Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover Review

I’m usually quite skeptical about the unrealistic promises of the companies to solve all you problems at once.
As you might suspect, I use a lot of the nail polish remover and usually I buy something like Sally Hansen in drug stores. I also have some more expensive brands like Scotch Naturals that do pretty much the same job, but for the higher price.

Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover was among my birthday presents. I wouldn’t buy it myself, only because I never thought it would be something special or even different from the other nail polish removers on the market. 

I opened it, and it looks weird: piece of black foam with a hole in the middle. It made me even more skeptical.

I probably should not keep you waiting and tell you:
It's MAGIC!!!!!

I love glitter nail polishes, but neither of the methods of their removal (foil, wet nail polish on top, etc.) worked well for me. With this product most stubborn glitter manicure is removed in less than 2 minutes.

1. I used a micro-glitter nail polish to show you how it works. You basically put your finger in the hole and wait for couple of seconds. I waited around 5 seconds, not more.

2. Surprise!!! Nail polish dissolved. I tried it with many nail polishes. Of course, cremes and jelly polishes without glitter disappear literally in a second. Glitters are more stubborn, but it still much better than all the painful time consuming methods of glitter removal.

3. Here you go. If you have "super-stubborn" glitter, a little bit of it will stay near the cuticles, but it is easily removable.
