How To Remove Acrylic Nails

Acrylic Nails2

Cover your work surface with a towel. Acetone can damage furniture.

Next, pour the acetone nail polish remover into the bowl, deep enough to cover your fingertips. Coat your cuticles and the tips of your fingers in petroleum jelly, leaving the nails bare. This will help protect your skin from the harsh acetone.

Soak fingertips in the acetone. Try to keep only your nails in the solution, not your entire fingers.


Use the cuticle sticks to gently scrape away the softened acrylic. The gel may be sticky and gooey, and it can take several rounds of soaking and gentle scraping to remove most of it. Be careful not to scrape at the surface of the underlying nail.


When the acrylic is nearly gone, wash and dry hands and allow the nails to air-dry completely. Use your buffer to smooth away any remaining bits of acrylic, again being careful not to damage the natural nail.


Some people prefer to leave a thin coat of acrylic, to avoid any risk of scratching the nail surface. Apply moisturizer to skin to help soothe away any irritation.
