So I love painting my nails, but I hate using nail polish remover. It smells, it makes any tiny cuts sting, and it leaves my nails stained if I use a dark colour (yes, even if I use a base coat).
Until I came across this stuff. Priti Soy Polish Remover.
It is is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and not carcinogenic, made from farm crops and does not contain any petroleum ingredients. I bought the lemongrass scented one, but they do an unscented one too. It is expensive, but I thought it would last a while as I only use a little bit each time.
I read a few reviews online, and they were mixed, but generally positive, and I am so glad I bought it. I ordered it from the Love Lula site (seeing a link on Laura’s blog) but google can show you other places.
Anyway, the verdict. It is amazing. A few tips of the bottle onto a cotton wool pad is all that is needed for each hand. The polish does not come off instantly but after a few rubs each nail is clean. It feels very oily, which is much better than the normal drying feeling, and it really does smell lemony. Also, no stains. I tend to choose darker colours like navy or deep pink, and normally my cuticles and under my nails get stained when I take the polish off (no idea why), but with this there is no such thing. No idea why. I have used it twice with different colours and each time has been brilliant.
If you are looking for a more natural product, or something that actually smells good, then I would recommend it 100%.
Any miracle products that you have been converted to recently?

I’m terrible, I hardly ever paint my nails, in fact if you were to go back on my blog I think I have blogged about each time that I DID paint my finger or toe nails … its a serious event for me 🙂
That used to be me!
This stuff looks great (glad you got it via Love Lula, love the site!) I’ll definitely be getting some of this 🙂
Hope you like it !
I’m rubbish at painting my nails. Every so often I decide to paint them but then always forget to take it off before it gets chipped or flakes and then end up hiding my nails in the palms of my hands. I’m into a routine with my toenails though. Must permanently paint those to cover up the purple/missing ones from running!
I am awful with toe nails as I never see them so I leave it on for weeks !
It’s always hard to find a good nail varnish remover and you are right they smell awful. Really like the sound of this one though.
This one smells so good !
Oooh this looks great Maria, I don’t paint my nails often but I hate the chemical smell and feel of the nail polish remover.
This one is really good – does not smell bad at all.
Eck, I literally never paint my nails. I love it when they are painted but they stay nice for all about two days before I chip them. Then it looks awful and cheap. Just too much effort for something that doesn’t last long with me and my clumsy self! Toe nails however are a necessity because honestly my feet need something to make them at least *sort of* socially acceptable in yoga.
I love the sally Hansen quick dry top coat as it stops little chips so they last longer.
Oooooo thanks for sharing I will be in need of a nail varnish remover soon and this could be the one. I don’t really using my nails much but when I do I also hate the remover getting in cuts and the toxic smell!
I hope you like it – I think it is great.
