The Stripper to Go by Deborah Lippmann

I've been wanting to try Deborah Lippmann's The Stripper to Go ever since I first saw it for sale, so I was absolutely thrilled to find this as a part of my free sample from Nail Polish Canada!

Here's the packet:

It was a lot bigger than I expected! I decided to test this baby out on a polish addict's worst removal nightmare: glitter! This is Nerd Lacquer's Event Horizon.

Here's the mitt itself. It didn't smell that bad actually, more lavender than polish remover.

And the mitt on my pinky finger. I left it on for a minute, then wiped it off like I would with the foil method.

Hmm.. I'm hopeful! It removed that polish very cleanly! Onto the second finger.

This one took a bit more effort to fully remove, but it was still fairly easy.  So I moved onto the third finger.

And that's where the magic ends...  it just stopped working completely. It wouldn't even stick to the topcoat like a cotton ball with remover on it. Just dead! I was shocked.

Sadly, this product was a bust for me. I think it may have just gotten too dry because of the extra time required to remove glitter polish. This may work better for regular creme polish removals, but I'd be hesitant to spend a lot of money to test it myself.


  1. Only two nails??! Yikes! Thank you for the honest review!

    1. Sadly, yes. I was shocked with how it just stopped working!

  2. Mine dried out before the first hand was clean, as well. I thought I had let it dry out too much, but now it sounds like the product itself doesn't have/retain enough liquid. :(
