I recently picked up the Ulta Instant Nail Polish Remover on a whim, whilst browsing the nail section at Ulta. I haven’t tried one of these sponge polish removers in years… I remember having one as a young teen and using it until it quite literally dried out (and turned purple – yuck). I thought, “Why not? I’ll give it a go!” and into my basket it went.
Well? The verdict is in, and I love it. I had forgotten how convenient these little pots are, and it’s quite nice to not have to use a ton of cotton pads. Just a quick couple of swipes into the hole in the middle and my nail polish was completely off, except for my thumb which was at quite a weird angle and therefore needed the little “brush wand” to help it along the way. I don’t think it’s just my thumb, for the record. I think all thumbs will struggle with this type of remover pot. Also, I took one for the team and attempted to remove my pedicure with this; it’s not easy, I wouldn’t recommend. I think that’s what the wand is for.
I haven’t tried other brands so I don’t know how this stacks up to others, but I can definitely recommend this one. Give it a go next time you’re at Ulta, and if you are at another store and they have “their” brand, try it out!
Let me know if there is one in particular that is your favorite… but until I find a better one this will be a regular in my medicine cabinet. At $3.99 it's a bargain for something that works so well.
Hooray for an easy nail polish remover! Nothing is more curse-worthy than a nail polish remover that refuses to remove!
