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.
