What it is:A non-drying nail color remover that quickly and effectively removes even the darkest shades of nail lacquer.What it does:Sephora by OPI Nail Colour Remover is a fast, gentle nail polish remover without harsh, drying effects or the tell-tale white residue left behind by traditional acetone nail polish removers. The superior formula contains grape seed oil, vitamin E, and extracts of sea kelp and aloe vera, making it more effective than traditional formulas.What else you need to know:It completely removes nail color without drying, and leaves cuticles soft and smooth. It leaves behind a unique antioxidant-rich moisturizing complex that conditions cuticles and combats dryness. The formula's pleasant fragrance bears no resemblance to the harsh scent traditional nail polish remover.

I don't think its strong enough to remove acrylics and gels for that you need 100 percent acetone. But you can use this nail polish remover on fake nails to remove the color.

answer 5
I don't have it with me right now, so I can't check, but you should check if it has acetone in it. If it has acetone, it will probably dissolve acrylic nails. If not, you're probably safe. That's my guess, but I've never used it on fake nails, so I'm not certain.

There are different types of fake nails and brands use different substances to make them, nail polish remover WILL start to disolve some types. You're best off asking your manicurist directly or emailing the company that makes the nails. If you feel like you can't get a straight answer just try it right before you're about to change them anyway.

answer 10
I would actually disagree with the first answer...simply because this remover is acetone-based. Acetone is what is commonly used to REMOVE acrylic nails and the like. I'm sure a few quick swipes won't cause damage as it usually takes soaking in acetone to significantly soften acrylic.

But it may cause the smooth finish on your nail to become dull and cotton will easily stick to slightly soft acrylic and then harden into it when it dries! Worst still (yet fairly unlikely) it can affect the seal of the acrylic nail to your natural nail around the edges creating a space which invites moisture (and even possibly fungi).

So...just be aware of the potential! (And perhaps just look for a non-acetone remover instead) :-)

answer 11
Yes, safe for acrylic (I don't have anything else so I can't comment on the other nail enhancements!). As with any remover, don't SOAK your tips in it, Apply for about 10 seconds then wipe..repeat.

While this does seem to be less damaging and chemical-ly than most drugstore polish removers, you may want to check out the few polishes and removers designed for pregnant women, they're designed to give off less damaging fumes and chemicals. sorry I'm not familiar with specific brand names, but that's what google's for :) hope this helps!

The scent may be a bit strong for a child, but it takes less time to remove your nail polish compare to the drugstore brands, so I think this product is more proper for your child.

What to use in place of "nail pad"?
I used to use this with the OPI for sephora nail pad, but they aren't sold anymore! Does anyone have a good suggestion of what to use to apply the remover? Paper towels aren't doing the trick.

I like to use cotton pads. You can soak them with product and they won't leak. Also they don't break up or leave lint. No need to use anything too expensive, I just use the Target brand.

I've never used a nail pad but this works great with cotton balls. Most drugstores also have flat, round cotton pads that would probably work well, too.

Your basic cotton round from the drugstore is the best way to go...absorbs enough remover to do the job and doesn't disintegrate like a tissue or papertowel

I always use basic cotton rounds which can be purchased pretty much anywhere. They are fairly inexpensive and hold up better than paper towels yet aren't as messy as cotton balls. I've noticed that they come in different sizes and textures too.

Here are my favorite ways to remove polish

1. Cotton balls- they don't leave behind any paper but you might get remover on your fingers

2. cotton pads, which are the slim disks of cotton. Be sure to find a brand that has quilted pads or there will be debris on your nails. Sephora calls them, "cotton rounds"

3. A linen rag- this is my favorite because nothing gets left behind. You could wash it if you want but I just cut up little pieces and throw them away.

*Remember to use fresh nail polish and throw out old polish that doesn't dry well.

Does this polish remover Really easily remove gel colour?
I used a gel colour once and while I Loved the ease of it, the fast drying & shine--I could NOT get the color off for weeks without potentially hurting my nail bed (honestly it was that bad) so of course my nails looked dreadful the entire time. I swore I would never use gel colour again until I could find a remover that definitely worked to Perfection. Is this THE remover that'll do the trick? HELP me ladies, please. :))

Yep. Saturate a nail pad and wrap it around your nail. Put on a plastic glove and wait 20 minutes. Peel off the wrap and the nail color should have lifted off your nail. Just push it off with a cuticle stick gently. If its still ok the nail, repeat the process.
