My November Julep Maven box came with several One Step Polish Remover Pads, and of course I shoved them to the side because get out of my way there is nail polish. But today I found myself in need of stripping my nails and I figured, "Hey! What a perfect time to try this out." As you can see, the pad comes in individual packets, super thin and compact. They're ideal for slipping into your purse or glove compartment. On the back, it reads:
Time to put it to the test. On my nails, Essie base coat, 2 coats of OPI's Die Another Day from their current Skyfall collection (isn't it gorge?), and my Seche Vite top coat.
Bad idea! My normal remover immediately started staining my finger, and my nails were a definite pink compared to the nails I used the Julep remover on. I couldn't believe how clean the Julep worked in comparison, but see for yourself:
Ingredients: Acetone, Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, PEG-75, Lanolin.
- Perfect for travel, on-the-go beauty touch ups.
- Very effective!
- Gentle on the nail.
- My nails don't smell like remover for the next 10 minutes.
- Had to use two pads. The second pad didn't get a lot of use so it felt kinda wasted.
Overall, I would totally recommend this, just for the convenience alone! And I guess the fact that it's actually good at what is says it does doesn't hurt either.
