What nail polish remover should you use??

With so many removers available it can be hard to know which one to buy. Some stores will carry just a few from the same company, others will have 10 different brands! So how do you know which one is best? Does it really matter which brand or can the cheapest be purchased. Which ones are harsh or gentle? There are so many considerations when purchasing remover. I hope the following review will give you some options and insights into what products might work best for you.

I’m not really particular to a brand and will generally purchase based on price and brands that I know are good. However my main rule when purchasing is to buy remover that is Acetone free.

If you have any favorite removers that you think I should try, leave a comment below.

The following will use my new scoring system for nail art tools. See the full details here.

Face of Australia – Avg Score 4.25

Face Of Australia Nail Polish Remover Acetone Free 110 mLThe Face of Australia Nail Polish remover is one of my favorites. It’s not harsh on my nails and doesn’t have the very horrible smell like most removers. It’s almost as if they have added perfume to the remover. It works well and takes the polish off easily. This has become one of my go to removers when I can find it as not all stores stock this brand.

Sally Hansen – Avg Score 3.5

Sally Hansen Remover Artificial BlueI love the bottle for Sally Hansen’s nail polish remover. Whilst it’s the same deisgn seen in many other products, that s what is great about it. I can recognise it straight away. The only issue is if I’m cotton tips its a little hard to get the tip into the bottle. The remover itself works really well and isn’t as harsh as some removers that I have used.

Beauty Essentials (Priceline Australia) – Avg Score 3.75

priceline
I bought this one when Priceline where having a massive sale. Even without the discount the this remover is quite cheap. More importantly it works pretty well. However in contrast to Face of Australia it takes a little more effort to remove the nail polish.

Beauty Care (Kmart Australia)  –  Avg score 3

Kmart Nail Polish Remover

In contrast to all of the removers I have talked about so far,  this one is by far the cheapest at $2 (AUD) a bottle. This is great for a casual user or for an emergeny. However I really noticed the cheapness of the product and so it wouldn’t be one that I would purchase again unless I was desperate.

Cutex – Avg Score 3.5

This is probably one of the most well known removers (at least in Australia it is). I also have a bit of a soft spot for it as it was the first remover that I used. The removal process is faily easy. My only issue with it is that it smells so bad! Additionally it can be a bit pricy depending on where its purchased.
