While acetone is a common and effective ingredient found in many nail polish removers, there are several non-acetone alternatives you can use to remove nail polish. Here are a few methods you can try:

  1. Nail polish remover without acetone: Look for nail polish remover products specifically labeled as "non-acetone" or "acetone-free." These removers usually contain alternative solvents that are less harsh on the nails.
  2. Rubbing alcohol: Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) can help remove nail polish. Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, then gently rub the nail polish off the nails. Repeat until all the nail polish is removed.
  3. Hand sanitizer: Some hand sanitizers contain alcohol and can work as a nail polish remover in a pinch. Apply a small amount of hand sanitizer to a cotton ball and rub it over the nail polish until it comes off.
  4. Hairspray: Hairspray that contains alcohol can be used to remove nail polish. Spray a small amount on a cotton ball and rub it over the nail polish until it dissolves.
  5. Perfume or body spray: Some perfumes or body sprays contain alcohol, which can act as a nail polish remover. Apply the perfume or body spray to a cotton ball and rub it onto the nail polish until it is removed.


It is important to note that non-acetone methods might require a bit more time and effort compared to using acetone. Also, remember to moisturize and care for your nails after removing the polish to prevent dryness.
