Nail polish remover will never be the same
There’s no denying that nail polish remover is a necessary evil. Though an essential product just about all of us have, it has absolutely no redeeming qualities—other than removing nail polish. Between the caustic smell and drying effect on your skin and nails, it’s basically hell in a bottle. But, as will other less-than-pleasant beauty necessities (ahem, bikini waxes), we do what we have to do when we have to do it.
We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief (and throw away that bottle of nail polish remover that’s been living under our bathroom sink for years) thanks to The Sign Tribe’s Remove and Chill Nail Enamel Remover. This first-of-its-kind cream-based polish remover does away with the nose-hair-singeing scent—and all you have to do is apply a thick layer to your nails and leave on for one minute for each coat (so if you use base, two coats of polish and topcoat, sit back and relax for four minutes). When your time is up, massage the cream and wipe off with a cotton ball or pad and voila… You have soft, smooth skin and polish-free nails.
It might sound crazy, but it uses a blend of macadamia, almond, argan and sesame oils (and other waxes) to get the job done—but keep in mind it doesn’t work on gel or Shellac manicures. This is fine with me since long-lasting polish does a number on my nails, and I prefer a traditional polish that I don’t feel bad changing after about a week.
