NailSavers - NailMates Review

I have another interesting review for you all today! Today's post is about NailMates. I never even knew these existed until recently when I was asked to try them out, and I was certainly intrigued, so I gave them a shot.
Product sent for review. All opinions are my own. 


NailMates are a product from NailSavers which are designed to help make removing stubborn nail polish easier. Each package comes with 10 nail caps (for all 10 fingers) and 20 reusable pads. Essentially, you apply nail polish remover or acetone to the pads, put them into the caps, and then put the caps on each finger. Easy!


NailMates are designed to help remove very stubborn treatments such as gel nail polish, but also normal nail polishes or glitter nail polishes. I decided to test out how well these worked against several types of nail polishes, but also tested the same polishes against normal cotton balls, which are what I usually use to remove nail polishes. 


I used quite a variety of polishes! Here is each nail:
  • Thumb: creme
  • Index: creme with glitter topcoat
  • Middle: shimmer
  • Ring: crelly with some glitter
  • Pinkie: jelly with lots of glitter
I applied three coats of polish to each nail, and even added a topcoat. I waited for everything to dry completely before testing, so it would be more like trying to remove nail polish that I had worn for a while. First up: cotton balls! Note these are not the NailMates pads!


I usually use cotton balls with nail polish remover (such as Zoya Remove+) and let them sit on each nail for a while, anywhere between a few seconds to loosen up cremes, and five minutes or so to loosen up glitter polishes. I loaded up each cotton ball (or half a cotton ball for each nail) and let them sit for five minutes on all nails.


After five minutes, I removed each cotton ball. You can see that it removed the creme almost entirely, but the shimmer polish and especially the glitter polishes were much more stubborn. I removed them completely after that and then applied the same polishes again:
  • Thumb: creme
  • Index: creme with glitter topcoat
  • Middle: shimmer
  • Ring: crelly with some glitter
  • Pinkie: jelly with lots of glitter
I was silly and didn't get a photo of the second application before going at it. But I applied the same polishes and let them dry completely for the same amount of time. Now it's time for the NailMates and the pads!


I loaded up each reusable pad with the same nail polish remover, Zoya Remove+. The pads say to use pure acetone, but I would only use that for removing gel polish, as I avoid using pure acetone and letting it sit on my nails and skin. The pads fit right into each cap, and then each cap fit right onto my fingers easily. You can see they're a little big for my hands and fingers, but they stayed snugly in place and did not move around or fall off at all. They were comfortable and weren't loose or tight.


I let them sit for five minutes on each nail and then removed the pads. You can see that they removed the glitter polishes much better, and got most of the shimmer. I feel like the pads are way better at removing glitter polishes than cotton balls are, but for cremes and even the shimmer, it's almost a little overkill! I suppose the reason for the NailMates pads removing everything better is that they help distribute the liquid more evenly than cotton balls, and also require way less acetone or remover.

The pads definitely showed the polishes that were removed, and I was able to clean up the pads a bit with pure acetone. They were a little tricky to clean though, so honestly I'm not terribly impressed with the pads myself. However, the caps themselves are genius and can work with even normal cotton balls! At least you can also get replacement pads, since those work so much better than the actual cotton balls. These ones were sort of long too, so you might even be able to cut them in half and get twice as many pads/uses out of them!


I actually used the caps with Remove+ and normal cotton balls to remove a very chunky glitter polish, and they worked very well. It was a great combination since I feel like the caps are what really make the difference, and then I could easily dispose of the glittery cotton balls afterward. And while I'm still using cotton balls, I don't have to waste aluminum foil or deal with the sharp edges from it! But even so, I might pick up more of the pads.

In general, I quite enjoy this product. The caps are so simple but so useful, and I will be using them plenty in the future! You can find these NailMates caps and pads on the NailMates website: http://www.nailmates.net/

  1. ooh, these look pretty interesting. I LOVE my glitters and other non-creme polishes that take more effort to remove. I've used those bulb-like capsules that you fill with polish remover, then stick on your finger tips...but they tended to leak on me and used too much remover. these nail savers look like a great reusable alternative to the foil method. i agree that i would probably continue to use cotton balls/pads instead of the reusable pads included with the kit. I don't really feel like cleaning up those things after each use.
