Have You Ever Made a Beauty Discovery?

Have You Ever Made a "Weird Science" Beauty Discovery?

A while ago I tested out a new, supposedly eco-friendly polish that just didn't work. The color was pretty, but it peeled the first day, and the polish that didn't come off started getting weirdly transparent — all this with topcoat. Recently, though, I managed to misplace both the pink shade I've been using and my usual acetone-free polish remover. I had to use the peely polish again, and had to remove what was left of my previous manicure with pure acetone. And guess what? This time the polish stuck — beautifully. I don't know what to think about a "green" polish that needs a noxious chemical like acetone to make it stick, but beauty chemistry is endlessly interesting to me. Have you ever had something like this happen? And did you keep using the product after your discovery? I want to hear your stories, so tell me about it in the comments!
