review of  Nail Aid Power Gel No Rub acetone Remover
Hey everyone! A little something different from me today. I have a review of my experience with this acetone gel no rub.
Someone mentioned in one of the many Facebook groups I'm in that they found this at Wal Mart, and I had to go on the hunt for it. To my surprise my Wal Mart actually had it! There are two different kinds; one for dark nail polish and the one I got for glitter and nail art removal.

First off, let me just say please don't do what I did as soon as I opened this. I'm like "oooh pink!" and I took a HUGE whiff of it, and it about knocked me out. I should have known better, hello Manna, it's ACETONE, not roses. Here's the gel:

I followed the easy step by step instructions that they have on the back. I dipped each nail one by one into the gel.

You can't really tell much from the front, but after about 2 minutes, this is what they looked like:

They started to bubble! Signs that it's working. I kept it on for 4 minutes as instructed, and then I used a paper towel for removal. I wanted to use a cotton pad, but for this review I followed the instructions and used a paper towel. Here is the result:

Not bad huh? It didn't get all of it off, but I used one cotton pad to remove the rest. Easy. 

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Easy removal in under 5 minutes! 
Cons: The smell. I'm assuming that it is pure acetone, so if that's an irritant for you, then this product isn't for you. It did dry my cuticles out afterwards, but some application of cuticle oil fixed that right up.
Tips: Immediately after you rub off the polish, WASH YOUR HANDS. The gel is sticky, and if you try to use a cotton ball to remove the remainder of the polish before washing your hands, you will have a big mess

Final thoughts:
This gel remover is FANTASTIC, and I'm really glad I found it. So long foil method! I won't be missing you. 

This is available at Wal Mart for $3.88 and can also be purchased at norubgel.com
