Why I Bombard You With Nail Instagrams

Yes, we've found a culprit for my incessant nail polish instagramming. Hooray!

The Maybelline Express Remover has been a joyous addition to my nail routine. I used to shy away from these because I thought they'd sting my fingers, which are always dry and therefore, cut. While this does sting on fresh wounds, they generally don't affect cuts otherwise. It's also great because it has a few nourishing ingredients including avocado oil which will have moisturising effects on your fingertips, and it's also free from parabens and acetone.

I also like that the inside sponge is grey, which means they aren't forever stained once you use an orange nail polish in them. I also really like the smell - I can't put my finger on what it is, but I think it's like the Clarins Hydramatte Moisturiser - that kind of cucumber + floral scent. There's really not much of a hint of the typical nailpolish remover scent which is great - so your finger tips smell gorgeous too ;)

Not only have I saved loads of cotton pads, removing nailpolish is so easy that even if I end up not feeling like a shade after finishing up, I don't have to think about the wasted cotton pads or time. It's also super useful if I want to show you guys a quick swatch of a nail polish I've been loving, but can't wear for the whole day because it clashes or I have to wear something a bit more conservative for the next day. Either way, it's given me a lot more freedom to swap my nail polish whenever I want to - that's always a plus with me!

Now I do apologise for those who are sick of knowing my nail shapes as well as myself.. but don't let that count against this product, it's brilliant ;) On the other hand, if you do love a bit of nail in your life, do follow me on Instagram here!

This will be available in Boots for £4.99.



  1. I do like the idea of these little nail varnish remover pots, however not the best for removing polish from your toes!

  2. Oooh, this is like the Bourjois one right? I really want to try this out, but in my country it's quite expensive unfortunately... Seems really promising though! :) x

  3. Is it bad and greedy if I admit that despite owning the Bourjois Magic nailpolish remover I 'd still love to give Maybelline's version a try? Just to see how it compares? Bec based on your review it sounds promising, :)
