Hello beauties 🙂
How are you doing today? Our schedule was so tight last week that I could not plan a surprise for my hubby’s birthday party. Our carpet was getting cleaned, and it was like shifting to another apartment. Even my daughter had to stay at a friend’s apartment as per carpet cleaning guy’s suggestion. Also, my man is working from home till New Year. This year end could not be more adventurous & tiring for me. Anyway, let’s focus on our today’s review which is about OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover.
$4-$5 for 4 Fl Oz, price varies store to store
Acetone, Aqua/Water/Eau, Methyl Soyate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Limonene, Parfum/Fragrance, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Isopropyl Palmitate, Macrocystis Pyrifera (Kelp) Extract, CI 60725 (Violet 2)
Provides superior performance without the drying effects of harsh removers! Sweeps away even the darkest shades of nail lacquer, while leaving cuticles soft and smooth instead of parched and dry looking.
My Experience with OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover:
The nail lacquer remover comes in sturdy, semi-opaque, plastic bottle packaging with a safety cap. It does have a wide opening which is tricky. It has very sweet fragrance, and not a pungent acetone smell like other nail paint removers. I appreciate this property even though I am a bit hesitant to use it on regular basis, considering the ill-effects of acetone on our nails.
Honestly I was very curious to try out OPI lacquer remover because I am an ardent fan of their nail products and I was really fascinated by the formula of this product. The pale lavender fluid fascinated me further, which smells so nice and mild. Talking about its performance, it is a super fast nail lacquer remover. Yes gals, it removes even toughest of nail lacquers within seconds without drying my nails or the skin around my nails. I only need 2-3 drops of this lacquer remover to work on both my hands and feet. Can you imagine?
Even my friend borrowed it from me to remove her gel nail paint and she was so surprised to see how fast and efficiently it removed her gel nail paint and glitters. Moreover I also noticed how it removes those nasty black and blue nail paints without leaving any stain. It leaves behind just clean and clear nails. Wow! It does not even sting or give any cooling sensation.
However, I am still concerned about the acetone, hence I think it would be wiser to limit its usage to weekly or monthly sessions. But it does have soothing ingredients like aloe, kelp extract which help to counterbalance the drying effect of acetone I feel that we can take a chance with this product. I haven’t noticed any ill-effects of this nail lacquer remover on my nails or skin so far and it’s been a month of usage. Plus, I have been using it for 3-4 times a week.
I would definitely recommend this lacquer remover to every nail product junkie especially if you are fine with acetone formula. You will be amazed to see how your nails feel equally lustrous and healthy post using this product. I might get it again as it is super fast in removing the lacquer.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
