I always bought generic brand nail polish remover as I figured it did a decent job. I needed some remover, and this was all the store had, and I have never looked back since. This stuff does it's job fast and well. It removed everything really easily, a few swipes and the nail is cleared. I struggle with the fact that the cap isn't deep for me to pour the polish into. It also has a strong scent, not like alcohol, but something else, and I don't mind since it get's the job done well.
