In brief: Acetone...
...Works best. It's the main ingredient in nail polish remover (except for the acetone-free kind, of course).

In brief: Cyanoacrylate glue
To remove cyanoacrylate glue- soak effected fingers in nail polish remover containing acetone for several minutes.
As bonds loosen, gently roll fingers back & forth. Don’t do this vigorously. Don’t pull fingers apart – it tears skin. Don’t handle the glue with cotton products as it can cause a chemical reaction that can damage skin. After glue is removed, wash with soap & water. Good luck.
