Acrylic Nail Removal – Now a Breeze

In the world of fashion, one of the most recent and distinct additions has been that of Nail Fashion.

From simple nail shades to gel nails, nail art to the mighty acrylic nails, it seems other accessories have taken a backseat as people turn to adorn their nails as the perfect, and most unique look completer.

However, if you still haven’t walked the nail path in fear that your acrylic nails won’t come off or will cost a great deal in doing so – we have news for you.

We at Neo nails have come up with a simple DIY so that you don’t have to look up for “nail salon near me Miami” when you want to remove your acrylic nails.




Step 1: Remove The Embellishments

Before you start working on your acrylics, make sure you remove all the decorations like rhinestones with a nipper.


Step 2: Dip Your Nails In Hot Water

Take a bowl of lukewarm water and submerge your hands into it. This softens the hard-acrylic nails before filing and cutting.


Step 3: Trimming and Filing

Grab your nail clipper and get to work. Cutting your long and beautiful acrylics will be difficult, but soldier on. Try to cut them as short as possible (but not too deep!).

Once you’re done, file your nails and remove the gel on your acrylics. You’ll need a really good filer for this. Be careful though, you don’t want to file off your nail bed.


Step 4: Prepping To Soak Nails In Acetone

Generously lather your cuticles with petroleum jelly to further soften them and prevent them from getting dry due to Acetone.


Step 5: Dip Nails In Acetone

This bit is important, pour 100% acetone on a tray or a dish and dip all of your fingernails in it, all at the same time.

This should take about 5 minutes but you need to keep them soaked till all the product is well dissolved. Also, be sure to only dip your fingers nail-deep, the solution might damage your skin so be careful while you do this step!

Tip: A safer option would be to dip cotton balls in Acetone solution and place them over your nails. Keep them in place by wrapping your nails with aluminum foil for 20-30 minutes.


Step 6: Scraping Them Off

Use a tweezer or a metal pusher to remove your acrylic nail now that the acetone solution has done its work and loosened the nail.

Make sure you don’t push your acrylics too hard near the cuticles as that can cause damage.

If you feel they haven't loosened up enough, repeat step 5 for a few more minutes. This should do the trick.

Remember, this process requires patience for good results (cue: Stormi Webster exclaiming

Patience, Patience in the background).



What Next? Buff, Apply Cuticle Oil and Moisturize

Once you’ve successfully removed the acrylics, buff your nails to give them a shine.

Be sure to moisturize your nails with cuticle oil to protect them from damage and remove dryness. Your cuticles will thank us for this one.

You don’t want your nails to look rugged and rough, after looking so pretty do you?
