Beauty to Go: Nailed!

I never pay for a manicure.  I've very hard on my fingernails and I don't want to waste the time/money on getting a professional manicure that will only last a few hours (trust me on this: the only time I got a manicure, I managed to break a nail AND chip my paint by the end of the day...not cool).  No...instead of throwing away good money on a salon paint job for my fingers, I do my own manis...usually every Sunday.

Now that Summer is here, my nail color choices have brightened up a bit.  In the colder months, I love a nice, dark set of nails, but Summer means color, lightness, and fun.  Regardless of the season, the one task I hate more than breaking a nail is removing nail polish.  I seem to go through a ton of cotton balls, the nail polish remover stinks, and it seems like an entirely messy and tedious process.

I recently received some new acetone free nail polish remover pads from LA Fresh, and I have to say: they make removing polish a little less awful.  One pad was all it took to remove all the layers of color and top coat from all ten of my nails--so much less messy and wasteful than my traditional cotton ball and bottle of remove routine.  Plus they didn't smell as bad as the normal junk I use--instead they have a nicer orange scent.  As a bonus, the remover actually helps provide moisture and conditioning to the nails--something my poor fingertips surely needed.

What I also like is that the nail polish remover pads are super portable.  Each pad is individually wrapped so you can throw one in your purse, your gym bag, or suitcase much more easily than a bottle of nail polish remover and a bag of cotton balls!

LA Fresh Eco-Beauty Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover Pads will set you back $5 for a pack of 8 pads or $10 for 18 and are available online.
