What I hate most about applying nail polishes isn’t the tedious application itself. No, I hate the removing part even more. It’s very boring, unproductive and the smell of the acetone bugs me. So when you see me around with chipped nail polish, don’t even bother asking. It’s obvious that I was too lazy to remove it myself or even go to a decent nail spa to have it removed. LOL!
When I saw this in my April BDJ Box,
I was intrigued, to say the least. It looks promising but I never really bothered rummaging through my stash to get this Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes whenever I need to remove my worn out nail color. I only decided to give it a go when I had troubles removing the indelible ink after voting. Apparently, my usual Php15/bottle acetone couldn’t remove the ink from the sides of my nails so I tried this one out.

Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes
Nail Buddy! No mess, no spill – just easy to use. Meet your nail polish remover buddy! Candi helps you remove your nail polish hassle-free. It doesn’t just help you but it keeps you from dry nails and fingers. Its acetone-free feature transforms your nail time into fun time.
Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes come in a small white plastic container. It has a screw lid top that closes really tightly to make sure that the chemical in the remover won’t evaporate. At the back of the container are the product details and the manufacturing date. Inside the container is a stack of thin wipes drenched in the acetone-free remover itself.
One cool thing about Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes is that they smell nothing like acetone – absolutely no harsh odor! It has a strong artificial citrus-y scent though. The scent it highly tolerable – just don’t use it inside the car or other closed/isolated space. I once used this while inside the car.. the smell made my brother dizzy. LOL! Each wipe is extremely thin. Although I have to admit that despite being thin, never did it get ripped into pieces when used. Kudos for being super sturdy!
It works at par with other nail polish removers that contain acetone. It did very little to the indelible ink but it does a decent job removing nail polishes. They’re very easy to use. Need to redo a nail but you’re scared of using acetone as it may damage the other nails? Well, these wipes solve exactly that. I can remove nail polish from one nail without getting acetone on the others because each wipe contains only the needed amount. It doesn’t drip with nail polish-removing chemicals when pressed. And like ordinary nail polish removers, this doesn’t leave those nasty white stains after use.
The downside is that it’s hard to use when removing nail polish from specific areas like the sides of the nail or under it. I tried folding it but it’s still a bit tricky. Another thing about this is that, it dries up incredibly fast so always make sure to close the cap tightly to prevent air from getting in.
TIP: Wrap a sheet around each nail and let it soak for a while before rubbing them. This softens the nail polish thus making it faster to remove. Just don’t leave it on a nail for too long before rubbing because the sheets/wipes dry out relatively fast.
Overall, I like how convenient it is to use and how it doesn’t affect the other nails. It’s also a great thing that is it relatively affordable. What more can I say, BDJ Box does well in introducing new brands and products that are really worth repurchasing. I’m definitely stocking up on this nail remover wipes when I continue my “Nail of the Day” segment. If you like painting your nails, I’m sure you’ll appreciate this too. 🙂
Price: Php 65 (30 pads)
