The £1 Wonder: Primark's Nail Varnish Remover Twist Pot

Always being one to try out the latest beauty hype or gizmo, I was especially grateful to be greeted by a little nail varnish remover pot sitting in my room when I returned back to High Wycombe for a visit. My mum, knowing my deep-running nail varnish obsession, had lovingly bought it for me to try out. Not having tried much of Primark's 'P.S Love' beauty range, I was sceptical about the quality of the product but definitely couldn't argue with the £1 price.

The twist pot consists of a sponge pre-soaked with nail varnish remover. You simply dip your finger into the pot, twist and wiggle it around a bit, and the nail varnish comes straight off. It really is as simple as that; it takes off your nail varnish within a few seconds, and doesn't leave your nails stained at all (something I was worried about for a product so cheap).

The remover is quite harsh, but does not dry your nails, cuticles or fingers out any more than your regular nail varnish remover. I have also tested this little pot with glitter nail varnish too; while it does take a little longer, it still works a treat. In fact, it's probably the easiest and least time-consuming way of taking off glitter varnish I have found so far; there's no waiting around with tin-foil on your fingers (the classic trick), or getting cotton wool stuck on your nail!

I was worried that I'd love this product just because it's so cheap, but it is genuinely something worth picking up. It's quick, efficient, and quite simply, a great product. Plus, the all-in-one pot is incredibly handy if you're off on any travels; it can be used over again with no worries of it spilling. Primark have truly created a winner with this twist pot, and is definitely something from their beauty range that is worth getting (even if other products seem dubious).

  1. I have this! It's awesome, although I have used it hardcore and after a while some bits of the sponge come out of your finger. But it's not too bad. I think it is a sign I need a new one x
