your assumption would be correct. high spirits alcohol is much better than fingernail polish.

The Tuniq tower screws can't be screwed on THAT tight that pliers will have problems unscrewing them and might slip. Only fingers have problems unscrewing them, which is why I found it much easy to use pliers to carefully help unscrew the TT screws.
