  • Does your polish remover have acetone in it? If not, get some that does. That works the best. Good luck. :)

  • I had done a pedicure french white and got lazy one day when one toe got messed so I painted it silver. The other day I was going to a party and painted it red without removing other colors (OK that is what a new baby will do to you..olooolz) I tried removing and its just stuck. I am going to buy a new bottle and see if the nail polish works.

  • soak a cotton ball in acetone and let it sit on the nail -then work at it-it wil come off eventually :)

  • You can also use a buffer and it will come off that way.

  • A buffer works... or nailpolish remover with acetone.. they also make little jars that you can stick your finger in and it will come off.

  • I usually just buff it out, with a nail file or buffer.

  • Get pure acetone nail polish remover, it will work. (It took the finish off my brand new dining table, thank you DD!)
