I have heard rumours that the best thing is Fairy Power spray?
I've used power spray a lot on plastics with no problems but never tried it on finecast

No idea on acetone free nail varnish remover though, sorry

I'm using Cif Power spray on some Resin at the mo.

It does work on metal, but your also into the area of say Nitromores as well.

Any nail polish remover is great for metal. It's what I've used in the past.
