    How do I remove nail polish when 100% acetone doesn't work?

    I had my nail "done" in March and the polish has chipped and grown out and I would like to take it off.  Acetone doesn't work. How do I remove the polish specks?

    I went to the dentist today and stole some of their sanitizer while I was waiting, it took some of the polish off. I bought a bottle and will let it soak in. Thank you so much!

    Let us know if it really works. I wonder why regular nail polish remover, doesn't?
    jhharlan
    A friend said the hand sanitizer would work only if the polish was dried using ultra lights. It was. The sanitizer works after heavy application and a lot of rubbing.

    Almost worth it for $35 but this time I'll ask THEM how to remove the polish........

    THEY said to top the polish with a piece of cotton and then wrap the finger with foil. I tried it and the polish peals off. THEY said to leave it for 15 minutes. I found it take longer but, it works! Now for the right hand...

    This is why I asked in the first place. Now if only I can figure out how to use my new computer. It's a Mac with wireless stuff and a touchy keyboard. I cant figure out the spellcheck....

    Oh no Julie! Nail polish problem...maybe. Computer problem....I must run away now. lol

    When I was about in the 5th grade, my g friend's older sister showed me that I could remove nail polish by putting more nail polish on it, And that softens it......then quickly rub it all off. She did it for me. When I got home, my mom was mad at me.   : \

    Was your mom mad because you removed your polish? Or did she see remnants and then know that you had had polish on?
    jhharlan
    What a clever idea! And I have the acetone to remove the fresh product! Thank you, thank you.
