ACETONE OR NON-ACETONE: THAT IS THE QUESTION

With all of the options available on the market today, how do you decide whether to use acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover?

WHAT IS ACETONE?

Acetone is a clear, strong smelling liquid solvent. It’s capable of quickly dissolving away your nail polish and can also be used to remove artificial nails.

ACETONE NAIL POLISH REMOVER

The active ingredient of Cutex Regular, Nourishing and Strengthening formulas is acetone, which can work more quickly than its non-acetone counterpart. Cutex formulas are patented with emollients that condition and strengthen your nails, which is why you can use Cutex regularly without drying out your nails.

Acetone based remover is your best bet for removing glitter polishes and darker colors, but should only be used on natural nails, as it can weaken and eventually dissolve acrylics and other artificial types of nails.

NON-ACETONE NAIL POLISH REMOVERS

Non-acetone nail polish removers are perfect for acrylics and other types of artificial nails, but can also be used on natural nails. While non-acetone removers won’t destroy artificial nails, they can sometimes take longer to dissolve polish. They also tend to have a less intense scent than acetone removers. Cutex’s non-acetone Nail Polish Removers are specially formulated to work faster than other traditional non-acetone removers.
