Sorry I haven't posted last week except Monday (it's a scheduled post)! It's been an insane couple of weeks, good and bad. I'm glad it's almost over. I have mentioned about Zoya Remove+ Nail Polish Remover in one of my monthly empties, April 2014. Thanks to a friend I was able to try a sample size. In all honesty at that time, I didn't think it was that special. I thought it was the same as other nail polish removers. Since it was a sample size, I decided to buy a full size and review from there.

Thoughts: Liked I said above, I have used the sample size and didn't think that highly. I just thought it removed like every other nail polish remover.
It comes with a flip top where you can push the remover up onto the cotton. In all honesty, this is the main reason I purchased this. I thought I would re-use the container for other removers.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a strong scent. It doesn't smell like every other polish removers. It smells less chemically and more refreshing. I would say it smells more on the floral side. Secondly, I love the packaging. It's extremely well-made and sturdy. The top you can open and close. If you turn it to the closed side, you cannot push the top to get the remover. It's great for travel but you do have to be careful how you store it. I'm sure if the bag moves, the top can turn to the open side. Not only that, the color of the remover is gorgeous. It's extremely attractive. Only thing is once it gets on the cotton, it's clear. Third, it removes like every other polishes. I tend to soak the nails for several seconds with the soaked cotton pad then remove. I honestly haven't noticed any difference. Then again, on the other hand, I tend to use cream polishes. I find glitter polishes hard to remove and for that reason, I tend to avoid them. I've read online that this remover is a lot easier to remove glitter polishes. I cannot give a fair opinion on this. I have tried on textured polishes. I do have to say it removes a little bit better but not much. Lastly, I read online that people's cuticles look softer and there's no yellow on the nails. I've been using this remover since May and I noticed yellowing on the nails. I do have to say it's not as yellow as before but it can be a combination of many things. I started using OPI Nail Envy in Original which has strengthened my nails tremendously. I hardly have breakage because of that product. For that reason, I feel like my nail beds isn't as yellow as before because of OPI. I still see some breakage and dryness on my cuticles. I have dry skin and lotions/moisturizers help. I also use cuticles removers, Julep Essential Cuticle Oil, which I have never before.
