But do not reinvent the wheel.In this article we will tell you in detail about how to remove the extended nails at home.

How to remove extended acrylic nails at home?
Acrylic is a very hard, but at the same time brittle material that hardens on contact with air and softens when acetone is applied to it. This is the last property we will use.
First you need to prepare the nails: you need to remove the extra length of the nail. It can be mowed with the help of a special “cutter” device or nail forceps. Be careful and take care of your eyes, because sharp fragments from nails can get into them. Do not shear the nail at the very root, as you can damage the skin adjacent to the nail plate.
The next step is to remove the finish gel from the nail. They cover their nails to make them shine. Finish-gel can be carefully cut with an abrasive file of 80 - 100 grit.
To remove the actual acrylic, too, need to prepare. It can be easily removed with a special acrylic remover Acrylic Nail Remover. If it is not, then you need to stock up on acetone or acetone - containing nail polish remover, cotton pads and rectangular pieces of foil measuring approximately 12 by 7 cm, one such rectangle per nail.
So, you have everything ready. You can proceed. Cotton pads can be cut in half. Take one half, moisten it abundantly in acetone, put it on the nail plate and wrap the upper phalanx of the finger with foil so tightly that air does not flow there. At the end of the finger, the protruding end of the foil is recommended to be twisted like a candy wrapper from a candy. Do the same with all the nails and leave for 35-40 minutes. After that, release one finger from the foil and cotton pad. Make sure that the acrylic is soft and jelly-like. Now you can gently scrape it off with a fingernail using any suitable object. This must be done quickly enough so that the acrylic does not have time to harden again. The remaining acrylic from the nail plate can be removed with a cotton pad dipped in acetone.This procedure should be done consistently with all the nails.
How to remove the extended gel nails at home?
Gel nails can only be cut. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on this, about 15 minutes on each nail.
At the first stage, gel nails as well as acrylic need to be cut. Then the file will be used. Be very attentive and scrupulous when choosing it. Keep in mind that glass files, notched iron files, buffs, and europalse will not work. They will spoil even before you have time to cut something. You can use a file with an abrasive coating 100 - 150 grit. Take it comfortably in your hand, make sure that it does not rub your fingers to the calluses, and gently, layer by layer, begin to cut the gel off the nail. Pay attention that the hand in which the file is located moves with you. Try to fix the finger from which you cut the nail, so as not to damage your nail plate. Be prepared for the fact that there will be a lot of dust, so you can wear a mask to not breathe it.
In order to determine whether the gel remained on the nail plate, you can wipe the nail with a cotton pad dipped in nail polish remover. Gel and nail get wet at different speeds, so you will see clear boundaries.When you realize that the gel remains quite a bit, continue to work with a file with a fine abrasive. The material will begin to peel off and can be peeled off with small pieces, such as orange sticks.
Nails grown by biogel can be removed in the same way as acrylic nails.
After the extended nails are successfully removed with your hands and nails, special care is necessary.
Take sunflower or olive oil, warm it slightly and massage into the nail plate with massage movements. Next, it is recommended to polish the nails. You can do this with a piece of soft suede. So you prevent the exfoliation of the nails and make them shiny. And at the end of the whole procedure, lubricate your hands with a cream.
