I received a Deborah Lippmann Stripper to Go in my December Glossybox along with a Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle nail varnish. You might have seen my post around Christmas time about the nail varnish, gorgeous stuff. But considering I hadn’t bothered to remove it since then, I thought this would be a good time to try out the Stripper to Go mitt.
Now, I don’t really wear glitter nail polishes. I can’t even remember the last time I wore a glitter polish so I was dreading the removal process. Things started off well, I put the mitt on my right hand index finger and used it to remove the nail polish on my left hand. It was swiping right off until I got to the last pinky nail, that one took a little elbow grease.
Then I removed the mitt and took off the rest of the varnish on the index finger (which was pretty much off from being in the mitt). So I had four nails left to do on my right hand.
And I could not get the polish to budge on any nails. I tried scrubbing them with the mitt, I tried putting the mitt on the individual nails and removing it that way, but it just would not remove any more polish. So I ended up using cotton pads and my Superdrug Brand Nourishing Nail Polish Remover (the pink one!) and got the remaining polish off.
Now I have heard people raving about these mitts, so I’m not sure why I had such trouble doing all 10 nails with mine. I expect this would work beautifully for non-glitter polishes. But at £14 a pop for a 6 mitt pack from House of Fraser I think I will be sticking to my Superdrug remover.
Have you tried out your Stripper to Go mitt? Did you get all 10 nails done in one go?
