What you'll need:
- Cotton Rounds
- 100% Acetone
- Tin Foil
- Hand Moisturizer and/or Cuticle Oil
Tip: Cut tin foil into squares (large enough to wrap around the tip of your finger) before you start so you'll have everything ready.
Here we have a nice festive red glitter nail look I wore around Christmas
Take a cotton round and drench it in 100% Acetone.
Tip: You can cut the cotton round into quarters to use less. Just make sure the piece you cut covers your entire nail.
Place the cotton round on your finger nail as shown.
Next, take the tin foil and wrap it around your finger on top of the cotton around. Squeeze it together so it stays.
After you're done, you're hand should look like this. Scary, hey? :)
Leave on your fingers for 5 minutes! No more, no less!
Press gently press on your nail and slowly remove the cotton & tin foil from your finger in a swiping motion (as if you were removing regular nail polish) and it should come off like this.
Tip: Still nail polish around the corners? Don't fret! Just take the same cotton round you used on your finger and swipe it around your nail to remove any access nail polish. The cotton round should still be damp from before but if not just use a little more acetone.
You should have a clean nail as shown here
Repeat steps for each nail and complete the same steps on your other hand. You should have clean nail polish free fingernails like these...
100% Acetone is VERY drying to your cuticles and fingertips so make sure you moisturize and let your hands dry before reapplying a new nail polish. I also use a cuticle oil to give my cuticles a little extra moisture.
I hope this is useful for you guys. If you have any questions, please let me know :)
