Never pull out your nails

If only one thing should be avoided, it is to tear off the semi-permanent varnish or your nails yourself.  Indeed, by tearing off your false nails, you also remove the very thin first layers of the nails. As a result, your nails can no longer be smooth. On the other hand, they will become more fragile, brittle and rough. If you apply varnish afterwards, it may flake more quickly than usual and will be less uniform.

Remove resin or gel from nails at home

To remove the gel on the nails, you will need to arm yourself with patience and some manicure sets. You must have in your possession a pair of scissors or a nail clipper, one or more nail files, a wooden stick and a nourishing cuticle oil or other vegetable oil. If your nails are resin, you need cotton balls, nail polish remover with acetone and aluminum foil. Indeed, the nail polish remover has no effect on the nail gel. To remove it, first cut your fingernails as short as possible. Then you need to file the entire surface of the fake nails patiently.

If you wear resin false nails, then you can soak them in a melting solution or in a nail polish remover containing acetone. Two methods are available to you. Either you soak them in the liquid directly, or you soak cotton balls in the product. Then you put a cotton ball on each nail, surrounded by aluminum foil. In about 15 minutes, the resin melts and peels off. Then you have to do some finishing work. When the gel is completely removed, consider applying a nourishing oil to the cuticles and a cream to the nails.
