I have the OPI gel nail polish that only comes of by soaking your nails in acetone for about 20 mins. I get my nails manicured with the gel polish every 2 wks and not sure of the danger the acetone might pose since it does seep right into skin. I am currently 7-8wks.Answer Question

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't acetone cause Arthritis? I don't think soaking in the stuff is good for YOU long term. When I remove nail polish (the regular type) I use acetone and a cotton ball. I apply force and as it melts it rubs off. It is only in contact with my cuticles and nails for a sort time. I would never SOAK in it.
