Removing acrylic nails
I had acrylic nails for about a year. I really like how it made my nails strong, it was virtually impossible to brake them. But now I felt that I for one, cant afford going back every four weeks and also that I kinda want to have short nails. So a couple of days ago I decided that I would remove the acrylic and I thought I would show you how I did it.
First thing I do is soak my nails in acetone to soften the acrylic. I do that by soaking a cotten pad in acetone and then wraping it around my nails. I secure it with a piece of tin foil and leave it on for about 20 min. I read magizines while waiting =)When the acrylic is soft it is very easy t scrape it off the nail. I then use a buffing file on the nail to remove any resedo and get down to my natural nail:
