Can’t have your acrylic nails removed? Don’t worry, here is the solution to do it at home

Getting the acrylic nails done is a very useful option when you can't be taking care of your nails constantly. However, removing them can become a headache. Learn to remove them at home in an easy way!

Acrylic nails are a very good option when you can’t be taking care of your nails all the time. As a result of the combination of some liquids and air, a solid and strong material is formed, creating the well-known acrylic nails. 

How to remove acrylic nails?

They not only look good for many days, but they can be longer too. Besides, color or nail art does not come off or break. Acrylic nails are also very useful when the nails are broken because reconstruction can be made with the material. However, the removal can take some time because people usually go to have them removed. Here you have the solution to not leave home. 

Elements needed:


Step 1: Clip off your excess acrylics

First things first, cut your acrylic nails as much as you can until they are close to your real nails. This will make the process easier for you but be careful not to cut the skin around the nails. 

Step 2: Lift the acrylic nail

Now, lift the edges of the acrylic nail in a soft way. You can use tweezers.

Step 3: Have the acetone and a bowl in handy

In the bowl, pour the acetone-free nail polish remover.

Step 4: Soak your fingers

Once you place the product in the bowl, soak your nails in it for about five minutes. Make sure you cover the whole nail in order to have your acrylic nails removed. 

Tip: In this case, there are two different ways: 

  1. One is to wrap each fingertip in foil with an acetone-soaked piece of cotton
  2. The second way is soaking your fingers in the bowl. 

Step 5: Finish removing the acrylic nails

When you notice the nails are getting loose, use the tweezers once more to remove them from your fingertips. Then gently scrape to eliminate the last bits of acrylic nails.

Step 6: Use a cuticle oil

Finally, you can massage cuticle oil into your nails to rehydrate them.
