5 tips to remove nail extensions at home



Nail extensions come in a variety of types, such as acrylic, gel, and dip powder, each with their own unique benefits and drawbacks.

Before getting nail extensions, it is important to choose a reputable salon and technician who has experience with the type of extensions you want.

It is also important to keep in mind that nail extensions require regular maintenance and may need to be filled in or replaced every few weeks.

Removing extensions at home can be bit of hassle. Follow the below steps and do this with ease.

1. File the topcoat: Use a nail file to gently file off the topcoat of the nail extensions. Be careful not to file too much or too hard as this can damage your natural nails.

2. Soak your nails: Prepare a bowl of warm water and add a few drops of dish soap. Soak your nails in the solution for about 10 to 15 minutes to soften the nail extensions.

3. Gently push back the cuticles: Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticles around your nails. This will help to loosen the nail extensions

4. Remove the nail extensions: Use a wooden stick or the edge of a cuticle pusher to gently lift and pry off the nail extensions. Be very gentle and patient to avoid damaging your natural nails.

5. Buff and moisturize your nails: Once all the nail extensions are removed, use a nail buffer to gently buff your nails to remove any remaining residue. Finally, apply a moisturizing cuticle oil or cream to keep your nails healthy and hydrated.
