De Yeu Soyonara
De Yeu Soyonara is a soy based nail polish remover that is infused with Vitamins A, C, & E. Plant based removers are different from acetone removers in that they are oily and take longer to activate. It has to saturate for 30+ seconds for dissolving to occur, but once it does, your polish starts to come off like it would with regular remover. Because of this it is better suited for full polish removal, rather than mani clean up.
The upsides is that it’s non-flammable, there are no fumes, and it doesn’t strip your skin and nails of their natural oils. Since it doesn’t evaporate you will use less product than a standard acetone remover. The one I got was scented with organic pomegranate seed oil. Pomegranate seed oil is naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic which can help with eczema and psoriasis.
Disclaimer: it will not treat or cure any skin disease.
To test it out I tried it with a thick creme polish with gold microglitters, what I would consider a mid-range in terms of removal difficulty. I saturated a cotton pad with the remover and placed it over my polished nails. I held it for 20 seconds (yes I counted) and then swept it straight off with no “scrubbing” action. All of the polish toward the middle center of my nails slid right off, with a little polish left on the sides of my deep C-curve nails. Using the same cotton pad I rubbed it a bit over the remaining polish and it easily came off. The scent was really nice, not overpowering at all, very enjoyable. Overall I was very impressed with this remover. My polish came off relatively effortlessly with minimal scrubbing or wiping. It left my nails feeling truly clean and moisturized. I would definitely use it again.
De Yeu Soyonara nail polish remover will release Oct 5. Throughout the month of October it will have an introductory price of $10. The regular price is $14.
Starlight Khoi will be available in a pre-order from Oct 12-15th. The retail price will be $16.
