To be completely honest, I saw this in my box and thought, "I love natural/organic/etc. products, but nail polish remover? Come on, that's never going to work. " But it did! I removed red nail polish from my nails the first time I tried it...and it did turn my fingers a little red, but that all washed off with a quick hand wash. It smelled much better than regular polish remover and felt good on my cuticles and everything, too.
