How to make pure acetone

    Who uses pure acetone to remove nail polish

    and where did you get it from? I've only had bad experiences with acetone-free nail polish removers, but I also don't feel like spending € 14.50 on a bottle of Chanel remover. Now I remember that someone here once wrote that she was simply taking acetone from the hardware store. In a nail forum I found that they take pure acetone from Faust, 1 l somehow costs € 5.00 or so, that's a different price.
    But I wanted to know what your experiences with it are like.
    Datura maybe?

    For me, as BB tip, ebelin in blue moved in a long time ago - with acetone.
    Also only costs very little money.
    I would not take pure acetone out of fear of ignorance.
    The signature fragrance is a promise to friends and a threat to enemies.

    I get the acetone from a buddy, so unfortunately I can't comment on sources of supply. But it is already drying out badly - I would not recommend it to you, otherwise you will revive your old thread

    Yes, I take pure acetone and always buy a 1 liter can at the hardware store. Since I like to paint and use it to dilute my lacquer colors, it pays off for me. I also dilute my nail polishes with pure acetone, it works perfectly. Always have a bottle of acetone with a pipette next to the paint. So with me the can is not in the bathroom.
    It scrubs everything down completely in no time at all, but also evaporates very quickly. Ventilate well. Inhaling is not harmful to health in the long term, but it can make you dizzy.
    If you don't want it to evaporate that quickly, you can dilute it a little (!) With water.
    It doesn't make my nails brittle. At least not more than a normal nail polish remover. There is also acetone in it, just additional water, oil (makes painting difficult afterwards), glycerine, perfume, dyes ... all superfluous.
    The varnish holds great afterwards, as acetone is strongly degreased.
    If you apply cream to your nails after painting, the loss of fat will also be balanced out again.

    It was me and I got it from the hardware store. I put it in an empty nail polish remover bottle. I haven't used it for thinning, but I use the P2 thinner.
    By nature all men are equal. At least for me.

    OK, I'll do it now. Everything else is kind of annoying.

    Acetone is available from Müller on the cleaning agent shelves for very little money
    You just don't ask someone with winged eyeliner why they are late for something!

    The cheapest Ebelin consists practically only of acetone and works wonderfully. Also only costs 40 cents or so.

    Well, I already have very sturdy nails and such, but I really don't want to do pure acetone to them.
    Try the green Astor remover, Janne. Cheap and really great.
    Find it even better than the Ebelin with acetone.
