How to remove: 

  1. Clip your nails.Use a nail clipper to trim the tips of your acrylic nails short. Cut off as much of the acrylic as possible. If cutting is difficult due to the thickness of the nails, use a coarse nail file to file them. But make sure you don’t cut any of your nail bed because it will bleed.
  2. File the topcoat off of the nails.Use a fine-grade buffer to file off the paint and remove as much of the acrylic as possible. Use long strokes that run the length of the nail.
  3. Apply petroleum jelly to the skin surrounding your nails.Acetone dissolves plastic and is also hard on skin, so it’s important to protect yourself. This step will prevent your skin from becoming irritated by the acetone, particularly if you have hangnails
  4. Use the acetone to your nails.Saturate one cotton ball per nail in the warmed acetone, and then place the cotton balls on the tips of your fingers. Wrap them tightly against the acrylic nails using strips of aluminum foil. Let your nails soak in the acetone for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the foil and cotton balls from your fingertips.The cotton ball and the nail should come off easily.
  6. Scrape off the leftover acrylic with the nail buffer.The acrylic should be soft from the acetone bath, so take the opportunity to buff the rest of it away. If the acrylic begins to harden again while you’re buffing, use cotton ball soaked in acetone to dampen it.
  7. Shape your natural nails.Use nail clippers and a nail file to smooth the edges. Buff your nails lightly with a fine-grade nail buffer, moving from the base of the nail to the tip.
