Acrylic nails are basically false nails that are applied onto one's real nails, with the help of some sort of enhancement material such as acrylic. They are considered to be very safe, provided the process is performed by a professional, who is aware of the latest techniques and methods.
Many a times, people who go for acrylic nails face a number of problems when it comes to removing the nails, once they have served their purpose. It is very important to be aware of the correct way to remove the acrylic nails; otherwise there is a possibility that one may severely damage his real nails.
A very popular, cheap and effective way of removing the acrylic nails is to use acetone. One must buy pure acetone, which is easily available from any store that sells regular nail polish remover. The nails should then be clipped as far as possible. Now the elaborate method is as follows. Take some aluminum foil and cut it into squares. Now, wet the cotton balls with acetone, lay it on the nail and cover it as tightly as possible with the aluminum foil. Repeat the procedure for all 10 nails or do one hand at a time. Do not open the foil for at least 20 minutes. Once the time elapses, remove the foils one at a time and with a wood pusher or orange wood stick scrape the acrylic off. Ideally it should come right off, however the process can be repeated if there are some traces left. Another way of removing the nails using acetones is to soak the hands in warm water for some time. Then soak them in acetone and the acrylic nails will then become soft and easily remove.
It is very important to remember that once the entire process is over, one should massage the hand with a good hand cream as the acetone can thoroughly dry the skin.
