If you’re looking for a way to remove your acrylics nails yourself, then this blog post is just for you. We’ll go over what the process is like and do it at home without costly salon visits. As always, we hope that this blog post helps.
Are you tired of the long wait for your nails to grow out? Do you want a quick fix that doesn’t involve going to the salon? You can remove acrylics yourself.
You’ll need nail clippers, acetone nail polish remover, cotton balls or pads soaked in acetone, and an orange stick. First, cut off each finger from the tip to the base with the nail clipper. Next, dip the cotton ball/pad into acetone and carefully wipe nails until all polish is gone from the top surface of both sides of each nail. Lastly, use an orange stick (or another blunt object) to push down on the middle part of acrylics as hard as possible until it pops off with a light snapping sound.
Remove acrylics nails by yourself
This blog post will give you the most important tips for removing your acrylic nails yourself. You will be able to save time and money by doing it at home, without having to get expensive salon treatments.
- Always file down the acrylic nail polish on a level surface – never use an edge or corner of a table because that can cause the nail bed to split open, which is extremely painful.
- Use acetone in small amounts and only put it over one finger at a time so that it doesn’t dry out your cuticles too much or cause them to peel off completely.
- Apply petroleum jelly around your cuticles before applying any remover so that they don’t dry out as quickly.
The acrylic nails you had professionally done last month are starting to look a little less than perfect. You’re not sure if they will hold up for another week, but you don’t have the time or money to get them redone. Don’t stress out! Here’s how to remove acrylics yourself in just 5 minutes:
- Gather supplies including nail polish remover and cotton balls
- Pour some of the nail polish removers onto each cotton ball and place them over your nails on either side of your fingers (be careful not to cover skin)
- Wait until all the old glue is dissolved off your nails before removing the cotton balls from your fingertips. Then, rinse with soap and water after removing any remaining residue.
At-home gel nail kits are gaining popularity with women who want to do their nails.
It might seem like it would be hard to remove the acrylics yourself, but it’s pretty simple with some patience and time spent filing away at them until they’re ready to come off naturally over time (which could take weeks).
