A Holiday Life Saver

When I’m travelling I always want to be able to paint and remove my nail polish but I never want to carry a bottle of remover with me or pack it in my suitcase. I sometimes do pack it, luckily it’s never leaked, but I hate taking the risk. For some reason I’ve never thought to buy nail polish remover pads before now. I bought these the day before I was leaving in a mad rush to the shops to buy things we had forgotten. I think they’re around £2.50 but I know Boots do a cheaper alternative, they were just out of stock.

They work just as well as normal nail polish remover, just without the mess. They also don’t smell horrible at all, almost a fruity scent which is really nice. I’m not sure how long it would take for them to dry out and become un-useable as I’ve only had them for a week. I’ve kept most of the foil on to try and keep them for longer. The only thing I don’t like about them is that they leave your hands and nails really oily. This is easily solved my using soap but can get a bit annoying.

Have you tried these before?
