I first found this product through Instagram. I can’t quite remember which user it was (since my old account is gone..sigh), but I remember them saying that it was really good and very inexpensive on Ebay. Glitter polish is notoriously difficult to remove, so I thought a product test would be harmless since the cost was under $3.
Like the foil method, the purpose of these soakers pods is to prevent the nail polish remover from evaporating too quickly.
I think the effectiveness of these tubs depends on the quality of nail polish remover that you use. During my test, I used a soaked cotton pad and left the pods on for 5 minutes. Not all fingers were completely clean. But after repeating the soaking process (not recorded on YouTube) with another application of remover, I waited an additional 5 minutes and all of the glitter was gone from my thumb.
Would I recommend it? Yes. It may not be an AMAZING must-have for those who love glitter polish, but it does work. And the >$5 price tag gives this a thumbs up from me!
