wearable nail polish removers

I got a manicure on Monday and the manicurist didn't have very many colours so I chose to have my nails painted with OPI Bring on the Bling.
I tried to take a photo but could not capture the sparkle so here is a random one from google.

The colour is absolutely beautiful and really sparkles in the sunshine.
This may sound silly but once I put my e ring back on after the manicure my heart sank, the colour looked absolutely shocking against my sparkly white gold ring.
I stuck with the colour until today when I couldn't stand it any longer so I thought, what better time to try out this weird wearable nail polish remover soaker things that I got off eBay.

This is what the nail soaker things look like.
You put nail polish remover in the clear part and then attach the pink suction cup bit and stick it on your fingers.
This is actually a lot harder than it seems, I had to get the boy to put them on for me lol

[Please excuse the bad quality iPhone photo & my mess.
I was removing all my nail polish and re doing it. What a job!]

This is the nail soakers in action!

Sorry for another odd photo. I was leaning my thumb against my knee lol

You can actually see the glitter polish is already half off my nails.
This literally took about 2 minutes.
I think I filled up the clear cup thing a bit too much as I had a bit of leakage.

And presto! Not a trace of glitter polish on my grubby, dry fingers.
Like the marks left by the suction on the polish removers? lol

I definitely recommend using this method, it's so quick, effective and relatively mess-free.
The only problem is, it really dries out your fingertips so have some good moisturiser handy!

If you want to get in on this, you can buy them here for the grand old price of $2.70

Have you ever used these before?
