Nail Removal & Care: A How-To Guide
If you’re wondering how to care for your natural and false nails, our helpful guide will take you through all you need to know. Our uber stylish false nails aren’t just for one-time wear; with just a little extra care, you can actually reuse your favourites many times over.
Step 1: How to Remove False Nails Safely
Our nail glue offers a spectacular hold to ensure that your false nails last through all your daily activities including washing dishes, showering, working out, etc. However, our false nails can be removed in a number of ways.
To remove your nails without damaging them, soak your nails in a bowl of warm, soapy water for at least 20 minutes. This loosens the false nails and they can be gently peeled off without damaging them. You can use a cuticle pusher to gently loosen the nails from the edges. You can also use a little cuticle oil on the edges of your nail to help loosen the false nail prior to soaking it in water.
Another way to remove your false nails is by soaking them in acetone-based nail polish remover for a few minutes. As your false nails start loosening up, you can gently peel them off. You will not be able to reuse your false nails with this method.
It is important to never use force when removing your false nails as this can damage your natural nails underneath. Keep in mind that, with nail art on your false nails, the nails may not retain their integrity when removed so it is best to use a fresh nail next time.
Step 2: How to Remove Nail Glue
You may be left with some residual glue on your natural nail as well on the inside of the false nail. Remove this by buffing your nail with our file. This should remove most of the glue. You can also use our acetone-based Gel Polish Remover to wipe away any remnants of glue that weren’t buffed off.
To remove residual glue off your false nail, dip a Q-tip in our Gel Polish Remover and wipe away the leftover glue.
Step 3: How to Care for Natural and False Nails
Removing false nails can dry out your hands so moisturize your hands, nails and cuticles liberally with a natural oil like almond oil or olive oil. You can also use cuticle oil that is specially formulated to nourish and replenish your cuticles.
Dry your false nails and store them in their original packaging according to their widths. This will help keep your nails in order so you can reuse them with ease.
