We received this nail remover mitt in our Decmeber GlossyBox along with a Deborah Lippman glitter nail varnish. I assume by the fact that it accompanied a glitter nail varnish it is ideal to remove glitter nail varnishes, we all know how tricky they can be.
The mitts are individually sealed to prevent them drying out. My one bug bear, which is really stupid, is that the tear off bit is at the bottom, therefore you open the packet upside down. Not very good if you’re superstitious!
I wasn’t really sure how you were supposed to use it, if you were supposed to pop the mitt over your nail and rub or pop it on and leave it for a while. I decided to pop it over one nail while scrubbing other nails, in effect doing two nails at once.
As you can see my nail varnish was in dire need of removing and there actually wasn’t that much left to remove. I only managed to do eight nails with this one mitt, if my nail varnish hadn’t been worn way beyond its life I think I would have only managed five or six. Maybe if I didn’t have glitter on it would have done all ten easily.
- Glitter nail varnish did come off easier than usual
- Strong lavender scent instead of the usual overpowering nail varnish remover scent
- Contain aloe vera to prevent dehydration
- Won’t remove all ten nails when wearing glitter
In my opinion there are a lot more pros than cons to these wipes, this aside I will not be re-purchasing. I find £14 to remove six lots of nail varnish very pricey! That amounts to roughly £2.35 each time you remove your nail varnish, providing that you manage to do all ten nails with one mitt.
The mitts are available exclusively to House of Fraser and are priced at £14 for six.
