The best way to remove your dip powder nails is to head back into the salon. The process is a bit involved, and a nail technician will get the best results without damaging your natural nail. The method is similar to gel polish removal. First, the top coat and some of the color is filed down with a file or an electric nail file. Then, the nails are soaked in 100% acetone to dissolve the remaining color. You can do this by soaking a cotton ball in acetone, placing it on your nail, and wrapping your finger in foil. You’ll need to let it sit for at least 10 minutes. By then, the color should be gone entirely, ready to start over. Just remember that acetone can be very dehydrating, so treat your fingers to some extra love with good cuticle oil. Even the prettiest of nails won’t look nice on lizard hands.
