In this tutorial, we learn how to remove acrylic and gel nails. First, fill a large dish with warm water, large enough to fit a small glass bowl inside. After this, fill the small glass dish with pure acetone. From here, place the bowl inside the large dish and then add in several cotton balls to this. From here, you will place the cotton balls on your nails and then cover them with foil wrappers. Leave these on your nails for around 1 hour and then check on them to see if the acrylic nail is ready to remove. If it is, use a wooden tool to pry it off and then wash the hands off. You will need to moisturize your hands and put oil on the nails to nourish them back to health after this.
