Removing Gel Nails: Cutex Launches New Nail Polish Remover for Gel,Glitter, & Dark Polishes

Chapped gel nails got you down? Take the polish off right at home.

Cutex, the leading producer of nail care products since 1911, introduces its latest innovation, the Cutex SPA Formula Nail Polish Remover.

The new SPA Formula combines the power of acetone with natural botanical nourishing oils including apricot seed, flax seed and perilla oils, for users of gel, Shellac, glitter and other hard-to-remove nail polishes. The remover works as well as 100 percent acetone, yet moisturizes and conditions nails even after the first use.

"We are thrilled to offer a new solution for women wanting a powerful nail polish remover formula that is both nourishing and strengthening and without the damaging effects of pure acetone remover," said Barbara Hershfelt, Director of Sales and Marketing for Cutex. "Our 100-year heritage is founded on new and innovative products and SPA Formula is the perfect solution for nail enthusiasts who desire to keep their nails looking and feeling healthy, strong and beautiful."

Cutex's SPA Formula Nail Polish Remover combines the power of acetone (98.4 percent) with the strengthening and nourishing capabilities of Cutex's patented natural drying oils. These natural drying oils begin as a liquid and turn into a solid when exposed to air as the acetone evaporates. Through the drying process nails are strengthened, leaving them feeling healthy and clean after just one use.

Consumer research conducted in 2013 indicates that a majority of women surveyed by Cutex® (91 percent) prefer SPA Formula over 100 percent acetone nail polish remover because it did a better job 'conditioning' and 'strengthening' their nails than their current products.

Cutex SPA Formula Nail Polish Remover retails for $4.49 and is available in 10oz. bottles. The new SPA Formula is sold in select stores nationwide and online at
