Classics Nail Polish Remover
Advantages: works quickly, a little goes a long way, product lasts a long time (at least for me!)
Disadvantages: strong smell, a little pricier than other removers
I dont wear nail varnish constantly, probably once or twice a week. Unfortunatly due to my busy life, lack of experitise in painting or just down right crappy nails my varnish tends to chip within a day, two if im lucky. Thats when its time to remove! I did go through a phase of using those little nail varnish remover pads...they sucked. So i reverted back to classics.
One of my favourite thing about this bottle is its semi opaque meaning you can see how much you have left before its too late and you have to trudge to a shop with one bare hand, one painted. Its a very simple design- the front has the classics logo, what it is and how much there is of it.
Slightly to the side of the bottle is the flammable warning, a note to keep out of reach of children and the barcode.
On the back is directions in a variety of languages, lists of ingredients (very few: acetone, aqua, glycerine, bitrex), the recycling advice and the company address.
I apply this to a ball of cotton wool. I find 2 or 3 balls will remove polish from all 10 fingers, if its chipped I may only need one.
I feel a little goes a long way with these remover and although it doesnt strip a nail layer along with your polish it does only take about 3 swipes to completly remove the polish. Because of this Ive had the remover coming up to a year now and Id say I still have 3/4 of the bottle left!
Scent wise it does smell a little strong and chemically. It may be best to remove polish in a well ventilated area
My mum actually bought this for me when me and my son came to stay with her for a week. Id completly forgotten mine. She picked it up at a local pharamacy for around £1.99 (i think it was on offer) for a 400ml bottle. Ive looked online and it seems a bit pricier to pick them up now. Theyre going on amazon for £3.50. While I think that price is still ok value for what it does & how long it lasts I'd reccomend shopping around at local pharamacies to see if they stock it cheaper.
Summary: I love mine, its one brand I'm likely to stick to. Solid 5 stars from me.
