The best nail polish remover ever
Like many women, I love having freshly painted nails. They make me feel neat and pulled together (which is a rarity since I became a mom).
However, I’ve always loathed the whole process of taking off my nail polish.
The smell of nail polish remover is just so overpowering and unpleasant and then there’s the stinging sensation that some of them cause and the horrible fumes that tend to linger in the air. Unfortunately, dealing with nail polish remover is the price a woman has to pay for having pretty nails.
When I finally ran out of my mainstream polish remover, I decided to see if a better, less toxic alternative existed. The reviews of the Mineral Fusion nail polish remover that I found were mostly positive, so I figured I’d give it a try. I didn’t really expect much from it, and I certainly didn’t think I’d eventually dedicate an entire post to it.
Now I haven’t used every single nail polish remover on the planet, but I am declaring this one by Mineral Fusion to be the very best that money can buy. I think the only thing that could top it would be one where a magic genie popped out of the bottle to remove the nail polish with a blink of his eye. (I suppose that would also be slightly creepy.)
The pros of the Mineral Fusion nail polish remover:
It works really fast. I only have to use one or two swipes per finger- even to remove darker fall colors!
I wouldn’t want to wear it as a perfume or anything, but it doesn’t smell horrific by any means, and the smell doesn’t take over whatever room I’m in while using it.
It is acetone-free, so it won’t dry out your nails and hands.
You can also use it to prep your nails before applying polish to extend the wear.
The cons of the Mineral Fusion nail polish remover:
At about $7-10 per bottle, it is slightly pricier than drugstore brands. I do find that I use less of it though, so it may even things out a little.
As I am sure you may have guessed, I use this to remove nontoxic nail polishes. However, I also tested it on a long-wearing Rimmel nail polish to see if it worked just as well…and it did. I personally don’t know how it would work on glitter polishes, but I did read a few reviews saying it gets the job done well.
This polish remover does contain fragrance, so if you’re not a fan of added fragrance, that is just something to be aware of before you purchase it.
