover to “break down” nail polish and I find this way more gentle for the nails. After a few seconds, press onto the cotton pad and pull downwards – in the direction away from cuticle.

Do it twice and nail colour is gone. For glitter nail colours, I leave cotton pad on my nails for twice longer so it gets nicely soaked up with remover.

It’s a little difficult to describe but I shall try my best – this Make Up Store Scented Nailpolish Remover is not as fluid as other nail polish removers like Sally Hansen. Say it doesn’t soak up a cotton pad but moisten it instead.

I guess because of this “dryer fluid” consistency, nail colours don’t spread out as easily when removing thus no mess occurred.

I hope this little review helped some of you. I really like the scent of this remover and I think it’s worth a try. It’s not particularly hydrating but it doesn’t dry out my nails after using. Besides my favourite (and slightly pricey) Chanel nail polish remover, this is my alternative.

Thank you for looking.
