I know my posts have been heavy on the nail content but I promise I have some non-nail related posts coming soon.
This post is brought to you by the fact that I’m too cheap to go get my shellac taken off by the professionals, so here is how I do it at home!
You will need:
Cotton balls or pads
Acetone based nail polish remover
A cuticle pusher (metal works best)
Some cuticle oil and repairing nail polish
Step 1. Cut your cotton pads or ball so it fits on your nail. Also take this time to cut your tinfoil into small squares
Step 4. Wait 10 minutes or until polish starts to peel away from your nail.
Step 6. Wash your hands to remove any flakes of polish, then apply a moisturizing cuticle oil. The acetone is very drying, your nails will need some hydration. I like this one by Nicole O.P.I (I can’t find it online but I got it at Walmart) because it has a brush on the end so you can apply the oil all over your nail.
