With a job that doesn't allow nail varnish to be worn, and all the while being quite impatient, I love products which help me take off my nail varnish quickly and speed up the drying process too. Recently I have found two products which aid me in my quest to wear nail varnish regularly and I thought I'd share them with you:
Seche Vite Top Coat - £9
Let's start with the putting on, shall we? I'm fully aware my nail painting skills, or more my waiting for them to dry skills, are not the best. I always manage to get my fingerprint or a smushed corner on at least one nail, leading to a rather sticky mess and a rather flustered me. One Boots trip a couple months back, I saw this on the shelves and threw it in my basket, it was a hyped up product and a staple for most, so I thought I'd take the plunge and give it a whirl - and I'm glad I did! No longer do I have to look like I'm praying, and still snagging my nails. No, the drying isn't instant, but a damn lot shorter than it would be if I didn't use it. I can start on nail number 1, and by nail number 10, number 1 is practically dry. It has been working an absolute wonder for me and a big recommend for me, it even ended up in my January favourites!!
I remember this product being released, and even before I was really interested in beauty I remember thinking 'fad' - they've just soaked a sponge in nail varnish remover, and have always kind of ignored it on the Bourjois stand. Then one day something possessed me to give this a go, I can't have nail varnish on at work so I thought this would be a good locker essential. My first impression of this product is technically correct - it is a sponge soaked in nail varnish remover, but I think I overlooked how good that idea actually is. The solution itself is acetone free, and contains sweet almond oil which feels quite conditioning on the nails, leaving them feeling clean, not stripped or brittle. The speed is also a massive benefit, a few swivels in the sponge and the nail clear, and if not, just dip it back in with a bit more precision, and it is. Glitter nail varnish is always a bit of a pain to remove, but you can hold the finger in the pot, and really soak the nail in the solution, to get that mean old varnish off. If screwed on tight, this could live in your bag, it's the only piece of kit you need, so no fluffy cotton rounds at the bottom of your bag or sodden toilet roll falling apart when you're taking the polish off.
So, there you have it, two products helping me in the fight for wearing nail polish. Do you have any nail product favourites? I'm looking into getting a new base coat so would love some suggestions!!
