Dip powder nails are a popular choice for those who want long-lasting and durable manicures. However, when it comes time to remove them.
1. Pure acetone 2. Cotton balls or lint-free pads 3. Aluminum foil 4. Nail file or buffer 5. Orangewood stick or cuticle pusher 6. Nail buffer 7. Moisturizer
Use a nail file or buffer to gently file down the top coat of your dip powder nails. This will help the acetone penetrate the powder and remove it more easily.
Pour a small amount of pure acetone into a bowl or small container. Soak your nails in the acetone for 10-15 minutes. The dip powder should start to soften and loosen.
After soaking your nails in acetone, wrap each nail in a piece of aluminum foil. This will help to keep the acetone from evaporating.
Remove the aluminum foil from your nails. Use an orangewood stick or cuticle pusher to gently scrape away the softened dip powder.
After removing the dip powder, buff your nails with a nail buffer to smooth out any rough edges.
