How to remove artificial nails
To prevent damage to your natural nails, it is important to follow the best method for removing artificial nails.
The best way to remove artificial nails at home is to soak your nails in a bowl of acetone nail polish remover or you can even use hot, soapy water, soaking the nails for about 10 minutes to soften the nail adhesive.
Once the adhesive has softened, you should be able to use tweezers to gently pull the artificial nails away.
