Handy Hints - Nail Polish Removers

I hope you lovely ladies (and men) learn a little something from this new Handy Hints series n_n Our first one is dedicated to Nail Polish Remover.

Basically there are 3 types, Acetone Formula, Non-Acetone and Straight Acetone.

Let's see what they do:

Acetone Remover
  • Best for natural nails
  • Safe to use
  • A little drying, but your body will repair that in 24 hours
  • Removes polish quite quickly
Non - Acetone Remover
  • Just because it's stated 'Non-Acetone' doesn't make it better!
  • More drying than Acetone Remover
  • Best suited for artificial nails
  • Can be more harmful to you
  • Takes a little longer to remove polish as it tends to push it around more rather than absorb
  • If you prefer to use this one instead of the Acetone formulated one because it is more drying (for you), please keep in mind that you can always slather on some oil and all is good again, maybe even better! n_n
Straight Acetone
  • Ok, I wouldn't really recommend this as your everyday remover but sometimes Glitter polishes needs it to come off quickly and efficiently
  • Is pretty safe to use, second safest substance a Nail Tech uses. First, is water.
The best remover I have ever come across was Zoya's Remove+. Best stuff ever. Didn't leave you feeling dry, smells nice, made your fingers feel moistened and nourished. It is quite expensive though, so once my sample ran out back to the drug store remover I went.

I mean, it still does the job just remember to always slap on some oil or cuticle cream after using remover, and not to drink it.

Handy Hints coming up; Files, Artificial Nails, Basic Nail Care, Top Coats & Base Coats, Cuticle Care... is there something you would like me to talk about?
