I have used acetone-based nail polish remover all my life. To me, Karma Natural’s Nail Polish Remover made from soy bean oil just seemed like a foreign entity to me. I thought, there was no way this is going to work. Boy, was I wrong!
Let’s start from the beginning. When I went to purchase my RMS Beauty Nail Polish, the sales person gave me this nail polish remover to remove the nail polish I had tested in the store. I was shocked that it not only took off the nail polish, but left my nails even a little bit moisturized.
Karma Organics is an American brand that creates organic and environmentally-concious products, including nail polish and skincare. This nail polish remover comes in three scents: unscented, tea tree oil, and lavender. It contains only 3 ingredients: propylene carbonate, soybean oil methyl exter, and tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E). As stated on their website, this product is non-toxic, free of petroleum ingredients, derived from farm crops, and packaged in 100% recycled glass bottles.
Sounds super good for you, but is it actually any good? I am happy to answer, “Yes, it is!” Dab it onto a cotton ball and let it soak for a couple seconds on each nail and the nail polish comes right off. What I love most is that after the removal, your nails don’t look completely dry and lifeless. Your fingernails might feel a little oily which is a feeling you might have to get used to. I usually just wash my hands afterwards and my nails feel great. One small con is that even though I bought the odourless one, the smell is still pungent. I guess, you can’t expect a solvent to smell like fresh air.
VERDICT: I love how my nails feel after using this polish remover, which is not something I usually can say. I think I am hooked. I can’t go back to use acetone-based nail polish removers.
