Re: DAK's Customizing Discussion Thread

Nail Polish remover doesn't dry greasy. It dries like alcohol.

Re: DAK's Customizing Discussion Thread

So is there an easy way to determine what will be removed by nail polish, and what will remain? Will it take off everything but the base plastic?

Re: DAK's Customizing Discussion Thread

all paint will be removed, along with the gloss coat. what would be left behind is the plastic. It will not remove the color from plastic.
