Nail polishes generally contain a mix of ingredients like resins, plasticisers, film formers, and colour pigments. Nail enamel formulas keep evolving for long-lasting stay and this makes them even more difficult to remove. Out of the two types—acetone and non-acetone—nail polish removers available, acetone based are the most effective, especially when it comes to dissolving darker colours or shellac enamels as they effortlessly disintegrate the toughest polymer molecules. Sadly, acetone is harsh on nails, cuticles and skin, something that you must avoid if you have fragile nails that are prone to splitting. Non-acetone removers use less aggressive solvents like ethyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, and propylene carbonate, which are gentler but require more effort. So, we handpicked a few nail polish removers to suit your individual manicure needs.
