Kiko is one of those brands that doesn't get enough credit in the makeup industry. I think the problem is that we don't find it in our local Superdrug or Boots so everyone gets a little distracted from it for one reason or another. Why bother looking at another brand I can't see in person when I have hundreds of them on my doorstep? I suppose it makes sense but trust me when I say it deserves more hype! In the past few months I have been trying a huge variety of their products and from skincare to makeup Kiko never failed!
Now, after last week's post on my new nail polish from Primark, I thought it would make only sense to feature a good nail varnish remover. Something fast, efficient, not messy and easy to use even on the go. The solution? Well, apparently I found it.

I have always been disappointed when using this specific 'dip system' where you put one finger in at a time in a moist container and rub it a few times to get all the product away. I tried a few different brands when I was in a hurry at a meeting/ job interview and my nails looked awful. Nothing sucks more than putting all your trust in one thing that then doesn't work and having to spend the rest of the evening trying to hide your chipped nails. Yes, partially it was my fault because I left it all for the last minute. (but that's beside the point, right? ;) ).
My 'usual' removers are in a normal bottle and I just pour them onto a cotton pad and then rub off the nail polish. They work well but they're not great for travel since it would be a little too much to carry around. The Kiko Nail Polish Remover though gives the same result. It doesn't matter even if you have glitter on your nails, it gets rid of it all. I love the fact that it leaves my nails clean yet not dehydrated or dry. It retails for £4.40 so it's quite affordable too.
I think it's essential to find something that will get rid of any nail polish no matter what crazy shade you wear, especially now in summer when we all go a little wild with colours.
Perfect for travel
Leaves no residue
Doesn't leave nails feeling dry
Can be used on toe nails & hand nails
Maybe the smell is a little overpowering at first
but as long as you don't stick your nose into the bottle (like I did) you'll be fine.
What's your favourite nail polish remover?
Have you ever tried this one from Kiko?
ps- Sorry for horrific background but my table would have taken too long to clean
so I just went a little cray and improvised. Hope you don't mind! #oops
