The first step in removing acrylic from nails is to cut nails down with clippers. Next file off gel sealer and seventy percent of acrylic with file or nail dimmer. The demonstrator then cut ten squares of foil, one for each nail. After the foil is completed cut cotton rounds into four pieces. You will only need two and a half cotton rounds. Using one hundred percent acetone saturate each cotton piece that you cut. Place saturated cotton pieces on each finger and then wrap securely with foil. Leave this application on for forty five minutes soaking each nail completely. After the forty five minutes are complete remove foil and cotton. Using a cuticle pusher, remove as much acrylic as possible. You will now take a file and file edge of nails as well as top of nail using circular pattern to smooth. Next, you will saturate another whole cotton round and wipe off any remaining acrylic residue. If you are going to apply a new set now is the time to prep nails, if not buff nails with a four sided labeled buffer. Buff nails to a shine.
