Can You Use Nail Polish Remover Acrylic?

Written by Tara

Again, the answer is still a no. Non-acetone or regular nail polish removers do not chemically react with acrylic powder to create a solid product. Like acetone, non-acetone nail polish removers will dissolve the acrylic powder, not react to form a combined solid substance.

If you have regular polish on top of your acrylics, you can remove it now with acetone or a regular nail polish remover. But if you have gel polish on, Gyimah suggests using the coarse 100 grit side of your file to file off the shiny topcoat and into the bulk of the acrylic.

Generally How do you make homemade acrylic liquid for nails? All you need is an empty nail polish bottle, 1/4 teaspoon of water, and 3/4 teaspoon of washable/ non-toxic glue. I prefer to use Elmer’s liquid glue, but any liquid glue should do. Once all ingredients are poured into bottle, shake really well. It should take about 45 seconds to a minute.
