Starlight Polish Khoi ~ De Yeu Soy-based Nail Polish Remover Psyche’s Beau

Do you all like shopping with indie etailers? The most popular when I got into polish was Colors by Llarowe, she however stopped that aspect of her business a couple years ago. They are still a great way of shopping, and are often particularly targeted towards offering international brands that would normally be difficult if not impossible for buyers to attain. They also often have store exclusives from some of your favorite brands. In that light I have a couple of things to share with you all today. First is Psyche’s Beau Store Exclusive from Starlight Polish, Khoi. Then I’m going to tell you about my first experience with their soy-based nail polish remover.

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.

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.

Until next time, stay polished! 

  • Lovely swatch and I personally love etailers. Although I haven’t purchased any polish since IEC because I had to put myself on a no-buy it is a great way to get access to brands that I can’t otherwise get access too.
