Etude House Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover

etude house acetone free nail polish remover, bitsandtreats

I was super intrigued when I discovered this product at Etude House. I’ve never seen a cream nail polish remover before. It costs over Php200 so I gave it a go.

At first I thought it was going to be economical as I will avoid spills and excess product application. Boy, was I wrong. This is such a waste of money! I apply the product directly on my nail. It looks and feels like lotion, by the way. Then I rub my nail with a cotton pad. It took a few tries to remove my regular flat nail polish. On my first try, the nail polish wouldn’t budge so I used my finger to rub the product in and waited for a minute thinking that I might have to give the product time to settle/penetrate the nail polish. Wrong! I had to re-apply about 3-5 times to completely remove the polish on one nail. It takes sooo long to remove the nail polish. I was really frustrated so I went back to my TFS nail polish removers.

The other night, I forgot to remove the nail polish on my toes and I just did my manicure so I asked MB if he could remove the polish. I gave this product to him to use. *evil grin* This is not the first time that I asked MB to remove my nail polish. He was pretty pissed with this nail polish remover too. He said that it’s so hard to remove the polish with this product.

I haven’t tried using this with a glitter polish. I don’t think I will. I don’t know how long that will take! This is such a waste of time, money and energy. I do not recommend this product unless of course you want an acetone-free product and you have the patience to remove all 10 or 20 nail polish swatches on your fingers and toes. Does anyone have a better experience with this product? Maybe I’m just doing things wrong, I don’t know. I’d appreciate some enlightenment.
