Removal of acrylic nail polish with a healthy way


Tools required


  • Nail file
  • Acetone
  • Manicure sticks
  • Nail buffer
  • Cotton balls
  • Aluminium foil
  • A small pot


Steps to be considered 


  • Avoid filing the nails in the regular way rather thin out the whole acrylic covered area gently. Here, you must keep in mind that your fight is against acrylic, so using a normal grit will be of no or less use. You better go for as coarse grit as possible.


  • Once you feel like much amount of acrylic is buffed away, it’s time to soak off the nails. Pour down acetone into a pot and dip your nails into acetone. Keep the nails dipped until the remaining acrylic layer dissolves.


  • After 20 minutes of soaking check the nails scrupulously. Wherever you locate any softened layer scrape it off using a manicure stick. Keep doing the same as long as a minimum acrylic layer is visible.


Final words


Finally, be further aware while using the grit and acetone. Grit may cause slight injury to the nail-adjacent areas while using acetone in a stuffed room can be responsible for a temporary respiratory irritation.
