How to remove acrylic nails

Here's what you'll need to try this method:

  •     Acetone nail polish remover (enough to soak the fingertips of both hands)
  •     A small glass bowl large enough for soaking fingertips
  •     Towels to cover your work surface and to dry your hands
  •     Cotton balls or kitchen towel
  •     Petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline
  •     A nail file and a nail buffer with coarse and smooth sides
  •     Cuticle pusher
  •     Nail clippers
  •     Moisturizer, hand cream

To remove your acrylic nails, you need to soak them in a bowl filled with acetone, it should cover only your nails not all fingers and hand, soak them approximately 20-30 mins, acrylics become soft and you can just use a cuticle pusher to scrub them from your nails, be carefull using a metal pusher because u can damage the natural nail, at the end u can wipe the natural nails with a napkin soaked in acetone to clean the last acrylics left on nails. If the natural nails are very thin buff them gently with a 2 side smoothing buffer, doont buff too much, just a little. Wash your hands then do a nail treatment, you can do it yourself at home, buy in a beauty supply store a cuticle and nail treatment oil or cream and jently massage it into the nails and a surrounding skin, best to do it before you go to bed. And be carefull with acetone, dont rub your eyes or eat while soaking the nails in acetone.
