Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


The Best 85p I’ve ever spent.

If you’re a long term reader of Paperbacks & Postcards you’ll remember a post I did about this product back in the day, I thought that as I’ve got a lot more readers to inform nowadays I’d do an update.
This is basically a nail polish addict’s dream in a little pot, it’s used for removing nail polish and is particularly effective at removing those pesky glitter’s!
All you have to do is pop your finger inside of the pot and wiggle it around against the sponge for a little while and when you pull your finger out all of the nail polish is gone! It’s brilliant – I couldn’t use a nail polish remover pad/cotton wool to remove my nail polish now as this is so easy! Although, when removing a glitter polish you do have to leave your finger inside of the pot a little longer and rub it against the sponge more firmly but this is so much easier than trying to remove glitter polishes in the traditional way.
The product also has a pretty tolerable scent – not too chemically. The pot states that this product is peach scented – maybe chemical peaches! The only problem with it is that it leaves the nails quite dry so it’s good to have a nail oil/cream to pop on after you’ve used it.

You can buy Fast & Fruity Nail Polish Remover from Home Bargains for 85p

Have you tried this product? Or anything similar?


  1. Wow, will deff have to try this out, glitter polishes are awful to remove and for 85p, why the hell not?! xoxo

  2. Damn there not being a home bargains near me! This would be fab for me as I hate using cotton to take off my varnish!

  3. That's an amazing bargain! I've seen a few similar tubs before but didn't quite know how I would use them!

  4. I have this too, isn't it amazing! So much quicker and easier for removing nail polish :)

  5. I've used something similar in the past - definitely going to try this one out next time I run out of nail polish remover! xo

  6. Oh this sounds amazing ! I hate spending ages to remove my nail polish ! xx


  7. I've wondered about these before, but just never really thought they would work well... But I suppose it makes sense, right? and less waste!

  8. Blimey, I wish we had a home and bargains near us!

  9. I didn't even know anything like this existed, this is practically a revolutionary product! Will definitely be trying some out soon! (: x

  10. I've had this a few tims and I top it up with normal nail varnish remomver to make it last longer! x

  11. This looks good! I normally use cotton wool balls soaked in nail varnish remover and taped onto my nails for glitter polish, but this looks far less time consuming. x

  12. Oh wow I didn't know these things still existed! I remember purchasing one from the dollar store when I was young and it worked really long! You make me want to buy one specifically to remove stubborn glitter nail polishes x
