When buying your nail polish remover, please keep in mind that, these are two different types of nail polish removers.
Whether you want acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover, there is a small difference in price, but not by much and here’s a little secret: While acetone will work faster at getting the polish off of your nails, non-acetone removers will not be as ruff on your nails.
So what’s in these removers, anyway? Acetone is a clear, harsh-smelling and highly flammable liquid. It’s a solvent, capable of disintegrating even plastic. This explains why it works so quickly breaking apart and removing your nail polish. Isopropyl alcohol is typically used in the making of acetone.
The key active ingredient in non-acetone removers is usually ethyl acetate. Made from ethanol and acetic acid, ethyl acetate is colorless and also flammable. In addition to also being used as a solvent, its fragrant smell has led to its use in perfumes.
Please keep in mind, if you just had your nails done and you want to change the color, make sure you don’t use acetone polish remover, as it will not only take off the nail polish, but it will also make your nail set very soft, and your nail tips will come off. I learned the hard way years ago.
