    Welcome to the forum, takeit.

    Both are possible in certain contexts.

    Please note the punctuation and capitalisation I have added to your question.

    "My nail polish came off."
    This means that your nail polish was stripped off the nail by something.

    "Don't worry, this nail polish comes off."
    This means that the nail polish is removable.
