Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and I have to say that this is something that you can just buy once and never buy again or you can even DIY it. I bought this over a year ago so I have had enough experience to tell you what I think about it and how you can actually make your own! Let’s get to it! If you want to just read the DIY, head on down!
Packaging: This isn’t the best thing to travel around with but it is really nice since it has a large enough hole so that you can dip multiple fingers in. The lid is really secure so as long as you close it right, it won’t spill.
Durability: I like that this really breaks down the nail polish and if you have glitter or any rhinestones on your fingers, with a little extra scrub on the foam and they come off, no problem. I think that the best thing about this product is that you don’t have to use a cotton ball to pull the nail bed.
Pigmentation: This actually came with a foam that was probably that normal beige color but had teal colored nail polish remover. Since mine is older it just kind of sucked all the old nail polish remover and made it yellow. Don’t freak out because you can still use it, no problem. The nail polish that you remove will stain the foam sponge and stay there, you don’t need to worry about it getting on your nails the next time you try to remove more polish. The only thing that I think won’t surprise anyone is that this smells like nail polish remove and can be rather strong since you are leaving the jar open for prolonged periods of time in order to remove nail polish rather than closing it off until you get another cotton ball.
Budget: Approximately $2-3 depending on where you go. I know at Walmart I bought it for only $2.
What you will need: An old container that is about 10 oz with a wide neck, large spongy foam or large makeup sponges, and nail polish remover.
This is super easy, all you need to do is…
1. Thoroughly clean out your container and leave it to dry overnight.
2. Cut your sponge with scissors, straight through, in different areas and place inside the container.
3. Fill as much or as little nail polish remover as you would like. The nail polish will eventually dry out if not used often so put only as much as you would use so you can save money!
Let me know if you will be making this or if you are just sticking to a bottle of polish! I want to know!
