Studio 35 Beauty Nail Polish Remover Wipes

Studio 35 isn't a brand I'd ever heard of until I went to Walgreens as we don't have Walgreens OR Studio 35 here in the UK.  Shame for us because these Nail Polish Remover Pads are literally the best nail polish removers I've ever, ever used.

I always wear nail polish as I'm not keen on my natural nails.  I bit them until I was aged about 20 so you could say I've always had a bit of an iffy relationship with them.  They aren't long because they tend to break but they are a nice length and most of the time a nice shape, sort of.  I change my polish regularly because I don't like it when it chips, for a start you can see the weakened nail underneath which is what I'm trying to cover up!

Anyway back to the wipes.  Like I said, I got these in Walgreens, I like that they are in little individual sealed sachets so they are brilliant for travel, unlike those little pots of nail wipes you can get which tend to dry out quickly and the material is so thin that you can only do one or two nails with them at most.

On the box it says that you only need one wipe for all 10 nails.  I have to say that I was sceptical having only known the aforementioned pots of wipes, so I didn't really believe what they'd written.  How wrong was I?!  The pads have been soaked in remover and the material is thick so they don't rip or tear and I only needed to wipe the nail a couple of times to get all the polish off.  Very pleased!

If I'd known how good they were I'd have really stocked up, as it is I use them sparingly usually when I'm going on holiday because they are so good for travel.  However, I've got a trip to New York (minus kids) coming up which I'm very excited about, and these babies are definitely on my shopping list.

They're the best!  Studio 35 Nail Polish Remover Pads

Avon Mark Gel Shine Nails - Dazzle Pink

Im sitting here watching Son's 2 and 3 in the swimming pool as No 3 has only really just learned to swim so I've got my lifeguard head on.  I thought I'd share my latest nail colour.

It's from Avon.  It's from the new Mark range and it's a Gel Shine one.  I love these Avon Gel Shine's I rarely wear anything else these days.  This one is called Dazzle Pink and it's fast becoming a second favourite to Lavender Sky which I've already written about this year.

Dazzle Pink plus Top Coat

Dazzle Pink is a bit of a misleading name actually because as far as I can see it's not very pink, it's more of a light peach colour and it's got a very slight shimmer to it hence the 'Dazzle' part of the name.  Still a lovely colour though.  One of my favourite pink ones is ASAP Pink from Avon which is a 30 second drying one, that's great.

Two coats is a definite, plus the Mark Gel Shine top coat which is on my list of favourite top coats.  It's worth investing in the top coat because it does help stop chipping and it is very shiny and I love shiny nails so I've always got some in.  Actually, I stock loads because I always have customers wanting it, I recently recommended it on my Avon FB page and it went a bit nuts.  These polishes are usually about £7 but quite often half price, so as I've said before, worth stocking up and I often have excess nail polish stock in my eBay shop going for less than that, eBay is a great place to check these things out.

As you can see from the photos above my nails aren't long, I do try but they break, but that's fine, I don't mind having them short, this is a nice colour for short nails I think.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Autumn/Winter Gel Shine shades which should be in the next lot of  First Look brochures.  It's hard to think about that whilst the sun is shining here but it'll be here before we know it.  Actually sooner, we go home to the rain tomorrow!

Love, Maria
