Hey, guys! Sorry about my little hiatus there. The nausea and fatigue does seem to be improving little by little, so I am hoping to get back into the swing of things very soon! Today I picked up The Body Shop's Sweet Almond Oil Nail Varnish Remover, which I've heard some pretty good stuff about! I emptied it into my flip-top pump before taking a photo, but at least you can see how it's packaged.
I will say right off the bat that it's pretty pricey for the size ($10 for 3.3 ounces). It does not have a strong or unpleasant odor, which is a fantastic change of pace after finishing off the Nailtiques remover I wrote about in my remover comparison post last month. It actually has a sweet fragrance that strikes me as vanilla-ish. You can definitely still smell the alcohol in it, but overall it's a nice scent. I'm using it on my nails as I type, so you're pretty much getting a play-by-play here. Isn't that exciting? I'm noticing now that the smell is actually pretty nice once you've got it on a cotton ball and the alcohol vapors dissipate. The three nails I've done so far have come off nice and easy. There is a bit of oily residue left behind, but it really feels like it's hydrating my nails and cuticles. Working on my accent nail is proving a bit difficult, but that's to be expected since I used a glitter topper. I'm not totally sold on the ten dollar price tag for such a small amount of product, but my first impression is that the product itself is really nice. I might really love it after a few uses!
