However, the difference in application and strength also result in a tougher removal. Normally, dip nails need to be professionally removed in a salon. Or if you’re a nail pro, you can use an electric file to remove them at home without ruining your natural nails. But rest assured, dip nails are actually easier to remove than other nail enhancements such as acrylic powder or poly gel.
If you can’t go to salon to get them removed and you don’t want to use electric files, here are the tools you need to prepare before removing them: nail clippers, a double-sided file with two grits (100/180), a nail buffer, acetone nail polish remover, a cuticle pusher and a bowl that your hands can fit in. Now before the removal, you may wanna find a place near the window because the smell of acetone can be a lil bit strong.
