Hi all! First things first, I just wanted to take a second to check in on you during this uneasy time. I hope you are all doing well & taking this time to reflect on yourself and your own personal improvements. Whether that be cleaning your home, taking a bubble bath at night, reading a book or doing your own nails. Whatever makes you happiest, I hope you are getting to do more of that during this time. For me, keeping busy with cooking, cleaning, nails, make up, skincare and using my blog and Instagram have been keeping me busy! While yes, we are stuck at home, we can try to make the best of it. I know my nails have grown out horribly and I know a lot of you are struggling to get your own dip / gel nails off that we’re professionally done at a salon. So I’m making this blog post to help you get them off without ruining your nails! I have made a blog post for shellac nails already so if you currently have shellac nails, hop on over here.
So step one: File the top of your dip until the top coat is off of your nails.
Step 2: Take a cotton ball and rip it in half, I bought these nail clips off amazon for super cheap. Cover the cotton ball in acetone and let soak on your dip powder for 8-10 minutes.
Step 3: After 8-10 minutes rub off any loose dip powder.
Step 4: repeat steps 1, 2 & 3. File again, let cotton ball soak off dip powder & rub off access
Step 5: Rub off remaining dip powder. This is what mine looked like when all the powder was off:
Be patient with this process so you don’t break off your natural nails.
