1. Nail art isn’t alone about glitter and plain hues, if you see some embellishments on, use a tweezer to remove them.
2. Follow it up by trimming the excess nails with a nail clipper.
3. Next up, prep your nails to get better soaked by acetone so the nail paints wear off easily. Pick up a nail buffer and gently run it on your nails to scrape it off.
4. Pour acetone into a bowl or a tray that can help you drench your fingers with the elixir.
5. After you let your nails drink up the acetone for 5 minutes, use a nail pusher to splinter the nail polish from your cuticles. Be fragile and do not force remove.
6. Shift your fingers back inside the liquid and wait it out for a couple of minutes. This can ease up the process of nail polish removal for you.
7. You can repeat the above step until the acrylic is ready to come off completely. The solution is key here.
8. Get rid of all the residue left with a nail buffer and smother your nails with cuticle oil. The cuticle oil can feed your nails with a protective layer of moisture. So, use your fingers to massage it all over the cuticle bed.
