At this late an age, it might seem weird that I’ve only recently started experimenting with nail polish. I used to think that it’s a waste of time and effort (I probably had other things to do at that time), but now I see it as a way to release stress while expressing creativity. This is why it is great to see a nail product in my November BDJ Box. I received a full sized Yuka Nail Polish Remover Wipes, grape-scented. I tried it immediately after I got it, but for this review I waited until I was ready to remove the polish I got from a professional manicure service.
Check out this cute packaging. I am an anime fan, and anything that smacks of it is automatically a plus in my eyes. It’s also in this delicious grape scent that makes me want to taste it. (I didn’t. XD) I also like the fact that this is very reusable. I can see keeping small things (rings, erasers, flash disks) in this after I consume all the wipes.
Opening the container, you’ll see the 35 wipes all in one stack that is almost the same size as the container. This is unfortunate, because it makes it a little difficult to get only a single sheet. More often than not I end up getting a second sheet when I only wanted one.
Let me show you my nail polish. I got this done at Pacific Nails in Makati, a pretty nice nail salon. This is the fifth day I’m wearing the polish, and it only just started showing wear and tear. This is the state of my polish before I used the Yuka Wipes.
I used a wipe on my index nail, using one swipe only. It seems that I have a pretty strong top coat, as it barely dented the polish.
It took about three or four swipes before I got all the polish off.
Here’s the polish from my index nail on the wipe.
I used a total of two and a half wipes to get all the polish off ten nails. I could have used less, but the product dries up fast from the wipes and I didn’t realize it soon enough.
In conclusion, this seems to be a good product. Php68 for 35 wipes comes to almost 2 pesos per wipe which does seem a bit expensive for a nail polish remover. If you take into consideration the nice recyclable packaging and the convenience of the wipes, I’d say that is a 68 pesos well spent especially if you regularly use nail polish. Just take note that the product evaporates fast, so keep your container closed and work fast with the wipe you’re using.
