    HALP! I can't get my nail polish off! LOL

    Advertisements
    I figured Up&Up (Target brand) nail polish remover was sufficient. First ingredient is acetone. But it won't TOUCH the nail polish on my toes!!! It took me probably 45 minutes to get it off my fingers (different polishes). I seriously sat there rubbing and rubbing and I even let it "soak" on my toes for several seconds and THEN tried rubbing with a TON of pressure (hurt my toe!) and it didn't even have a hint of the color on the cotton ball!!

    Usually I leave this to the experts (the nice ladies at the nail salon) but I want to change the color myself for a change!!!

    Is there a better polish remover out there that I need to get?

    Have you tried to saturate a cotton ball, place it on your toe and wrap your toe in foil. Let it soak in for a few minutes. It may also help to lightly scuff the top of the polish with a wooden emory board if you have one!

    Oooooh, gel or shellac. Didn't think of that. That would be tougher.

    Try soaking for like 5-10 minutes. If that fails, then get a different polish remover, or even pure acetone (be very careful!).

    Even if you go to a salon to get it off, they're going to do the same thing.

    Wow. That's some awesome polish then.

    I would try to scuff it a bit and see if that helps.

    Thanks for the tips, ladies! I think I'll try the emery board a little and THEN the soak w/ cotton balls/foil for a few minutes.... and see if that works. If not, I guess I'll be getting some better remover!
