Iv'e seen both spellings of the phrase. Is one correct and the other incorrect or are they both acceptable? Does one belong to British English?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
"Ware off" is simply incorrect regardless of whether we're talking British or American English. It is not in use at all.
I have always used the assimilation factor of the proper use of this phrase: If anything were to be "worn off"? Then in relation to its friend, would be to "wear off." So....I'd go with "wear off". d*
