Nail Polish & Nail Polish Remover

Glucose & Acetone



  • isolated from raisons by Andreas Marggraf in 1747
  • termed "glucose" by Jean Dumas in 1838
  • structure found by Emil Fischer in early 20th century


  • sugar, one of most common carbohydrates and is a monosaccharide
  • glucose essential for gaining energy in humans, animals, & even plants
  • mixed with other chemicals to form nail polish plasticizer (helps polish flexibility, soap & water resistance, etc.)
  • composed of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen
  • needed in brain- adequate levels of glucose helps retain memory
  • popular ingredient in many treats, beverages, and condiments.

Just as Glucose is an essential molecule that gives our bodies energy to function, having Jesus Christ in our hearts gives us the daily strength and energy that we need to survive in the world we live in today.

  • Isaiah 40:29: He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
  • Isaiah 40:31: but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Without Christ in our lives, we would have a weak foundation and eventually fall. Similarly, without glucose in our systems, our bodies would become weary from exhaustion and we would quickly be in danger.


I chose Glucose because it has many functions and can be used for a variety of different things.

Acetone is known as being a solvent, the definition of solvent is something that eliminates something especially unwanted.

  • 1 John 1:9: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and the cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Jesus likewise acts as our solvent and washes away the unwanted sin in our lives, making us clean.


I chose Acetone for this project because it is one of the main ingredients in nail polish remover which I use often in everyday life.
