Maybe you got tired of your NexGen nails, and you are thinking about switching up your manicure? Here is how to remove NexGen nails, on your own & at home!
Getting your nails done every 3-4 weeks can be fun, but it is also pricey and considered as a luxury treatment. Women who are trying to save some money can DIY their solutions! If you’ve been playing with the NexGen polish, and you’ve had it on for weeks, it may be time to remove it? However, don’t rush to the nearest salon. Here is how to remove your NexGen nails safe & easy.
How To Remove Nexgen Nails In 6 Steps
Step 1: Preparation
Make sure you have all the needed tools before you begin your process. Get yourself:
Cut your nails with your trustworthy nails clippers. Get them to your ideal size. If a part of your nails lifts up and falls off, don’t be worried. This will make the process even easier. Now, use a thick part of the nail file and buff out the surface. Buff in one direction only, and invest 10 seconds per every nail. Don’t make back and forth motions since this can damage the nail.
Use acetone and fill up your small bowl about halfway through. Meanwhile, use cotton wraps around your fingernails, and apply a bit of acetone onto every piece of cotton. Make sure it is semi-soaked up as you place it on your nails. Once you press the product against your nail, wrap the aluminum foil around your nails. This will allow the polish to lift up even faster.
4. Remove The Foil
You should soak your nails for 10 minutes and see if the NexGen polish lifts up on its own. Wiggle the foil back and forth as you move it from your nail and as you free the nail from the foil. If some parts didn’t lift up, let them soak for a few more minutes. Once everything is off, clip your nails to your preferred length, and shape them with your nail file to your ideal nail shape.
5. Finish Off & Nourish
Lastly, trim your cuticles after you’ve washed your hands. Be very gentle and careful since you don’t want to hurt yourself, nor cause any bleeding. Clean your hands with a towel and make sure they are free of any product before you continue further. Later on add your favorite cuticle cream, as well as a hand cream to bring back the lost moisture, and to moisturize any dried out parts.
PS: You should wait for at least 2-3 days before you apply any product on top. Let your nails rest, breathe, and rejuvenate on their own before you cover them in any other nail polish, gel polish, or acrylics. If you must apply something, just use clear polish to bring some shine to the nail!
