Today I have a review for a new to me product from a new brand by IG swatcher @mrs.miscostello aka Misty. I've been having issues with the constant use of acetone on my skin and the fumes have been triggering headaches. So I asked in a FB group for any brand that made acetone additives without grapeseed oil (because I'm allergic to it). Misty responded letting me know that she had a brand new product that was grapeseed oil free and offered to send me a bottle to try out and review! So check below for my thoughts!
Acetone Additives are usually a mix of oils that you can add to a bottle of acetone to help make it less drying, while not compromising the ability to effectively remove nail polish. Now, I don't use acetone to remove my polish. When swatching I use a peel off base coat and for regular wear I use a non-acetone remover. But I still need to use it for clean up, I have narrow nails and most nail polish brushes are too big so I always end up with polish on my skin, no matter how carefully I apply it. Then there's glitters and gel polish, which will always need acetone to properly remove them. This was taking a toll on my skin and the smell of acetone was giving me daily headaches so I was super happy to be able to review this product.
Lilly Anne's Garden Acetone Additive comes in a 30ml bottle with a dropper top. This means that you can add the whole bottle to a 16oz bottle of acetone or you can just add a few drops to a dappen dish during clean up. This works out great for me! That way I can still have pure acetone for cleaning my stamping plates, and I can customize how much additive I want to use.
