I often chip a nail at work and want to do a touch up but it is such a pain keeping remover and pads at work as I work from various offices. When I saw these Style Pen Nail Polish Remover Pads for $1.25 for 32 pads at Dollarama, I had to try them. They are small enough that I can keep them in my makeup bag and not worry about nail polish remover leaking over everything. Even better, they are scented so don’t stink when used.
They will never replace regular polish remover for me, they just are not strong enough, especially if you use a hard to remove polish like glitter but for a quick fixup on the go they are great!
The scent (and lack of overpowering remover scent) means they are even better when out and about because you don’t want to smell like chemical remover. They come in a variety of scents, my local Dollarama has orange, lemon and strawberry but you can also find Style Pen remover pads in vanilla, coconut and blueberry.
They have some kind of moisturizer in them too, they left my nail slightly oily and did not dry out my cuticles like many removers or leave that nasty white powdery look of others. They are acetone free which means you won’t be wrecking your nails with acetone, especially if you can’t rinse them right away too.
Style Pen Nail Polish Remover: Rating
I give them 3/5 – lifesaver on the run but Style Pen remover pads won’t be replacing my regular routine for removal at home.
