How To Remove Dip Nails At Home

Hi All!
If you're like me, then you are currently on lockdown in your home due to this fast-spreading virus. As a teacher, I am now remote teaching from home. Kye is also able to work from home which is great. We are only leaving our house for groceries. I encourage you all to do the same and practice social distancing. 
Everything was going fine with being at home until I cracked my dip nail, and then I realized uh-oh the nail salon is closed and I need to get this stuff off! The good news is that I figured out how to remove it at home quickly and without ruining my nails. I'm linking all the supplies I used below so you won't even have to leave your house!

Supplies //

Step 1//
The first thing I did was take the top layer of clear coat off of my nails. I used the nail drill with one of the red sanding heads and lightly removed that layer. DO NOT push down hard on the drill head- it will hurt badly, and you don't want to be grinding down your actual nail. All we are trying to do is remove that top layer.  

Step 2//
 Next, I used the buffing block to make sure the entire top coat was removed. It's tricky to get the edges of your nails using the nail drill so this is where the buffing block comes in handy. 

Step 3//
At this point, your nails are ready! Grab a bowl and put a bit of acetone in it (enough to cover your fingertips). Soak your nails for 10 ish minutes. The most important thing is that you use acetone polish remover. If it does not have acetone it will not work. 

Step 4// 
Using a cotton ball, gently scrub off the remaining dip polish. If it is not coming off, let your nails soak a bit longer.

Step 5 // 
Wash your hands and file/shape your nails. 
All done! I just put a basic polish on my nails for the time being.

Stay Home & Healthy!
