Methods for removing acrylic nails

Acrylic gives a superb effect on the nails, they are long and strong, but when the time comes to remove them, some people don’t know how to do it. Because, acrylic cannot be removed with nail polish remover like regular nail polish. So what should you do? Keep reading, the nail expert Maryton will show you several methods for removing acrylic from nails without damaging them.

Remove the acrylic with a manual or electric file

Either a manual or electric nail file can be used to remove acrylic nails. But you can only use an electric nail file if you have the proper technique. Otherwise I advise you to remove the largest part with an electric file and finish with a manual file so as not to damage your nails. If in doubt, leave a very thin layer of acrylic, it will not show when re-growing.

Remove acrylic by melting it

This method is to use pads soaked in an acetone-based solution such as the thinner which contains nourishing oils or simply by letting the nails soak in the thinner and then scrape gently with a wooden cuticle pusher. Acrylic blends quite poorly compared to gel polishes, so be patient or use a file to finish the job.
