i’m newly back to painting my own nails, and don’t ever use glue ons or glue for anything, so can’t really speak to that. for basic removal of polish, this stuff is amazing. it has ZERO ODOR which is what was most surprising to me. on top of that, i was surprised by its more oily consistency and skeptical that it would removed anything very well. it may take a bit more work than an acetone remover, but it is well worth it when your nails aren’t thoroughly stripped and brittle and your fingers and cuticles completely dried out. the oil consistency of the remover acts as it’s own cuticle treatment and no dried out fingers or cuticles!! my only gripe is that you really have to make sure the top is screwed on super securely. i placed the bottle along with a few static liquid lacquers into a travel bag and came home from a road trip to discover that half the bottle of remover had spilled out. and sadly this remover is in such high demand that both clear and pink versions are sold out. hope they come back into stock before i run out of the remainder of this bottle. i sure don’t want to have to resort to using acetone remover again!!
