An acetone-based nail polish remover will likely be the best way to get nail glue off your skin. You can use just about any nail polish remover with acetone, but we recommend Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover. Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover is 100% pure acetone, and it will definitely work to get nail glue off your skin. It will work to get most glues off of most surfaces. If you have sensitive or very dry skin, using acetone might not be for you because it can irritate or skin or dry it out very quickly. If you have sensitive or dry skin, you should try the other methods on this list.

Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Hand Cream is excellent for sensitive skin and will remove nail glue very well.
