Even the cheapest polish remover works for me. It's likely your technique. Try putting polish on a cotton ball, holding it to your nail for 30 seconds and then gently rub to remove.

If you're using glitter polish or any super-tough top coats (like Hoof Lacquer) then the 100% acetone polish removers will work better than the non-acetone formulas.

I think OP is asking about the ones that you just wipe once and it's gone. You guys can't say any one will work because they don't work the same.

The end result might be the same, but the time you spend trying to get everything off makes a HUGE difference. With some, you have to wipe quite a few times before it all comes off. (I've tried them all believe me).

I use the O.P.I brand, Lacquer remover. it works perfectly for me. You wipe it once or twice and it's gone.
This one has worked best for me.

100% acetone. If you have chunky glitter or gel try putting a put of the polish remover on a cotton ball and wrapping your fingertips in foil for 5-10mins it will come right off. Be sure it pay extra attention to your cuticles if you use that method. It can be a bit drying.

They all work for me. I just buy the cheapest one I find, usually the store brand (Target, CVS, Walgreen, etc.).

They are safer, too.

Most non acetone removers have methyl ethyl ketone in them. :crossbones:
