Sometimes when removing the false nails, the glue will stick on your natural nails or sometimes you may accidentally get some on your skin. Therefore you must know the technique in removing it. The things you need to prepare to perfectly remove the false nail glue from nails are the following: (1) towel; (2) large bowl; (3) warm water; (4) acetone remover; (5) cotton balls; and (6) nail file.
Step # 1 – Softening the glue
Put warm water in a large bowl then soak your nails for at least 2 minutes to soften the glue in your nails. Some glue can be easily removed so you need to wipe them out with a towel. The larger clumps of glue are then left and can be removed with a nail file.
Filing them should not be too hard because it can damage the nails. If you can still find remaining glue on your nails, put nail polish remover in a cotton ball and rub it gently on the affected area of your nails and skin. A plain acetone can be used instead of acetone nail polish remover but bear in mind that acetone is hard on your skin and nails. In some cases that your skin or nails feel irritated, you must stop for a while and continue it later.
Step # 2 – Precautions when filing your nails
These are important measures to consider if you want to make sure you are removing glue from your false nails conveniently. It is not advisable to file your nails too thinly or too hard when you are filing them to take off excess glue on your fingernails. It may cause your nails to become brittle and they might crack. Try to file the nails gently.
Step # 3 – After care
After you are done removing all glues on both nails and skin, wash your hands thoroughly with mild soap and water to wash out acetone solution. Since acetone is flammable and hard on the skin you must remove any traces of it. Make sure no residue of the agent is left in your hands.
These tips have to be considered one-by-one when you want to remove false nail glue from your nails. As you can see, the process is not really that tough. It simply requires patience to finish the job successfully.
