Here’s proof it exist(ed):
Please excuse the cue-tip in the bottle. I dropped it in accidentally few weeks ago.
Okay, I’m going to digress a little here. I haven’t seen any ZA removers anywhere lately. I know ZA still makes nail polishes and the works, but Singapore doesn’t seem to bring them in anymore.
Anyway, “The cute scent of oranges”? Nah-ah! You’ll get a whiff of a pungent remover smell first before the slight hint of orange comes. It felt pretty harsh on the nails and skin, removal speed was alright.
So when I finally got to try Sally Hansen’s, I could immediately tell the difference. The scent was subtler, and had a pleasant aloe scent too. The removal speed was faster, and it had less of the drying effect. In all, I only used 2 cotton pads to remove the 5 layers of polishes (base + 2 coats of colour + 1 coat of clear glitter + topcoat) from all ten nails! To me, that’s amazing!! The best part was, it did not strip the shine from my previously buffed nails.
I was careful about getting another polish remover, as I did not want to damage my already dry, brittle, peeling and ripped nails any further. I had acrylic gel extensions (think that’s what they are) in June, and taking them off was a PAIN!
