ACRYLICS REMOVAL

 

Acetone Bowl Method

Step 1) Carefully clip off your excess acrylics, cutting them as close as possible to your real nails.

 

Step 2) Using a nail file, rough up the surface of the polish until the shine is gone. Removing the top layer helps the polish to soften faster in the acetone.

 

Step 3) Pour acetone into a bowl and soak your nails in it for 5 minutes.

 

Step 4) With a metal cuticle pusher, gently push the polish off your nails, pushing from your cuticles downward.

 

Step 5) Re-dip your nails for 5 minutes, then gently push again. Repeat until your acrylics have completely soaked off.

 

Step 6) Buff off the rest of the smaller pieces with your nail buffer.

 

Step 7) Massage cuticle oil into your nails to rehydrate them
