why i buy: nailing the perfect solution
let’s face it: nail polish remover stinks. the price we pay for pretty, manicured nails is putting up with the cantankerous alcohol smell of polish remover that, when smudged off with a cotton ball, reveals the dry, brittle nails beneath the shiny bursts of color. it’s a reality that we just deal with.
a few months ago, after a long day of household chores, i noticed that my manicure was in need of a massive overhaul. i sent my husband to the store to grab me some polish remover. not having any clue about cutex or sally hansen or other nail care brands, he came back from whole foods with the random bottle with a craftsy font, that looked like a generic sample of homemade crunchiness.
i rolled my eyes. “what the hec is this?”
then i used it. total game changer. no toxic smell—in fact a semi-pleasant hint of vanilla. no drying alcohol (the active ingredient in fruit acid). and believe it or not, it actually worked!
this was a total random revelation…and the product that launched this blog. no, it’s not a cure for cancer. it’s trivial at best. but wow, it’s a great product that solved a lifelong problem.
