DCSI knows that getting a manicure is something of pure bliss, but the nail polish removal process after getting one’s nails done doesn't rank high on anyone's list. This is especially for those with nails that are prone to splitting, breaking, and brittleness. Even if you aren’t dealing with stubborn gel polish or layers of glitter, the process of inhaling acetone while scrubbing away old polish can fill anyone with dread and possibly damage the nails unless you are using gentle nail polish removers.    DCSI has treated brittle nails and other conditions. With our experience, we have been able to put together a list of the best type of nail polish removers for your nails. 

Elle + Mila Soy Polish Remover

This is an acetone-free remover from the vegan and cruelty-free nail brand Ella + Mila. This product uses an infusion of lavender oil for an extra boost of nourishment. Just dip the cotton ball and swipe it across each nail. Let the liquid absorb for 20 to 30 seconds before wiping it away and taking the color with it. 

Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover

Cutex is a tried and true drug store brand that offers a nourishing polish remover at salon quality. Their formula is a mixture of flaxseed and perilla seed oils to strengthen keratin. There is also skin-softening apricot seed oil to keep fingers in the best shape. 

Cutex Swipe and Go Nail Polish Remover Pads

This is for those who are on the go, who don’t want to spill a whole bottle, and who need quick solutions. These single-use cloths can clean both hands of their lacquer and still have enough solutions on them to go over the nails again to make sure it's all gone.
