Last month I ordered a new nail polish remover from Vitacost.com. For at least 2 years I’ve been using almost exclusively acetone from the drugstore to remove my nail polish. Yes, I know, acetone is incredibly drying and blah blah. I’ve had bad nails my whole life (flaking, dry…) and acetone wasn’t making them any more, so I just continued. Since I’ve been trying to use more natural products, I figured I should at least attempt to try a more natural nail polish remover.
The nail polish remover I chose is from Honeybee Gardens. The product is ‘botanically enriched’ so I guess it is plant based.
The product does get your nail polish off, that’s for sure, but it definitely takes some patience and elbow grease. Since I had been using acetone for so long, I was used to only spending a minute taking my polish off. With this more natural type of remover, it took about 5 minutes per hand.
The most notable aspect of this product is the feel of it. The product leaves an oily residue on the nail, which feels hydrating. It took a little getting used too, but it isn’t too much of any issue to me anymore.
I’m still going to keep acetone on hand for taking of glitter nail polish, because this pretty much did nothing to remove glitter!
I want to try some other acetone free nail polish removers for sure. I use it so often, I want to have something I really like that really works.
Overall, the nail polish remover from Honeybee Gardens works…it just takes a little effort and time!
