Bourjois 1 Second Magic Nail Polish Remover Hands and Feet

For so long I've avoided my favourite glittering, disco ball nail varnishes. Why? Because they're such a ball ache to remove. But after investing in a little gem from Bourjois, I've found that taking them off is a piece of cake and I'm back on the glitter like nobody's business.

For so long I’ve avoided my favourite glittering, disco ball nail varnishes. Why? Because they’re such a ball ache to remove. But after investing in a little gem from Bourjois, I’ve found that taking them off is a piece of cake and I’m back on the glitter like nobody’s business.

Everyone raves about Bourjois’ nail remover pot, but to be honest I’d never tried it. I’m always sceptical about anything pre-soaked because, well, surely it’s going to dry out in five minutes? But when they unveiled a new version this spring with toes in mind, I had to give it a go.

Bottle

To quickly touch on what it does do, this pot contains a sponge soaked in nail varnish remover, and you simply pop your finger in a gap in the middle to soak it off. The pot is round so your finger is completely circled, meaning nails are off with no patchy cotton wool necessary. Where the real magic lies, however, is in the lid, which also has a little sponge attached to it. This in mind, you can remove your nail varnish without any product touching your hands, so you can change your pedicure without removing your manicure. To the beauty novice this may sound terribly simple, but for a fickle experimenter like me this is such a handy thing to have.

Lid

But atop the pedicure revelation, where I’m really seeing the benefit of this is when it comes to glitters. On the original WordPress version of Mixed Gems, my most popular post ever was a DIY piece about how to soak your nails off at home. Now that I’ve got this pot, there’s no faffing about, I can simply leave a glitter mani to soak for a little longer than a normal nail and it is off in no time. What’s more? The formula is infused with almond oil to nourish the cuticles and it’s acetone free.

Bourjois Hand and Feet

Now that you are enlightened, go get yourself some glitter! My picks are Deborah Lippmann, Ciate and Illamasqua for sophisticated, decadent disco glitter. Enjoy!
