Whether you’re a fan of negative space nail art or deep French manicures, you know there will come a time when you have to kiss your mani goodbye. And while there are plenty of nail polish removers out there, most of them have a strong chemical smell thanks to their acetone-rich formulas. But you don’t have to use an acetone-based remover to get rid of every last speck of polish.
In the last few years, soy-based removers enriched with essential oils have become a popular way to clean and condition nails. These acetone-free formulas won’t dry out your nails and feature good-for-your-cuticles ingredients. And if you have super sensitive nails, non-acetone nail polish removers are your best bet since they’re so gentle.
But not all non-acetone nail polish removers meet our strict standards. So scroll through the slideshow above to see the best of the bunch.
