How to Remove Glue From Artificial Nails

In Earrings on September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am

Some types of artificial nails cannot be used again after they have been removed, so there is no reason to remove the glue. But you can use press-on artificial nails over and over. After removing artificial press-on nails, there is likely to be glue residue on the bottom of the nail. Before you can use those nails again, you must clean the glue to ensure it will adhere to your natural nail.

1. Pour acetone nail-polish remover into a small glass bowl. The greater the acetone level, the better. You can purchase 100 percent acetone over the counter at a pharmacy.

2. Drop the artificial nails in the bowl.

3. Allow your nails to soak in the acetone for 10 to 15 minutes to dissolve the glue. Depending on the acetone level, you may have to soak your nails longer.

4. Use a cotton ball or Q-tip to gently wipe away any remaining residue from the glue.

5. Allow the artificial nails to completely dry before reusing them.
