Why Does It Matter How You Remove Your Polish?
First off, if you’re tempted to pick, rip, or bite of your gel polish or acrylic nails, stop in your tracks! This is the first “DIY” solution that most people come up with, and it’s easily the worst for your nails. Whenever you peel off your polish, layers of your nail bed will come with it. To avoid damaging your nails, make sure you remove your gel nail polish or acrylic nails the right way. This involves soaking your nails in acetone.

Always before you begin..

Buff the surface your nail Gently and slowly sanding down the top layer of polish with a coarse nail file (180/180) can help to remove gel polish and acrylic nails. The goal here is not to remove all of the polish. Rather, you’re just looking to rough up the topcoat. Be sure to take it slow, remove the shine, and then move on to one of the next steps. (This step breaks the seal of your top coat and makes it easier for the acetone to get to work)

Option 1 – Aluminum Foil


  Soak cotton balls and wrap with foil Make sure you cover your surface You Will Need |Aluminum Foil – Cut into 10 equal Squares (approximately 3″x3″ squares) – 10 Cotton Balls & AcetoneTake one cotton ball, apply acetone, place it on the foil square. Place your nail on the cotton ball and wrap your fingertips. You’ll have to let this sit for up to 30 minutes before seeing whether the polish is ready to come off with little to no pressure. During this time, you aren’t able to use your hands at all.

Option 2 – Soaking in a Bowl ofAcetone

  Put your nails in a bowl of acetone An alternative to using foil and cotton balls is putting your nails in a bowl of 100% acetone. While effective and not near as messy. You are sitting for approximately 30 minutes without being able to use your hands.

Option 3 – Finger Nail Clips

Works like aluminum foil, the clips are designed to hold the acetone soaked cotton ball securely on your fingertip. Soak for approximately 30 minutes.    

After reading all of the methods above, you’re probably wondering…
