The polish remover I’m using now


Since the COVID-19 lockdown, have you had difficulty finding acetone and polish removers in stock? I have… and therefore I’ve recently been looking for an alternative to pure acetone, which I’ve used almost exclusively for years to remove gel polish and soak off acrylic.

So if you’re looking for another option, check out the Advanced Nail Polish Remover at your local Walmart.

At first I dismissed this product because it clearly says “nail polish remover” and, typically, we would need acetone to soak off gel polish. But then, in desperation, I finally picked up this product and read the fine print.  It states that you can use it on gel polish, and the first ingredient listed on the back is acetone.  And I decided to give it a try.

Now I’ve used it several times to remove Gelish® and had no trouble at all. It works the same way that pure acetone does to remove gel polish.  Bonus – the oils it contains apparently prevent the skin drying out just enough to keep the dry, chalky skin caused by pure acetone.

Have you used this product? What did you think of it?
