Josie Maran Bear Naked Nail Wipes

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $16 for 40 wipes

THE SKINNY: Finally, a nail polish remover that doesn’t feel like chemicals on your fingers. Josie Maren delivers oily goodness in this product, which leaves my nails and the tips of my fingers and toes feeling moisturized.

This is a three-in-one wipe: It takes off the polish, uses argan oil to soothe dry cuticles and overall encourages healthy nails. They're also grapefruit scented.

I'm a big fan, but be warned. These wipes aren't really as effective as the real stuff. I've found they're best for plain polishes without glitter or a pearly finish, and even then you’re likely going to scrub a bit and use more than one.

I've tried on a Zoya Pixie Dust polish, which is really gritty, and it needed some hard scrubbing (and four wipes) to slowly come off.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep, but I won't be able to use them to remove every polish.
