I am a little late on the band wagon with this one, but I thought I would add my two cents to the collection. I bought this in Boots recently while I was in Dublin. I have been wanting to try it for ages mainly because of the novelty factor.
It is expensive for what it is, a sponge soaked in nail varnish remover. But personally I think it is totally worth the money. If you are lazy like me and procrastinate about getting a piece of cotton wool and soaking it in nail varnish remover then this is the product for you! It is so simple and takes a matter of minutes to complete. Although whilst removing my nail varnish with this today I looked down at my toes and thought, umm thats not going to work. You will still have to purchase nail varnish along side this which makes this even pricier and may put some people off.
The packaging is cute and feels durable and it has a good weight to it. I absolutely hate putting my finger in the hole as it feels gross but it does the trick so I cant complain. I feel they could have glued the sponge around the edges as sometimes it moves when you are twisting your finger.
The product is fantastic apart from the blatant lie on the packaging. Remove nail varnish in 1 second per nail... I think not more like 6 seconds but, I can deal with that if it means not rooting out cotton wool etc. It also smells pleasant unlike some nail varnish removers. I do wonder how long the product will actually last and if the sponge will get clogged with nail varnish after time. I also haven't tried removing glitter polish with it yet. I can see this causing a little difficulty.
When my this runs out I am going to try and make my own. Basically I plan to buy a sponge cut it so it will fit in the original Bourjois bottle and pour in some acetone free nail varnish remover. I think acetone free would be the best bet as acetone may evaporate and cause the sponge to disintegrate. What do you guys think? Do you think this will work? I shall document the process and let you know how it goes.
After all being said I love this product for it conveniences purposes and if my DIY method doesn't work out I will most definitely buy another.
