Ohâ€¦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 wouldnâ€™t evolve. But this world has its own charm isnâ€™t it?
Nail polish removers evolved from the cotton dipped bottles > wipes > Colorbar/Bourjoisâ€™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 & Zeeâ€™s eBay haul â€“ 6 wipes boxes for Rs.199 and the frenzy around it. I wanted one tooâ€¦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 (thereâ€™s some Chinese on it, I donâ€™t know else it says)
It has 45 wipes that are thin, oily and work very well. Iâ€™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 itâ€™s a light color. You will need another one if itâ€™s a darker shade. This time, I had red on my toes and nude on finger. One wipe cleaned the hand and foot set. Isnâ€™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. Iâ€™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 doesnâ€™t do such a great job. I like the Shengji ones much better. Donâ€™t miss it.
