How to remove your acrylic nails at home in 5 easy steps

Getting acrylics nails has become as common as getting your eyebrows done these days. They not only look gorgeous but look great on special occasions, especially for people who cannot grow their natural nails and maintain them. It helps that acrylic nails are rather low maintenance and last for quite a long time if you take proper care of them, but on the downside, it is frustrating to take them off as they are glued to your natural nails. It can get a bit difficult for you to take out time and visit a salon to get them off, so today, we are going to list down five easy steps that you can easily follow and take off your acrylics without any hassle. Here we go

Step 1:

The very first step you need to follow is to remove any gems or jewels you might have put on your nails with the help of a nail nipper. You need to be very careful while doing this as nail nippers are sharp, and you might hurt your cuticles or fingers.

Step 2:

After you have removed all the nail accessories from your acrylic nails, now is the time to cut that excess length of the nail extension by using a nail cutter so that you can easily remove the nail that is left on top of your original nails.

Step 3:

The next step you need to follow is to rough off the surface of gel nail polish applied on your acrylics by using a rough side of a nail buffer, this will thin out the layered up gel nail polish and will help out remove the fake nails quite easily.

Step 4:

Next you need to grab a bottle of 100% acetone into a small bowl or container so you can soak your nails in it, then place your nails into this solution for 5 minutes, take your nails out and push your acrylic off from your cuticles to the tip of your nails with the help of a metal nail pusher.

Repeat the above step as long as you get all the acrylic nails off from your natural nails, but be careful while pushing off the acrylics as you might damage your real nails.

Step 5:

 Once all your acrylic nails completely come off, use the buffer softly on your nails to remove any little traces of acrylic left on your nails and file the edges of your natural nails.

Acetone will dry out your natural nails to restore moisture apply cuticle oil all over your nail beds, and rub it in with the help of soft side of the nail buffer. Now rub some oil on your cuticles as well for hydration and massage it in. It is very important to moisturize your skin and nails after you use acetone as it will immensely drying.
