Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover is a great product because it isn't as harsh as traditional acetone nail polish removers. However, it doesn't remove some kinds of polish as quickly as other removers. This remover does not dry out nails as much as others, especially if you do a lot of removing and repolishing. The problem is that if your favorite polish has something like metallic sparkles in it or another kind of larger sized shimmer, it will require a good bit more scrubbing than a stronger product to get all the glitters off. Not a problem if you are just redoing, but if you are changing to a pretty see-through polish, you do need to get all the old stuff off completely. Cutex is also not the cheapest product out there that can get the job done. Bottom line to me is how much of a problem do you have with acetone? If you can just take your remover and cotton balls outside and do it, probably you would be better off using a cheap product and saving your money. If you have a sensitivity to acetone or you do your nails very frequently and they get damaged easily, this is a good product for you because it is somewhat less damaging.

maybe not the best for any girl to have on hand, as it is a chemical, but when it comes down to it, if you are wearing finger nail polish you need this!! as long as you can stand the smell, that is.

i love the fact that this brand is different than any other brand, including store brands.  it's cheap, removes finger nail polish easy and can be found in most places.

the only negatives about this product is it does smell. i wouldn't suggest using on a smaller child or the elderly women as the fumes may be to strong. if you are using this product, just make sure you have some ventalization to keep the fumes out and clean air coming in.  be cautious when using this product as if you get it on your clothes it may strip the color right out. so don't use it when you are wearing clothes you care about or even on a couch that you don't want to have a chance of ruining the fabric on. and use caution when you use this by any coated furniture. i spilt some one time onf a coffee table and it ate the coating right off.

just remember if it's strong enough to take off finger nail polish, chances are it will take color or coating off other items.

all in all if you use some smarts while using this product you shouldn't have a problem.

A Good Non-Acetone Polish Remover

By 

from USA

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

This is a solid choice for a non-acetone nail polish remover. It works well for what it is and it's much gentler than using an acetone based remover, which can be result in dry nails prone to breaks. I frequently use Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover and I'm happy with its performance.

Non-acetone removers like this use ethyl acetate instead of acetone. Ethyl acetate is a solvent that is perfectly capable of breaking down the polymers in nail polish - though it doesn't work as quickly as acetone nor is it as strong. However, ethyl acetate is much gentler and has the added bonus of being safe to use with acrylic nails.

This remover is fine for removing standard nail polish, but I've noticed it does have trouble removing glitter polishes even with soaking. If you're attempting to remove a stubborn glitter polish you should skip this and go for the acetone - it will save you a lot of time.

I usually wear dark shades and glitter nail polish. Cutex does a great job in removing that stubborn nail polish. it works so well I also use it to remove dried on marker stains from my dry erase board. I put a little on a paper towel and viola! the stains have disappeared!

Great and not harsh on my nails.

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I will only use Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover. Normally non acetone polish removers take longer to remove polish because it isn't as harsh as acetone, But I like that Cutex's non-acetone remover is designed to work faster then the usual non acetone removers.

Works fast

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

This fingernail polish remover is great. It removes your nail polish very quick and easy. There is no need to spend a lot of time trying to rub it off and it even works great on removing glitter. The smell is awful of course, but that's expected. I also got a little bit on my carpet by accident and it didn't stain like most nail polish remover would.

Cutex non Acetone Nail Polish Remover

By 

from South Bend, IN

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I really like this brand. It seems to be the less offensive odor kind out there. It is only pennies more than the off brand and is worth it. It allows me to change colors often doesn't dry my nails out. Seems to make them softer and more healthy looking. My little one likes the differnt colors it comes in. I don't mind paying the little extra for the quality. It removes the polish quickly. I have used it for about 3 years and still find it to be very good. I can find it in just about every drug store, grocery store or beauty asile. I would like to see them in a smaller travel size for vacation trips. I do see myself using this product in the future and recommending it to friends and family. Right now it is the only one in my home.

does what its supposed to

By 

from Eau Claire, WI

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I have used this product for years. There are a lot of good things about this product. Its extremely easy to find in the stores. Its practically in any store that you regularly shop at. Its also very affordable and there are a few choices in the type of remover that you can get. It doesnt work the best, and you may have to take some time to get your nail polish off but it works. its easy to get off the nails but when you get close to the skin on the fingers it kind of takes a little bit of work. But it does what it is supposed to do, no questions asked. I would definately recommend this to a friend and I will continue to use it, especially around here you cant find anything else unless you order online, and if you dont want to wait, its just a run to the store and you know it will be there!

awesome and hydrating

By

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I am using the Cutex nail polish removers for last 10 years. It is the best nail polish remover I have ever used.It has a different types of removers to choose from. My skin is very dry but when I use Cutex nail polish remover I don't feel the dryness on my nails. It makes my nails feel hydrated and mosit even after removing the nail polish which makes a huge difference for me.

I did use different brands of nail polisj removers but Cutex is the best. My skin is sensitive to some chemicals but I did not face any issues while using Cutex.

Cutex Nail Polish Remover.. Love it!

By 

from Sterling, VA

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I love this nail polish remover. I have tried other kinds, such as the yellow (lemony scented) one. That one may have smelled better but it most certainly did not work better. I had to use more of it and rub a lot harder to take off the nail polish. Maybe this kind has more chemicals that make it work better, but either way it works well. Thoroughly soak the cotton ball and then rub at the nail polish until it is gone, it never takes me very long with this polish remover. It does leave a horrible smell on your fingers that takes a long time to go away, I have even tried methods to take it away as if it were an onion smell. I would not leave a cotton ball soaked with this remover lying around on varnished furniture, it will take some of the varnish off. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a quick way to remove their nail polish, but I would definitely forewarn them of the smell it leaves behind.

Takes a lot to work

By 

from Santa Rosa, CA

Comments about Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover:

I tried this product as it was labeled non-acetone and I thought it would be better for the care of my nails in removing the nail polish. As with all nail polish removers, the smell is still as bad as the other removers on the market. Upon taking off my nail polish, I found that I had to really work to get the polish off and I had to keep reapplying the product over and over. Compared with regular nail polish remover, I could have been done in less than half of the time it took me to remove the polish if I had used the traditional kind. Also on the downside is that this brand of polish remover costs more than the traditional polish remover, and as stated earlier, does not nearly as well at taking off the polish. On the positive side, this product does not seem to dry out the nail as much as the acetone removers. All in all, I would still not use this product again, even if it is a little more nourshing to my nails.
