Oh…I remember those days when I had to plead for a nail polish remover. The logic is, why apply if you have to remove it? When I was in school, I have used blades ( ), scraping by nails and plain acetone (I think) to remove the polish. Buying a remover was a luxury and something which I assumed wouldn’t evolve. But this world has its own charm isn’t it?
Nail polish removers evolved from the cotton dipped bottles > wipes > Colorbar/Bourjois’s remover sponge and now you even have cotton buds dipped in remover. Sometimes, boggles the mind!
When the wipes was a new concept to me, I was holidaying in Delhi and checking WS posts. I remember Ana & Zee’s eBay haul – 6 wipes boxes for Rs.199 and the frenzy around it. I wanted one too…Ana & Zee always tempting us eh??
I saw this with a roadside vendor at Sarojini market and asked him for the price, he said Rs.30. I grabbed it
Shengji Nail Polish Remover (there’s some Chinese on it, I don’t know else it says)
It has 45 wipes that are thin, oily and work very well. I’ll tell you why. The wipes are so thin, I wondered if I have to use 4-5 wipes per hand/foot for removal. No, one takes care of all my 10 toes and about 10 fingers if it’s a light color. You will need another one if it’s a darker shade. This time, I had red on my toes and nude on finger. One wipe cleaned the hand and foot set. Isn’t that the coolest thing?
If you ever find this brand, grab it immediately. They are worth the money you pay and certainly do a good job. I’d look at all the roadside vendors of accessories for this one. Not sure if we get this in stores.
The one negative point is, my nails have a filmy layer on top and have to be washed with soap and water. Do that and apply a hand cream and you are set.
I also bought one from Hip Hop wipes around the same time. They are pretty fancy, oily, and thicker and come with a cute, white tong to pick the wipes. For all the snazzy packaging, it doesn’t do such a great job. I like the Shengji ones much better. Don’t miss it.
