Run hot water over it. Let it set there in the hot water for a few minutes. That's always worked for me.

Do the hotwater thing, and see if you can get any remover underneath the lid...not 2 much, you don't want it to get in the polish. I had a bottle stuck once and was able to get it loose with a little remover.

Get an ujustable wrench and gentley turn the bottle gentlely , I always get my bootles stuck and this helps , when you get the top off put some cuticle oil on the inside of the bottle and around the top of th bottle

Run it through hot water, then wait about 2 mins and then try opening it. Once you get it open take a about a quarter sized piece of paper towel and sock it in remover. Put in around the opening and put the cap back on. Twist, twist, twist, and you wont have the same problem anytime soon.

I always use hot water. Once you get it off, be sure to clean the rim with nail polish so it doesn't happen again! I used a wrench to get a cap off once and it actually broke the bottle, so I'm not brave enough to try it anymore :P

I get a cotton ball soppy with nail polish remover, turn the bottle upside down and run the cotton all the way around the rim letting the remover soak in underneath the lid, and then let it sit on the counter that way for a couple minutes. Then it comes right off!

Currently my Nail Envy is stuck too. I've soaked it in hot water until the water went cold, tried using nail polish and even a wrench. And I too, have had a bottle burst open on me, so I'm hesitant to try anything stronger!

But I won't throw it away...... in case one day it decides to open!!!
