I love nail polish. I change my polish almost as much as I eat - and I eat a lot, as you know. If I could put nail polish on my body, I probably would. On my eyes even. I'm not going to though because... well, I'm just not. I still think about it. What I don't like is taking nail polish off - I wish I had some kind of Jedi mind power that would just let me think it off, so I could put another colour on. No mess, no fuss. Now in my pursuit of this Jedi experience I have tried:
- nail wipes - just as messy as remover and cotton pads quite frankly, and they tend to dye your fingers in the bargain
- cotton buds soaked in remover - a nightmare of smelly, aggravating, time-consuming proportions. Recommended to me by a friend a long time ago and not worth going anywhere near
- nail polish remover pots - little things with a spongy interior and remover. Dip in, pull out, nail polish gone. Except it never usually did. And they smell bad.
So, Bourjois up and bring out their version of the last item on the list - the remover pot with the sponge etc. "Uh oh," I thought. "Been there and done that. Prepared to be unimpressed."
But a lot of my friends and fellow beauty bloggers were trying it and loving it. Hmm. I bought some, mainly so I could sneer and be smug when it failed... but it's actually pretty good. It doesn't take the one second that it claims on the bottle - it takes you longer than one second to get your finger inside for starters - and it is deeply pornographic to use. I'll say that again - deeply pornographic. Perhaps it's just my filthy mind. Filthy mind, clean nails - not a bad result.
Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover is available here priced £4.99.
