The best way to remove acrylic nails is by following these steps:

  1. Start by cutting the nails down as short as possible using nail clippers. This will make the removal process easier.
  2. Use a nail file to gently file off the top layer of the acrylic nails. Be careful not to file too aggressively to avoid filing into your natural nails.
  3. Fill a bowl with warm water and soak your nails in it for about 10-15 minutes. This will help to soften the acrylic and make it easier to remove.
  4. After soaking, remove your hands from the water and dry them. Take a wooden cuticle stick or an orange stick and carefully push the softened acrylic off your natural nails. Be gentle and avoid applying too much pressure, as this can damage your nails.
  5. If there are still stubborn traces of acrylic left, you can gently buff the remaining residue using a fine-grit buffer.
  6. Once the acrylic is completely removed, moisturize your nails and cuticles with cuticle oil or a moisturizing hand cream to nourish and protect them.


It's important to note that if you are unsure about removing your acrylic nails at home, or if you have any concerns about damaging your natural nails, it is recommended to seek professional assistance from a nail technician.

The best way to remove acrylic nails is by following these steps:

  1. Gather the necessary materials: You'll need a nail file, nail clippers, a bowl of warm water, acetone, aluminum foil, cotton balls or pads, and cuticle oil.
  2. Trim the acrylic nails: Use nail clippers to trim the acrylic nails as short as possible. This will make the removal process easier.
  3. File the surface: Gently file the shiny outer layer of the acrylic nails with a coarse nail file. Be careful not to file too much, as this can damage your natural nails.
  4. Soak the nails in acetone: Pour acetone into a bowl and soak your nails in it for about 15-20 minutes. You can speed up the process by warming the acetone slightly.
  5. Wrap the nails: Take small pieces of cotton and soak them in acetone. Place a soaked cotton piece on each nail, then wrap the nails with aluminum foil to secure the cotton in place. Keep the wraps on for around 20-30 minutes.
  6. Remove the wraps: After the specified time, gently remove the foil wraps and cotton pads. The acrylic nails should now be soft and slightly lifted.
  7. Gently remove the remaining acrylic: Use a cuticle stick or a metal nail pusher to gently push the softened acrylic off your natural nails. Avoid applying too much pressure to prevent damage.
  8. Clean and moisturize: Once all the acrylic is removed, wash and dry your hands. Apply cuticle oil or a moisturizing nail treatment to nourish your nails and cuticles.


Remember to be patient and gentle throughout the process to avoid harming your natural nails. If you're unsure or uncomfortable with removing acrylic nails yourself, it's best to visit a professional nail technician.
