The Product I’ve Been Waiting For: NailFix & Chill Nail Varnish Remover Cream

Having a freshly manicured and beautifully painted set of nails makes me feel like a best version of myself; if they’re chipped, flaking or generally a bit worse for wear then I want to hide my hands away until I’ve the time to get them sorted. I’ve no doubt that I’ll probably spend a fair few thousands of pounds on manicures and nail treatments in the next few decades, but it really does make all the difference and work as a little pick-me-up when I’m feeling overwhelmed. My nail stash is overflowing with all number of strengthening base coats, nude long-wear colours and cuticle remover tools – but one thing I feel like I’ve been waiting for my whole nail-loving adult life is the NailFix & Chill Nail Varnish Remover Cream.

I first saw this pop up on my Instagram feed a fair few months ago and it was the ‘Netflix-inspired’ design that first caught my attention. (I think I spend more time watching Netflix than any other task tbh.) But when I saw it was a cream that you applied to nails to remove polish, wiping away the excess without the overwhelming stench of GCSE Physics, I really did need some ASAP. The wait has been a painful one, but now it’s finally in my hands I can reassure you it was absolutely worth the wait and lived up to my every expectation.

NailFix & Chill Nail Varnish Remover Cream

This innovative acetone-free cream actually provides nourishing care (rather than taking away all the goodness and moisture like traditional nail varnish removers) while smelling good too. Infused with a complex of Macadamia, Almond and Argan oils alongside Vitamin E, this actually helps to keep cuticles and nails in tip-top condition – a saviour if you change your polish as much as me. I really suffer with breakage and my nails split so often I’ve resorted to hardcore treatments and gel nails just to help strengthen them, but this may offer a great alternative.

The main ingredient in traditional nail polish removers is acetone, which is essentially a paint stripper. Super dry and damaged nails will get drier and more brittle with acetone exposure, so it’s not the polish that’s making your nails look worse for wear – but in fact what you’re using to take it off. If your nails are prone to splitting or flaking, then acetone will only exacerbate this and cause further separation; to break the cycle it’s vital to take a break and treat your nails to some more conditioning care.

To use the NailFix & Chill Nail Varnish Remover Cream you simply pop a small amount onto each nail, leave to work for a few minutes and wipe away with a cotton pad; be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before continuing with your usual manicure routine. It’s that simple: no mess, no fuss, no leftover bits of polish – I was super surprised at how effective it was and how the cream actually left my nails looking better than they did before. It more than exceeded my expectations. Magic!

At £12.95 the tube is also affordable, lasts a long time and is suitable even for traveling – taking away pots of nail varnish remover can be a faff, reduce your baggage allowance and even lead to nasty spills (we’ve all been there!) but this is as simple as chucking in a tube of moisturiser. It’s one of those products that makes you wonder why nobody has thought of it before, and I’ve no doubt it will lead to a whole flurry of copycats in the next year or two.

Looking at my nails today after using Nailfix & Chill last night, they’ve never looked better after removing polish. Usually they look dry, brittle and in need of a quick coat of something fancy to boost the overall appearance of my hands; but today they’re sitting proudly with just a base coat on for the first time in months, so if that’s not a great testimonial I don’t know what is.

In a nutshell, buy one of these tubes immediately.

If you’re a nail addict, or simply love an innovation or to reduce faff, you’ll not be disappointed.

The NailFix & Chill Nail Varnish Remover Cream is available exclusively from BeautyMart, priced £12.95.

    I’ve been looking at this for a while and saw it demo-ed (can’t remember which instagram account) and now with this blogpost review, I really feel that I need it in my life

    Oooh I love the look of this! The packaging is cool and this is definitely something I need (but haven’t thought about in the past). My nails always look so horrid after gels or taking off normal nail varnish and sometimes I like to leave them bare for a while before painting them again so this would keep them looking lovely during that ‘in between’ phase x

    I must have been living under the rock… It is the first time I heard about the varnish remover cream! Nail polish removers kind of damages my nails and good to hear that this one is filled with oils and vitamin e. Added to the wishlist, I will definitely consider buying it!

    I think I should ask my friend to being me some from the UK. My nails are so brittle and as soon as I start with nail polish and remover they break off, maybe using this instead will help. My naked nails makes me sad

    Have ordered!! I use polish regularly and the traditional remover does strip my nails making them very dry and flaky so fingers crossed this will help. Also love the design, so eye catching. Kareema x
