I’m so excited it’s the start of the long weekend!
Today I have a different kind of post for you. As you might have guessed I am a big fan of Deborah Lippmann’s nail polish. I was asked by Nail Polish Canada if I would like to review a nail polish remover product by Deborah Lippmann called The Stripper to Go. Typically when I remove nail polish I use a combination of acetone, glycerin and water. However I actually have used Deborah Lippmann’s The Stripper before as it came in a gift set that I purchased but I had never used the to go version.
1 box comes with 6 mitts. I had no idea what the mitt would look like. But it’s like a little cover for your nail. It’s really cute.
I was most skeptical about the claim that 1 mitt removes nail polish on all 10 nails. I tried it out on 2 different polishes, a creme and glitter polish. Deborah Lippmann On The Beach and China Glaze Emerald Sparkle were my two choices.
Removal of Deborah Lippmann’s On The Beach took 2 mitts for all 10 nails:
Removal of China Glaze Emerald Sparkle took 3 mitts for all 10 nails:
Overall: I found the mitts to be very moisturizing, even more so then the original The Stripper. Something about the felt mitt and the aloe must be it. I think it did a great job of removing the colours, even the glitter which is notoriously difficult to remove. I’m not a huge fan of lavender scented anything but this was not too offensive to me. And while I was not able to get one mitt to remove all the nail polish from all 10 fingers it did a much better job then I thought. Even though it did not meet this claim I would MUCH rather take this with me on a trip then risk bringing a bottle of acetone that could open and spill. I think these are great for travel and I will be picking up some more in case I do go away this summer.
You can find it on Nail Polish Canada here and 1 box has 6 mitts and retails for $12 CAD.
What do you think? What do you use to remove your nail polish? Would you pack bottles of remover on a trip.
