Nail varnish removers can be hit and miss.
Some will dissolve polish in seconds but leave you with parched cuticles and flaky nails (acetone can be pretty potent stuff), while others just don't seem to scratch the surface - especially if you're a fan of wearing glitter.
*Cue scrubbing for what feels like hours*
But if there's one thing we've learnt at ELLE HQ, it's that there are so many gentle yet effective formulas all vying for a space inside your bathroom cabinet, whether you're an on-the-go kinda gal or the type who likes to make an evening of a DIY mani (basically what Sundays were made for, right)?
