Finally! A bit of spare time to get up a review for you all! The beautiful ladies (and probably some handsome gentlemen) over at Nail Polish Canada sent me some of these Deborah Lippmann “The Stripper to Go” Lacquer Remover Finger Mitts to review. I have to apologize first to taking so long to review this product because I had them shipped to my house but they weren’t delivered there until after I had already moved away to school. Because of that, I had to wait a week until I could go home on the weekend and pick them up. I was so excited to try these out because I haven’t heard of them before, but I encountered a few problems that I’m interested in seeing if anyone else experienced.
This product comes in an adorably lilac colored package that you could most definitely stick in your purse or make-up bag. It would be much easier to travel around with these rather than a huge bottle of nail polish remover and some cotton balls.
Now what this product is is a lavender and acetone finger mitt that claims to remove the polish off of all ten fingers.
This mitt smells like acetone and a little bit of lavender, and I think it’s because it isn’t actually scented like lavender but it just has some sort of extract it in.
After putting the mitt on my thumb and letting it sit for about ten seconds, I began to rub it onto my nail and then removed the mitt. TADA! This is what I saw. The first thing I noticed was that the acetone didn’t dry out my cuticles or skin like it usually does, so that must be the work of the lavender. I continued using the mitt on all five of my nails…but as you can see below I had a little bit of an issue.
I skipped my ring finger because I figured it was glitter and it would be hard to remove, so I went straight to my pink. For some reason, my nail polish just wouldn’t come off! I kept rubbing and trying to get it off, but those two little spots of polish just wanted to stay forever! It seems like the mitt dried out or something!
I was a little disappointed in this…but I am definitely willing to try this again. I still have a few left to try, so next time I take off my polish I will use the mitt. Thanks again to Nail Polish Canada for this product! Everyone should check out their website (especially if you live in Canada), because they sell a really wide variety of salon brand polishes and Konad products!
This is what’s on my nails right now! The weather has been a little bit chilly these past couple of days, and to me that means Fall is coming so I thought I’d get in one last hurrah of bright color before I break out my dark colors. This is China Glaze’s Flip Flop Fantasy (which I finally found and bought immediately). The color is not as pink as it is in this photo, it is more coral and neon then that! I originally did one accent nail, but thought two accent nails would be really cool, especially because it looks like one of those “every other nail” designs. I really wish you could see exactly what color Flip Flop Fantasy is! It’s my new favorite! Here is a better photo on this website:
