I know many of you have noticed there haven’t been nail-of-the-day posts in months. I’ve been giving my nails a sabbatical from polish. It’s also because as a makeup artist on the job I keep my nails clean and short the way Bobbi Brown likes to. That’s not to say I’ll never ever wear nail polish again, these digits have just been vacationing. I’ll have nail posts up again in about a week since it has been awhile. One of my pet peeves with polished nails is what a pain it can be to clear polish off sometimes (especially glitter polishes, they’re the worst…). In the past, I’ve had my share of purchasing horribly diluted, cheap nail removers. They come in small bottles and often take 1/3 a bottle and half a dozen cotton balls to clear off two fingers while a third of the liquid will evaporate into thin air when you’re not looking. I want my polish remover to work but I don’t want to drop over Php100 for a remover. Caronia Nail Polish Remover is affordable at Php65.00, a small amount on a q-tip is strong enough to edit your polish edges, and it works even faster than the Sally Hansen one I tried. I like this also because prepping models nails for a shoot if they came with cracked polish simply should not take forever to do.
As long as you keep the bottle cap on tight this will last you months without evaporating on you. This bottle of Caronia Polish Remover has had this amount in it since the last time I used it about 5 months ago and it hasn’t dried up on me. Plus I’ve once had this bottle in a bag sideways on a trip and it didn’t spill. I’m not an anti-acetone girl but I won’t use PURE acetone to remove polish on my nails. This contains some acetone but isn’t PURE acetone and it has ingredients that will keep your nails from drying. I still use hand creme or lotion afterwards especially around my cuticles. If you are someone who likes changing nail polish more than 3x a week I suggest that it’s better to use a milder remover formula out on the market. When I do use polish I only change polish 2 or 3 times a month so this is fine for me. This costs Php65-70 and should be available at most local department stores and drugstores nationwide.
