In What’s Really New for Nails Part 1 The Advice Sisters suggested a bunch of new and nifty nail polish and nail art collections to suit every personality, interest and budget. But no matter what kind of polish, nail sticker or nail art you apply, at some point it’s time to remove it. Nail polish removers can be just as rough on your nails as polish can, and some really don’t work well, forcing you to scrub and scrub to remove polish. If you are wearing metallic and glitter polish, this is doubly so. Gel nail polish requires an acetone-based nail polish remover, and some of these can really dry out our nails, causing damage. Fortunately, CUTEX, a leader in nail polish removal products, has a bunch of products that can help you find the right one to remove the product on your nails safely and effectively.
As someone who loves glitter polish and lots of metallics, I’ve become a big fan of Cutex®’s SPA Formula Nail Polish Remover , which whisks away these hard to remove polishes quickly and easy without scrubbing and without the damaging effects of pure acetone remover. Cutex®’s SPA Formula Nail Polish Remover combines the power of acetone with the strengthening and nourishing capabilities of Cutex®’s patented natural drying botanical oils including apricot seed, flax seed and parilla oils. 98.4 percent acetone by itself would dry out your nails, but combined with the strengthening and nourishing capabilities of Cutex®’s patented natural drying oils including apricot seed, flax seed and perilla oils, the polish saves your nails from disaster. The natural drying oils begin as a liquid and turn into a solid when exposed to air as the acetone evaporates. Through the drying process nails are strengthened, leaving them feeling healthy and clean after just one use. I have been incredibly impressed with this product. which retails for just $4.49 and is available in 10 oz. bottles. The new SPA Formula is sold in select stores nationwide and online at www.cutexshop.com.
Impatient to get that polish off and get going? Try the fastest polish remover ever — Cutex®’s Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover looks like a traditional nail polish remover, but it removes polish so quickly, you’ll be amazed. And yet, the patented formula, while it also contains acetone, also has botanical oils (the natural drying oils) that strengthens nails and leaves them feeling healthy and clean after just one use. It also smells pretty great for a nail polish remover. You really can’t beat it. No wonder people gush (and we are gushing, too). 6-ounce (approx $3.79)
When I travel one of the things that worries me is bringing nail polish remover along. Sure you can put it in a little bottle, but what if it spills or evaporates? That’s why I really like Cutex®’s Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads for travel. These individually wrapped felt pads combine botanical oils with Cutex®’s patented remover formula that strengthens and nourishes nails after just one use. Just rip open the package when you’re ready to remove your nail polish and it’s one-use for all ten nails. They are available in three different formulas (REgular, Non-Acetone and –my favorite–Advanced Revival) in 10 and 3-count packages. These are great stocking stuffers, too. $4.99 for a package of 10 (also available in a 3 count package).
Gel manicures are fabulous, especially when you really don’t want to deal with re-doing your manicure for weeks. But at some point, that gel manicure is going to grow out and you’ll have to remove it. Alas, that’s when the “pain” arrives. Removing gel polish is not quick or easy. Cutex®’s Gel Polish Removal KiT ($9.95) is an all in one kit that helps you remove any UV or LED applied gel manicure and gives you 1 fl. oz. of acetone remover, 2.7. grams of cuticle cream, 30 foil wraps, and a birchwood buffer to help you deal with removing the polish, without damaging your nails by having to soak them in 100% acetone for removal. Cutex®’s Gel Polish Removal Kit uses the same patented Cutex® formula and botanical oils that Cutex® is known for. I wouldn’t say that it’s super-quick to use, but it will remove the polish with less pain to your nails. Here’s how: 1. BUFFER: crack top coat of gel polish.
2. CUTEX CUTICLE CREAM: dab cuticles to protect from prolonged exposure to acetone and nourish.
3. CUTEX GEL REMOVER: generously apply “gelled” solution containing botanical oils to nails, avoiding skin, which prevents harmful acetone effects.
4. FOIL WRAPS: wrap around nails
5. BIRCHWOOD STICK: lift and remove polish.
