How to remove acrylic nails at home

If you ask me, one of the most common and foolproof ways to remove acrylics without damaging your natural nails is to do an acetone soak. This is basically almost the same process that's used at salons. Yet, this is the most effective way of how to remove acrylic nails .

To complete the acetone soak, firstly pour 100 percent pure acetone into a tray or bowl and soak your nails in it for 5 minutes. Then, with a metal cuticle pusher, gently push the polish off your nails, pushing from your cuticles downward. Redip your nails for five minutes, then gently push again. Repeat until your acrylics have completely soaked off.

If you ran out of acetone, or you are alergic to ir, or in case you just don't want to use it, here is another option for you. Simply fill a bowl or sink with hot, soapy water and soak your nails for about 10 minutes. Soaking will help soften the adhesive and make it quicker to remove the false nails. Once you've soaked your nails, use a cotton pad or swab to peel off the fake nail from its base gently.
