I like a good beauty gimmick, and removing nail polish is one of my most hated beauty tasks. I’d heard a lot about the Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream, but I was kinda sceptical that it’d work, so I decided to buy it to give it a try, and see if it did work?
Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream
I ordered my Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream from BeautyMart which I believe is the only UK stockist, and it was £14.25. The brand that makes Remove and Chill are called The SIGN Tribe, and the Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream was actually launched with a completely different name, but they had to change their name for legal reasons.
They were originally called NailFix and Chill, which I’m guessing Netflix had a major problem with, especially as their fonts are almost identical too. The Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream is supposed to be the answer to our nail polish removal prayers, and is said to make nail polish removal considerably easier.
“REMOVE and CHILL is an innovative Nail Polish Remover Cream, which combines care, efficiency and an especially pleasant, fresh scent for the first time ever! The idea stems from a very clear need resulting from a somewhat trivial but still irritating problem: many people feel limited in their passion for nail polish because of the pesky smell of nail polish remover.
REMOVE and CHILL is here to solve the problem and allows nail polish removal at any time and place – without an unpleasant smell and with an extra-portion of care! Chipped and brittle nails are so yesterday!
Unlike conventional nail polish remover, Thanks to its special oil complex enriched with macadamia, almond, argan and sesame oil, vitamin E and premium waxes, the light cream formula is especially rich in care and pampers the cuticles as well as the nails. Use REMOVE and CHILL on any regular nail polish. (Doesn’t work on shellac or gel nails).”
The directions for the Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream are the following;
- Step 1: Use on any regular nail polish. Does not work on gel or shellac.
- Step 2: Apply a thick layer of REMOVE and CHILL on your nails. Cover all old nail polish with the cream.
- Step 3: Leave the cream on your nails: 1min for every nail polish layer, 3mins if you are using a base & top coat system. Relax & chill!
- Step 4: First massage, then remove the cream and nail polish with a dry cotton pad or tissue.
- Step 5: You are all set! Wash your hands after use.
So the big question is does it work? Yes and no. I always use a base coat before applying any polish, and I always apply at least one layer of top coat like the HK Girl Glisten & Glow, and I find that the cream doesn’t penetrate the nail polish to break it down properly.
If I don’t use the top coat, the cream works really well, but I won’t sacrifice my top coat as my polish just ends up chipping in a day. I’d personally prefer to use a peelable base coat, nail polish and a topcoat rather than mess about with this cream.
I do see why the Remove and Chill Nail Polish Eraser Cream would be more convenient than using nail polish remover, especially when travelling. I also really don’t like the scent of this cream. It does smell better than acetone, but the scent lingers on the fingers for ages, even after multiple washes.
However, peelable base coats like the Barry M Peelable Base Coat have completely revolutionised my nail polish removal process, and the base coat is just £4 and available from endless Barry M stockists as opposed to this removal cream which is nearly £15.
