I used to love to wear nail polish all the time. That means that I also need a very good nail polish remover.
The definition of “good” for this kind of product can differ a lot from one person to the next.
Some people are looking for something that will not dry their cuticles, others for something that has a nice smell, others for something that does the job fast and as clean as possible.
I am a member of the later. I don’t care all that much about the smell as long as nail polish is removed quickly and with as little mess as possible.
As a mom who wants to move fast because and not give her little bundle of joy the opportunity to play around with something that can be so harmful to him as nail polish removers can be.
So today, I am presenting one that does just that: dissolves the nail polish very fast and with as little mess as possible. Given the fact that I love nail polishes with vibrant colors and strong pigmentation this is not a job for any nail polish remover.

My opinion about the Cien nail polish remover:
I like very much the way you can dosage it. It is safe, economical and convenient, but it is a bit more difficult to use if you do not have cotton pads.
The classic one stinks a lot like acetone. It takes the nail polishes off easily but it dries the cuticles quite bad so I use an oil for my nails immediately after. The exception is when I put on another nail polish. In this case, I apply the oil after the manicure is done and the nail polish is dry.
I like that I will be able to refill the bottle. I read a few reviews that the pump stopped working properly but nothing went wrong with mine, and I tried refilling it 3 times already.
What kind of nail polish remover do you like? Do you have a favorite nail polish remover? Did you find anything that is as effective as acetone without the specific smell? If so, let me know in the comments. I’d love to try it.
