We all love acrylics – they look fantastic and are a great way to enjoy stylish nails for longer. What isn’t so fantastic, however, is removing them! It’s common to get acrylics removed professionally, especially if you’re getting new nails reapplied on top. However, if you’re looking for advice on how to take acrylic nails off at home, the good news is you can learn how to do it yourself too in a few simple steps.

Love your acrylic nails but want to learn how to remove them safely yourself? Here at Naio Nails, we’ve put together all the information and you need on how to remove fake nails yourself quickly, easily and – most importantly – without causing damage to your nails or nail beds.

One of the most common and easiest ways when it comes to how to remove fake nails is with acetone. Also known as propanone, acetone is a powerful liquid solvent that will quickly and easily remove both gel polish and adhesive. Because of its powerful properties, acetone is used to break down the acrylic so it can be easily lifted off the nail – but can be quite drying if used too heavily or frequently on natural nails.

This will reduce the surface area of the nail, allowing the acetone to penetrate the area of your natural nails more easily. Cut down to where your natural nails begin – not too low though or you could damage your natural nail.

Run the nail file across the nail in a back and forth motion. The idea is to thin the acrylic, making it easier for the acetone to penetrate. Make sure not to file too deep, if you file too much, you run the risk of damaging your natural nail.

Remove just one of the wraps, then gently use a cuticle pusher to scrape the softened acrylic off. If the acetone has penetrated enough, the acrylic should lift and slide off easily. If the acrylic is still a little hard underneath, reapply the wrap and leave your nails to soak for a further five minutes before trying again. You can repeat this process for each nail until the acrylic has been completely softened and removed, don’t be afraid to re-soak your cotton wool with acetone if it’s getting a little dry.
