Review- Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover!

I'm someone who loves doing my own nails at home.  I have a pretty decent sized nail polish collection and I like changing colors a few times a month.  But, the worst part about doing your own nails, is removing the old nail polish first.  Anyone else with me?  I've tried using cotton balls and it's pretty awful because the cotton ball will just start falling apart and sticking to everything.  I've tried the cotton pads which work a little better but it's still messy and I go through about 4-5 pads before I get all the nail polish off.  Then there's the nail polish remover itself.  Sometimes it will just spill everywhere.  I tried Deborah Lippman's The Stripper which is a great name by the way, and is probably the best nail polish remover I've ever tried in liquid form.  It is expensive at almost $20 a bottle.  I've gone through about 2 bottles in a couple of years but I just always felt like there's got to be an easier way.

I went to Sephora and saw this bottle that promises to magically remove your old nail polish by dipping your fingers in one at a time and rotating the bottle/finger in just a minute.  I was totally skeptical, but I'm always open to trying new things.  And HOLY SMOKES does this thing work!  I swear it's like magic.

Inside is this foam pad and you put your finger in one at a time and move it around for about 15 seconds.  (insert your own jokes here) lol.

It completely removed my old nail polish in about 15 seconds.

I showed my husband and he was so unimpressed.  He says, "My mom was big into nail polish in the 80s and she used something like this all the time."  I'm like WHAT?!  I've never seen this before in my life.  I've never seen it in Target or any of the drugstores I've been to, so this is completely new to me.  Have I been living under a rock?

Anyway here is a video I took.  Please ignore the mumbling, I like to talk to myself a lot!

Since I've only tried it once, I can't say how long this bottle will last.  But for $9.50 for a bottle, I will definitely buy again even if I go through this in a few months.  It's so worth it!
