Women all over the world love to do their nails; that’s why there are so many salons all around. It used to be that we would just paint our nails and leave it with a clean look. We were happy with the conservative looks that we have, but there is so much more that we can do with nails these days. These days we have the opportunity to be very expressive which makes us happy. Right? We have the option to paint our nails in many different crazy colors; the sky is the limit.
Acrylic nails are one of the most popular ways of getting your nails done these days. They are popular for a reason because you can do so much with them.
If you have never had acrylic nails before it’s a pretty simple process. The acrylic is just a protective coating that can be applied using a powder polymer as well as a liquid monomer. When the coating is exposed to air, it will start to dry and eventually harden, leaving you with essentially a new nail.
How to Remove Acrylics:
If you get acrylics and want to remove them yourself, it can easily be done at home. It’s always best to have them removed at a salon, but many people have done it at home as well. You must be very careful because if you don’t remove them properly, you can damage the nail underneath. The best way to remove the nails is to soak them in an acetone solution. There are many nail polish removers that have acetone in them. They don’t all have acetone in them so make sure you read the bottle before purchasing.
Follow these simple steps to removing your acrylic nails:
- Use a towel on your table because acetone can damage furniture.
- Use a bowl and pour some acetone into it. Make sure it’s deep enough so that you can soak your fingers in it.
- You want to make sure to protect your skin from the acetone so cover your fingertips and cuticles with petroleum jelly. Don’t put any on your nails.
- Soak your fingertips in the solution. Just put your nails in not your whole finger.
- After soaking for 20 minutes in the solution, the gel underneath the acrylics will have grown some and begin to dissolve.
- Use a cuticle stick to remove the softened acrylics. They may, be sticky, and it could take many rounds of soaking to get it all off. Just don’t scrape the surface of the underlying nail as you can cause damage.
- Soak a rag in acetone and try to wipe the acrylic away.
- Once the acrylic is gone, you can go and wash and dry your hands. Make sure you let them dry completely.
- Smooth away any remaining acrylic with a buffer. Again be very careful not to damage your natural nail.
- Use moisturizer to help soothe the skin after.
If you experience and pain or discomfort stop trying to remove the acrylics. Wash your hands with soap and dry them carefully. If irritation continues then, it is time to consult with a doctor. If you find that you have damaged your nail at all stop trying to remove the acrylics.
There is also another method to consider when removing acrylic nails. Many people will soak cotton balls in acetone and then rest them on the nails. You can then wrap the nails in aluminum foil which will hold the cotton in place. This method will dissolve the acrylic without having to soak your fingers. Again you would leave it on for 20 minutes to allow for time to dissolve the acrylic gel. Take the aluminum wrap off and remove each nail, one at a time.
It can be tempting to just snap the acrylics off as the process of removing them can become tedious and slow, but we advise against it. There will be a lot of nail growth underneath the acrylic, and there’s a chance you can rip your own nail off in the process. Even if you could get the acrylic off without pain, you would still risk damaging the nail underneath.
Another tip to remember is not to file away the acrylic paste that can be left on the nail as well. These things need to be dissolved. The paste is too thick just to file away, and you would have a difficult time making it even. Not to mention that there is a good chance you could file away too much. You don’t; want to end up removing or damaging the natural nail that you have underneath.
If all else fails, go to a salon and have a professional take care of things. There is a chance that you could do more harm than good and you have to realize that going to a salon is the best thing for you. There is a chance you could be allergic to acetone so you should not do removal yourself.
