This is an okay nail polish remover. It's kind of middle of the road for me. It's not the best, but it's by far not the worst. It removes polish in an alright manner, but I wouldn't say that it "strengthens & nourishes" like the bottle says. However, if it's between this one and say an off label store brand nail polish remover, this one would definitely be better. It's a little more expensive, but worth not completely trashing your nails. Not the best for removing glitter polish, but Cutex has another formula for that anyway. It is good for cleaning up little mistakes when painting your nails. A pointed Q-Tip or an angled make up brush dipped in this stuff will do a pretty good clean up job, if needed.
