Rubbing Alcohol
Napkin / Cotton Ball / Tissue

Take your cotton ball or napkin and get it wet with alcohol
Wipe (scrub) the spot on your skin where you want to remove the polish.

I used 70% rubbing alcohol. I did read somewhere that if you want the alcohol to remove polish from your nails it must be 99%. That could be the reason why it didn’t work. However, after some light scrubbing the polish came off skin relatively easy.

Know of any other items you can use to remove fingernail polish? Let me know so I can try it out!
