Ive had fake acyrlic nails for almost a year now. I love long nails but can never get mine to grow what ashame I know... So I got me a full set of fake nails I kept up with fills every 2 1/2 wks to 3 weeks it came to the point that this time I didnt want to waste money getting them filled again I vowed to remove them and I didnt go to the salon to have them removed I did it at home.
First I clipped my acyrlic nails taking off pry about 1/8th of an inch I left them just a tad over my finger tips. I filled them so they werent jagged this didnt really matter.
For the second part the soak off process I got a large plastic bowl with HOT water HOT water helps activate the acetone and make it work faster I than put a glass bowl in the plasti bowl to put my acetone in. I let each hand soak around 10 minutes most people recommend 20 to 30 minutes but my acyrlic turned to gel quick. I buffed the gel off with my nail file and washed my hands several times and would dip my hand back in acetone to losen the acyrlic up more if necessary between soaking and a lot of buffing I was able to get the acyrlic off my nails they were very sore and brittle.
My last step to the process was rebuilding my nails I was able to not lose a lot of length when I took m nails off which I was happy about as I like long nails. I washed my hands a final time dipped my nails in vaseline to add moisture back into my nails I rubbed this in and on my hands also used a base coat before polishing I than polished and finished with a top coat.
Since doing all this last night I have to say Im happy with the overall outcome my nails are a little weak but not as weak as I expected the are hard near the tips where they are longer which is what I want for natural growth.
Hopefully I dont break a nail as I have a hard time growing my own nails :) The color im wearing is Zoya Anaka
