You mean the nail polish, or the actual finish? The acetone should not affect the firearm finish unless you leave it sitting on there. I use it for cleanup constantly. I'm covered in it most the day.

on most metal surfaces like aluminum, the finish is anodized and acetone will not harm it. maybe some polymer pistols it might affect the plastic. it might even remove paint, but not anodizing and most AR's have anodized finishes.

It won't affect polymer either unless you drop the frame in a bucket of the stuff and leave it a while

Caution is always the best road. I paint / finish / customize an average of 20-30 guns a week thats the only reason I can speak so confidently on the matter.

Duracoat. When done right and properly cured the stuff is incredible.

I used to use nail polish. Then found out people been using "Textor" enamel paint than nail polish. Bought the kit for $13.80 with free shipping from Amazon. The kit comes with 8 colors, a brush and a paint remover.
I recommend them for color filling firearms. Colors are bright and long lasting.
