Sunday Night Ritual.. NOTD Removal

Hi loves!  I've had a pretty rough few weeks, I'm not going to lie.. hence the lack of blog posts.  Being couch ridden does not help my motivation to create make-up looks, even though I really want to..  So I've pretty much stuck to nails, hair and skincare for the moment.  This Sunday was no different than last Sunday to be honest.  I stayed off my feet and instead of putting nail polish ON, I've taken it off, but in a slightly new way. 

My June Birchbox came with a couple samples of Deborah Lippman's "Stripper-to-Go" Nail Remover mitts.  I usually just do it the old fashion way with a big bottle of Polish Remover, some cotton balls, and a paper towel (for protection purposes).  But these are just genius!!  Let me know show you -

Now, the package says that 1 mitt is able to clean all 10 fingers.  Unfortunately that was not the case with me.  It dried out about 8 fingers in and the material started to stick to my nails.  So I broke out the old polish remover and finished the rest.  See the results below -

Clean nails!

Even though I was a bit disappointed that it dried out so close to the finish line, I am amazed by this new-found product!  Especially for me, who is pretty lazy about keeping up with nail care, this product is brilliant and I will definitely be purchasing more.  These specific mitts are 10 for $12 and you can buy them at Nordstroms, Barneys, Amazon, and of course if you are a subscriber.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this product review and let me know if you are loving any different nail removal techniques that are a bit out of the norm.  Oh also, it's Father's Day today and I must give a shout-out to my Dad, even though he doesn't know my blog exists, haha!  HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Dad's out there!!!  xoxoxoxoxoxo


  1. This sounds like a great product and it's a really cute little mitt.

    I hope you're doing a little better now.
