How to Get Nail Glue Off Nails

In Earrings on September 14, 2011 at 9:01 am

False nails can be messy when they are applied at home. It is not always possible to apply or remove them without getting nail glue on your nails or leaving nail glue residue on your nails. The same methods used for removing false nails can also be used for removing excess glue from your nails.

1. Fill a small bowl half full of water and warm it in the microwave for one minute. If it is too hot, let it stand to cool off. You want the water to be as warm as you can comfortably stand it. The warmer the water the better it will be at loosening the nail glue.

2. Soak the nails of one of your hands in the warm water. After several minutes, test the glue by gently pushing at it with the tip of your nail file. Do not force it; you don’t want to damage your natural nails.

3. Fill another small bowl with acetone nail polish remover. Soak the nails of the hand you previously soaked in water in the nail polish remover. After a few minutes, check the glue and see if it is loose. Do not force the glue. If the glue does not come up easily, repeat the process until the glue begins to loosen.

4. Use a nail file or buffer to scrape off remaining glue. It should be slightly gummy and scrape off easily. Do not press hard; it is better to have a few small bits of glue remaining than to damage your nails.

5. Repeat the process on the nails of your other hand. Your nails will be rough at first but this should get better after a few days.
