How do I get nail glue off of my skin?
By Dorothy from Dallas
Acetone nail polish remover. If you have on nail polish and/or sculptured nails when using it just use q-tips to apply and rub the glue off of your skin.
After spending hours trying to scrape off the glue once dry, and using cotton buds soaked in acetone polish remover I decided to cut a lemon in half and poured salt over one of the halves. I then sqeezed the lemon juice while rubbing it on the areas of the dried glue. It removed most of the glue. :) You may want to repeat this a couple of times as I will be now.
Jessii30, are you sure you were using 'acetone' polish remover? I'll venture to bet it was non-acetone instead because acetone would have removed the nail glue in about two or three minutes.

How do I remove nail glue from my skin?

Just let it completely dry on your skin and gradually peel off pieces later. The longer it's been on there, the easier it gets. (12/16/2009)
I use acetone nail polish remover and that's what manicurists use to remove nail glue. Just be sure to use a Q-tip to apply and to rub the glue off, if you have artificial nails, because it could melt the artificials. If no artificials you can use a cotton ball or a cloth. (12/17/2009)

Dish soap mixed with nail polish remover should work. At least it worked for me. Hope I helped. (11/03/2009)
Nail polish remover for certain, but make sure it's acetone and not non-acetone. (11/04/2009)

Acetone nail polish remover. Be sure it's acetone and not non-acetone. It's quick and easy and won't hurt your skin :-) (08/18/2009)
I soaked my hands in hot water and the nail glue turned to a plaster type color and hardened up quick. All it does is turn white but it still sticks a lot. (01/03/2009)

I spilled some all over my hand and pants. Any ideas for removing it?
