How to remove false nails at home?

You would like to be able to do your removal at home on your own without having to call on a nail technician to remove your false nails! In this article, the nail supply expert Maryton will give you some tips and tricks to be able to do your removal simply and without damaging your nails!

Apply false nails with acetone!

Applying false nails with acetone is the simplest and easiest method to do. This method dissolves the glue from the false nails and if you use it repeatedly it will weaken and irritate the skin around your nails!

Cut: cut your false nails fairly short beforehand, this will make removal easier!

Soak: Dip your nails in acetone and let them soak for about 15 to 20 minutes. This will allow the acetone to dissolve the glue.

Peel off: Use a cuticle pusher or tweezers to gently remove softened false nails. If the glue resists, you can let them soak for a few more minutes.

Moisturize: Once everything is removed, moisturize your nails and cuticles with a nourishing oil or cream to help them recover from removal.

Apply false nails without acetone!

There are different alternative methods without using acetone to remove your false nails. You can just as easily opt for acetone-free or natural solvents, a little less effective than acetone nail polish remover but much less irritating and more pleasant.

You can practice an even simpler method which is the use of hot water. Soak your hands in a bowl of warm water for about 15 to 20 minutes, this will help soften the clinging glue from the false nails.

Finally, we advise you to proceed carefully with these removal methods to avoid causing damage to your natural nails. In addition, I recommend investing in some manicure sets to care for your nails.
