Best Selling Nail Polish Removers

 The only thing standing between you and the perfect manicure? Your old manicure.

Banish unwanted polish in seconds with the best nail polish removers.

Nail polish removers come in a couple types, and each have their good and bad points, so it’s worth having a think about which option is going to work best.

Many of brands of remover now contain Vitamin E, aloe vera and other moisturizing ingredients, and these will, over time, greatly improve your nail quality, so are worth considering. The other decision is whether to use a chemical based remover, or not.

Acetone based remover:

This is the most common and cheapest type of remover and is very effective at taking off polish quickly and easily, especially the darker colors. However, it can dry out both nails and cuticles, causing splitting, peeling and soreness.

Acetone removers should be used with care around acrylic nails; as it is frequently employed to loosen and detach these, taking polish off with it can accidentally damage the artificial nail.

Acetone free remover:

This contains no harsh chemicals and is ideal for acrylic and natural nails alike, leaving them feeling nourished and healthy. However, it is more expensive and takes effort to remove the polish, especially darker colors.

To help you decide, these are my Top 5 Nail Polish Removers November, 2018:

1) Onyx Professional 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover with Nail File

What Makes It Great

I tried this acetone remover with several nail finishes – gel, dip powders and a whole variety of polishes, and it worked consistently well each time. I used soaking and just wiping with cotton wool balls as removal methods and was super happy with the results!

Where It Could Be Improved

I really liked the fact that the manufacturer included a free hard wearing nail file with this – very thoughtful and useful. It arrived promptly and well wrapped. Our only worry is that it didn’t come with a removable foil seal, so that when we opened the bottle, I almost spilt it everywhere. That could definitely be improved upon.

9.4Expert Score
The Final Verdict

An effective, quick working polish remover, and with the free nail file, it’s a winner as far as I'm concerned.

2) ZOYA Nail Polish Remover

What Makes It Great

Despite containing acetone, this quick acting remover left my nails feeling smooth and healthy, even though I change my polish almost daily. It doesn’t have that chemical smell associated with polish removers, either.

What I love is that it’s a 3-in-1 nail polish remover, nail prep and conditioner. It’s said to moisturize and nourish the skin, and my nails do look healthier after a few applications.

The twist and lock lid is a brilliant idea, while the pump action dispenser is genius, meaning that every drop can be used.

The bottle was slightly grippy, and this, coupled with the locking lid and dispenser, meant that there was no risk of spillages.

Where It Could Be Improved

The price is a little high for a polish remover but for me, it’s worth it.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Even though it cost a bit more than most, I would happily pay as it’s such a good remover. You actually don’t need much per session, so it probably equals out in the end anyway.

3) Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish Remover

What Makes It Great

This sweet nail polish remover from Sally Hansen ticks all the boxes. It gives consistently good results, and I was very impressed with its performance. Quickly removing every last trace of the polishes I tried it on, it left my nails feeling super smooth and moist.

Where It Could Be Improved

Absolutely no complaints with this one!

9.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is an impressive polish remover that not only took off unwanted polishes, but also seemed to strengthen and feed my nails ready for the next time.

4) Super Nail Pure Acetone Remover

What Makes It Great

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this Pure Acetone product, and it does smell very chemically. But you get a lot for your dollars and the no nonsense approach is refreshing. So far, so good.

This nifty little bottle of stuff is great for other things besides removing nail polish, which, by the way, it’s excellent at. I tried it on an old stained carpet – not sure what the stain was, but it is no more! It’s also brilliant at removing chewing gum from the driveway, sticky label residue on jars, and probably a lot more besides.

Where It Could Be Improved

After two or three uses, my nails and cuticles did feel a bit brittle, dry but with a liberal application of Vitamin E oil they felt, and looked, much better.

9.0Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Super Nail have created a versatile, professional grade product here, and at a good price. Very happy.

5) HIGHROCK Acrylic Nail Art Polish Remover Clip Caps

What Makes It Great

What a fantastic idea!

Highrock have come up with reusable clips for soaking off polish – a non-messy, time friendly solution. The clips fitted my fingers well, even my friend’s male fingers – don’t ask, and were comfortable. They look very durable and well made.

These clips halve the time to soak off polish, are inexpensive, simple to use and last really well. I’ve used them multiple times, and they still have plenty of life left. These are fab!

Where It Could Be Improved

To be honest, they do work slower than a traditional acetone soaked cotton pad, but I love them and the only thing that I take issue with is why they weren’t available before!

8.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Almost perfect! And you can even hold a cup of coffee or a mobile phone while they are hard at work, so you don’t have to be!
