I was at CVS this weekend...SHOCKING!.....and I saw that they had a new cotton pad for removing nail polish.
It has two sides, one soft and the other exfoliating bumps.
See they have "exfoliating beads" in the pads
I wouldn't say that there are actual beads in here, but they are bumpy and harder, not just "quilted" like toilet paper :)
So I decided I would give these a try and see if they remove glitter and glass flecked polishes easier than the "foil method".
Currently I was wearing Sally Hansen "Laser"
I had on 1 coat of base coat, 1 coat of a nude color and 2 coats of "Laser", and 1 coat of top coat.
4 fingers later, this is the result. I know, I know it looks gross, but its important to note that although these have beads, they are really thin, I mean LOOK...there are 3 holes in the cotton pad.
So I decided to use these for my usual "foil method" on my other hand.
I like to cut the pads into 4 pieces. I use one piece per nail.
I saturate the pad with remover (not a difficult task since the pad is thin)...then I wrap with foil, wait a couple minutes, unwrap the foil and remove by slowly pulling the pad off the nail!
Come closer my pretty! HEE HEE HEE HEE!
My final verdict: These are no better than regular cotton pads from the drugstore, although I prefer the cotton pads from Japan. I'm out now, but when I get more I'll show you a picture...they rock! You can find them at most Asian Markets.
These ARE better than cotton balls, no wisps of cotton sticking to everything, but NOTHING, NOTHING works better than the foil method!
