Beauty Bargain: Pretty Quik Instant Nail Polish Remover

When I initially heard about the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover, I got really excited.  I thought the Bourjois must have come up with something innovative and mind-blowing for this product and couldn’t wait for it to be released.

Then it was released, I read reviews, and thought, wow, there’s nothing innovative about a sponge with a hole in soaked in nail polish remover.  I remember borrowing a product with the exact same concept from my mother about 12 years ago.  So no way was I shelling out £4.99 for some nail polish remover in a sponge.  But it did get me to thinking about how convenient and easy that type of nail polish remover is so I ended up finding this lovely dupe for £2.49 at Superdrug!

Same concept at the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover, simply stick a finger in and twist (hmmm).  Pretty Quik does indeed remove nail polish pretty quick, har har.  It is not fruit scented unfortunately, but that’s not really a deal breaker for me.  It contains Vitamin E which is a plus in minimising drying and damage to nails. It also comes in a bitter flavor version if you are a nail biter and need a deterrent.

Have you tried the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover or any of the subsequent dupes?  What did you think?

  1. I’m nearly out of my standard Superdrug nail varnish remover, when it runs out I’ll see if I can find this! x

    • I found it in Boots and Superdrug! It’s just a bit nicer than messing with wool pads, no fuzz on your fingers x 🙂

  2. I used to use these kind of products a lot a few years ago (before Bourjois’ version came out), but stopped because I heard they were damaging to the nails – I guess the ones that were so popular back then weren’t as gentle as the newer formulas – I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for this one, though, looks like a pretty good alternative to Bourjois’ version 🙂 xx

    • I guess the remover has to be quite strong to take the polish off quickly, but the Quik brand has Vitamin E in it so hopefully that helps counteract the damage a bit! xx

Leave me a comment, I love reading them and will try to reply to each one!
