Nails can describe a lot about a person. Whether it’s the choice of colour, design or even the length of your nails, your personality is basically showcased to the world and it only takes a few good looks to make a deduction about you. As much as we love to upkeep our nails to make sure they remain fabulous, quite frankly, removing the old lacquer can be quite tedious. 

Does acetone nail polish remover damage nails?

 Only if you have super dry, damaged nails, as they will get drier and more brittle when exposed to acetone. Naturally, polish remover can dry out your nails, leading to brittleness, splitting, peeling and breakage, so it’s crucial to moisturise your hands and nails with creams before you go to bed and in the morning. Alternatively, go for non-acetone nail removers. Nonetheless, there are nail polish removers that will leave your nails clean and fresh in no time.
