Yes, you will need to place your finger inside the container to remove the nail polish.

This is not the type of nailpolish remover that you soak your fingers inside the product container. You must apply the product to a cotton pad. Remove polish using this method. I hope this helps add to the product description.

Nope, finger won't fit. :-) Don't be deceived by the wide cap; the bottle has a small opening (1/8 inch in diameter, or 3 mm in diameter). Thus, you can safely tip the bottle (to moisten you pad) to use as little/much as you need, with little fear of dripping nor overusing.

I originally took a trip out to Sephora to purchase the one and only nail polish remover I used which was the Sephora by Opi remover (purple bottle) however, they were out of stock. I was hesitant to try this one but I gave it a shot and boy am I happy I did. I absolutely LOVE it! It's quick to remove even the most stubborn polish and I love that it doesn't have a strong smell.

Hi! It doesn't take much to remove your polish so a bottle should last you quite a while. I've had mine for a month and change my polish about twice a week. My bottle barely looks like any has been used. Also, it doesn't have a strong alcohol smell so I don't think evaporation should be a problem. Hope this helps!

I've had a bottle for over a year and just had to reorder my second bottle. I don't do my own nails that often, but it has lasted me a good amount of time. I do keep it in a climate controlled area, but as long as you're not storing it somewhere too hot, I don't think it would dissipate.

answer 8
The bottle was smaller than I was expecting, but it has a secure top. I am sure that you won't have problems with it drying out, but I have gone through my bottle way too fast. I change my polish a lot, so I really need something that lasts a lot longer. I find that I have to use a ton of product to get the polish completely off of my nails. I've only had it a month and it's almost gone.

Question
Is this the same as the one sold in Europe?
I bought an amazing Sephora brand nail polish remover in France. The bottle in the picture has the same name as the one I have here but it doesn't look the same. What I mean is that the one I bought here es a little jar that has a sponge that is completely soaked in nai polish remover on the inside. They also sell a regular nail polish remover that you use normally (with a separate cotton ball).

What I am wondering is if this one has the sponge on the inside (which makes it much easier to use as you just stick your finger in there for a few seconds and you don0t have to mess with the cotton balls) or if it is the regular kind (just a bottle filled with nail polish remover).

This one is the regular one meaning you pour it on a cotton ball to remove the nail polish. I noticed alot of the sephora stores tend to run out of it fast. I don't know if its the same formulation as the one in France, I know they have different regulations.

Hi! This remover contains acetone, which will dissolve your acrylic nails! If a remover doesn't say on the front of the bottle whether or not it contains acetone, just check out the ingredients. If you see acetone, run away!!! :). Hope this helps!
