Removing fake acrylic nails at home can be a pain but below are two of the best ways on how to remove acrylic nails painlessly with acetone at home at your convenience. You can even be entertained putting on your favorite movie before starting the process of removing your acrylic nails.

Removing your acrylic nails at the nail salon can be costly as well as time-consuming but is recommended by a lot of professionals. I personally do not like going to the nail salon to remove my fake acrylic nails because I prefer to remove acrylic nails at home pain-free. Some nail technicians can hurt your nails by not taking their time, so I listed the two best ways on how to remove acrylic nails painlessly with acetone at home below.

SUPPLIES NEEDED
100% pure acetone
A regular nail clipper or a nail clipper for acrylic nails
Nail Buffer or a nail file
* Cotton balls or cotton face/makeup pads
Aluminum foil – cut aluminum foil into pieces that can securely wrap around your fingers.
* Cuticle stick or orange stick
*
Vaseline, lotion or cuticle oil

PROCESS

  1. Remove nail polish and design from the acrylic nail with nail polish remover or use a nail file to away the top coat.
  2. Clip your acrylic nails down as short as you can. This process can be painful for some people
  3. Pry up the edges of your acrylic nails so that acetone can penetrate the acrylic and glue.
  4. Apply Vaseline, lotion or cuticle oil around cuticle area and finger where acetone will touch but not your acrylic nails.
  5. Soak the cotton balls or pads in acetone.
  6. Put acetone-soaked cotton balls or pads on acrylic nails (completely covering acrylic nails) and wrap with foil wrap immediately.
  7. Leave foil wrap on fingers for about 35 to 40 minutes.
  8. DO ONE FINGER AT A TIME!!!
    Gently remove one foil wrap and check to see if the acrylic nail comes off with it or slides off easily.
  9. IF acrylic nail does not come off easily then please put aluminum foil back on your finger and wait an additional ten minutes or resoak cotton ball and repeat the process with a shorter waiting time.

I have read a few places that acrylic nails that are treated with acetone will start to harden if you do not take the acrylic nail off as soon as possible, so that is why I advise doing one nail at a time. You can dip all of your acrylic nails in the acetone at one time but try to keep as much of them in the bowl with taking off the acrylic from one nail.
