Whats the difference between 100% acetone and non acetone nail polish remover?

ive used both before but i dont really know what makes them differentWhats the difference between 100% acetone and non acetone nail polish remover?
you should ask this question in Chemistry Section.Whats the difference between 100% acetone and non acetone nail polish remover?
Acetone can be really drying to your nails, and then they can peel in those annoying little strips. Non acetone is also somewhat less flammable, I believe.
Acetone is great for removing polish, BUT it is also great at dissolving the glue that holds acrylic nails on.


It is also great for dissolving super-glue if you ever have an accident with the crazy-glue and get something stuck somewhere you don't want it.


That is why they recommend using non-acetone nail polish remover if you have fake nails; acetone will eat away at the glue.


Non-acetone also tends to be gentler on the nail and cuticle.
The non acetone remover is for artificial nails and more expensive.
Acetone, although effective, can be very drying to the nails and cuticles.





Non-acetone products are milder.
100% acetone nail polish remover will take off acrylic and press on nails and non acetone polish can be used to change the polish color on those nails without damaging the nails because it is less harsh.
