Award-winning Nail Polish Remover

zoya_nailpolish_wisebread_remove
Zoya Remove+ Nail Polish Remover was featured in WiseBread‘s article on the 5 Best Nail Polish Removers. Zoya Remove Plus is an award wining, gentle, yet highly effective 3-in-1 nail polish remover, nail prep and nail conditioner. It also has a lavender scent to it.

The Zoya Remove Plus Nail Polish Remover is the award-winning nail polish remover you never knew you needed. The 3-in-1 formula is a nail polish remover, nail prep, and nail cleaner and conditioner in one. It will clean and prep the nails while moisturizing, nourishing, and fortifying the nail plate. It can also remove surface oils from clean nails and prepare them for the next coat of color. It also promises to make your next nail polish application last longer. It is ultra-effective, but it won’t irritate or dry out the nails or cuticles. The mild formulation with glycerin is gentler than standard nail polish remover, but is just as effective at removing polish without leaving any streaking or staining behind. It has a pleasant lavender scent that reviewers tend to love. It comes in a portable, spill-proof big flipper pump dispenser enforced by a twist lock, so you can feel confident using it. You just push the cotton pad down on the dispenser to get the right amount of polish remover, just like in the salons.

This is an Amazon best-seller and has outstanding reviews from professionals and beauty mavens alike. It is recommended by NY Mag, and StyleCaster calls it one of the best gentle and nourishing nail polish removers available.” -WiseBread

Naked Manicure: The Naked Truth – Danielle

Naked TruthAfter learning about the Naked Manicure kit and how it promoted healthy, natural nails, I decided to take it home to test it on my parents, who have happily (and sometimes forcibly) volunteered to be guinea pigs for plenty of my projects in the past. Being quite the handy man [or insert job title here], my dad has really cracked nails, so I thought a manicure –  especially one that promotes healthy, lasting effects—would be perfect for him. When I asked him if I could paint his nails, he was hesitant at first, but when I explained the kit was suited for both women and men, and that it would help the appearance of his nails over time, he agreed. Immediately, he noticed a crazy difference: his cracked nails were filled in and looked much smoother! He said he has tried using an acrylic powder solution in the past to fix this problem, but it didn’t help as much as the Naked Manicure protector polish. The best part? It didn’t look like he was wearing nail polish at all! It could be his little secret.

Then, I tried the kit on my mom, who has ridging on her nails. She happily obliged when I explained the benefits and offered her hand in excitement. With one coat, the protector polish filled in her ridges and immediately smoothed and polished her nails with a glossy finish. Delighted with the results, my mom said her nails looked healthier and more “alive” than they have in a long time! The very next day, my mother woke up shrieking with joy. “Danielle!” she called to me in the hall, “I LOVE my nails!” She was so impressed with the lasting effects of the manicure that she ended up texting me periodically out of the blue for days to follow: “My nails still look amazing!” she would text happily. It is safe to say the Naked Manicure kit made us happier than we expected. —Danielle
