Like many cult products this one has probably been blogged to death about. However, since it appeared on the scene I’ve been dying to try it and I finally got my hands on one.

Anyone who says it doesn’t smell like nail polish remover is deluding themselves as the familiar acrid smell of acetone is there despite being acetone free, which I suspect is the acetone substitute ethyl acetate. However, once that smell evaporates your nails smell wonderfully sweet and fruity which is nice.

It does also leave your nails coated with a thin layer of oil to moisturise, which can be a little annoying but it does dry quite quickly so you can apply your nail polish.

As for the one second claim…I’m sorry but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I dipped my finger in for 1 second
nothing was removed.

I followed the instructions of dipping my finger in, twisting and removing. It still hardly removed anything. It was only when I dipped in my finger in and twisted it 3 or 4 times that it actually removed it and there was still some nail polish left near the skin.

Overall, it’s a good product, it’s easy to transport, it takes the hassle out of removing nail polish and makes your nails smell lovely. It’s also good for removing glitter polish and darker ones that may stain your nails, but it honestly takes as long as using pads and remover, plus its on the pricey side.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover is £4.99 from Boots or Superdrug
