I have used this product on and off for years and love it! I have read some reviews about the burning and I was informed by the company that it should never hurt or burn. That if it does then one of two things is happening. I have removed artificial nails recently and the nails are not strong enough yet to use a alcohol based product on or that I am allergic to something in the product. Either way if this occurs to stop using immediately. I have never experienced this myself but thought I would share so anyone else experiencing this would not endure but stop. My nails are beautiful and I am asked often who does them. I proudly state they are mine! Hope this helps.
