I get asked all the time for recommendations for cruelty-free, vegan, and non-toxic nail polish remover and to be honest, I personally haven’t had any luck with finding one that works and for someone who does their nails 2-3 times a week, I’m really picky on my nail polish remover.
But that all changed when I got my hands on Sienna Byron Bay’s acetone-free, vegan nail polish remover wipes!
Vegan Nail Polish Remover Wipes – Sienna Byron Bay
What I like about it? These pre-soaked nail polish remover wipes are so easy to use. I like how well-saturated they are. It’s not dripping wet and it doesn’t dry too quickly like other nail polish remover wipes I’ve tried before. So it’s perfectly saturated!
I can completely remove the polish of up to 7 nails using one of the wipes. I think if the pad was slightly bigger, it could possibly remove all 10 of my fingernails with a single pad. It’s not that the wipes are too dry to use on the remaining 3 nails but it’s that the surface area of the wipes gets covered in nail polish that it removed. So you sort of run out of space to remove the rest of your nails. For me, I typically use up to 2 wipes to remove all the polish off of both hands.
It does leave an oily residue behind but it’s very easy to wash or wipe off.
How much is it? $18
How is it packaged? It comes with 40 wipes, neatly stacked in a glass jar.
What does it smell like? It doesn’t have the traditional chemical-y nail polish remover smell to it but it has a unique scent… I don’t know why but the smell sort of reminds me of cooking oil? Let me be clear here, it doesn’t smell bad, it just smells different. Ya get me?
Where can I get it? Online at Petit Vour.
Sticky Base Coat – Sienna Byron Bay ($25)
In addition to the vegan nail polish remover wipes, I got to also try out Sienna Byron Bay’s vegan sticky base coat.
This claims to protect the natural nail whilst assisting in long term color adhesion.
Just like a good face primer, I never go without a base coat. This one from Sienna Byron Bay is easy to use and works well with Sienna Byron Bay’s nail polish colors, as well as, other nail polish brands.
It adheres well underneath nail polish and it dries quickly to a glossy finish.
Sienna Byron Bay is a cruelty-free, vegan, and non-toxic nail polish brand. I’ve tried a handful of their beautiful and clean nail polish formula before, which you can find here and here. I would highly recommend their nail polish and now, their nail polish remover wipes and base coat!
