Wipe them clean--- pocket friendly Nail Polish removers: Lakme Nailpolish, Faces Cosmetics Nail Polish and Streetwear nail Polish

 Lakme Nailpolish remover review, faces canada Nail polish remover review, Streetwear Nailpolish remover review

While we love wearing nail polishes, most of us forget to take them off. You might not be guilty of it, but I am. Rather, I used to be.  First, I have never been the mani-pedi girl and luckily my hands and feet don’t require too much of attention. Yes, bless my genes. Recently, while trying to finish up my nail polishes, I have fallen in love with them. Almost every week I am changing my nail polishes.
That also means, I need a lot of nail polish removers. Earlier, one bottle of a 30 ml remover would last me a year. Hahahaha, you can guess how much of nail paints I wore. 


Today I want to do very short reviews of two nail polishes I frequently reach out for.


Lakme Nail Polish remover aka Lakme Nail Color remover with Vitamin E
I had been using this one since ages past. The blue tinted liquid never fails to remove the most stubborn of my nail polishes and yet, never dries out my nails. Yes, I am finicky on that. I might not be doing regular manicures, but I am particular about what I wear on my nails. I think it’s one of the most effective, mild of the nails and value for money remover ever.
Price: 60 INR for 27 ml

Stretwear Nail Polish remover:
I had used the Streetwear nail polish remover ( Not in the picture) before,  and I was so horrified! It smelled of toluene and only toluene. I wondered if they had also put in formaldehyde we used to preserve specimen in the biology lab. I still suspect that it was actually pure toluene. It left my nails dry and so dull. My nails are not brittle, but it went through that kind of a phase. Once I finished it off, I never went back to it and never would.

Faces Cosmetics Nail Polish remover:
This one is supposedly free from toluene xylene and all the things that are harmful to your nails and hazardous to health. I liked the fact that it was mild, but it was a bit too mild. I would need a lot of it to get completely rid of everything. And removing the paint was a bit difficult too. It comes at 99 INR for a 30 ml bottle.
Speaking of myself, though I am a great fan of the brand, I am not too impressed with it.

Of the three Lakme is the one for me till now I think.(Yeah, the Faces bottle is empty.)
Which cost-effective and yet-not-so-harmful remover do you use?

    1. Spirit! Not a bad idea if you are wearing nail removers once in a blue moon. :P

      An appeal to my dear readers: Don't jump up at me for agreeing to this. I actually did that once or twice with my paint thinner :P
