To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These easily took off layers of fingernail polish that I had a hard time getting off with liquid acetone nail polish remover. They feel a bit oily, which I didn't expect, but I like how they feel and smell different than other removers I've tried. I almost tossed out the metal foil seal before reading the instructions, but the instructions say to keep it on top of the pads in the container to help it not dry out, and that seems to be working.
DOES NOT DESERVE RATING. THIS ITEM IS TOTALLY WORTHLESS. IT IS DRIED OUT AND WHEN YOU CAN FINALLY GET IT OPEN, IT HAS NO USE AT ALL. THE PADS ARE TOTALLY DRY AND CANNOT REMOVE NAIL POLISH. ONLY GOOD FOR THE TRASH.
I received the product in quick order. That was great!!! I should have left it there…yes, these pads remove nail polish eventually but have this weird oily residue on them that I don’t care for. Didn’t wash off easily either. Just wasn’t my bag… some people may love the oily residue.., best wishes
I purchased this product to use when traveling. It is so convenient I plan to use it all the time and reduce the need for having a bottle of nail polish around. It is simple to use and easy to store, no worry about spilling nail polish!
4.0 out of 5 starsNo-Mess Polish Remover Pads Make Quick Work of Nail Lacquer
Reviewed in the United States on 27 July 2021
If you've ever knocked over a bottle of polish remover while working on your nails (as I have!), you'll appreciate the convenience of these no-mess MIILYE Nail Polish Remover Pads. This 80-piece set includes two plastic boxes with 40 pads each. Depending on the size/length of your nails, you should be able to remove all of the polish from both hands (or feet) with one or two pads.
The two boxes come in a resealable plastic pouch, and each box has a foil seal over the compartment holding the pre-soaked pads to keep them moist until use. The pads are a good size -- slightly larger than 2" square -- but surprisingly thin; I accidentally pulled out 2 stuck-together pads the first time I used them and didn't realize it until I was halfway through cleaning my nails. Despite their thinness, they work just as well (if not better) than using thicker cotton pads with a bottle of polish remover.
I'm really happy with the performance of these pads, their ease of use, and the gentleness and light scent of the polish remover. However, I'm a little concerned that they may dry out before I get even partway through each pack. The directions indicate the "aluminum sealing film" should be left in place to cover the saturated pads between uses; however, it doesn't reseal once you've opened it (it has a tendency to curl upward, since that's the direction you pull to open it), and there isn't enough overlap that you'd be able to to tuck the foil around the edges of the compartment. So you end up with a loose flap of foil that doesn't keep the pad compartment sealed, a plastic box that isn't airtight, and no excess polish remover liquid to replenish any that may evaporate between uses. I only get a mani/pedi every 2 to 3 months, so it'll be a while before I can determine whether the pads remain properly moistened between uses.
Overall, these MIILYE Nail Polish Remover Pads deserve 5 stars for their performance, but I've docked one star because I'm worried the non-resealing/non-airtight plastic boxes will allow the pads to dry out before all of them are used. On the bright side, at least this two-box set means I have a second unopened box ready to go if the first box dries out prematurely!
