  • Acetone, its with the regular nail polish remover section in most stores... make sure you DONT get the acetone free, that will remove any color, but not the nails. Or you could go back to where you had them done at... mostly places will take nails off for 5 to 10 dollars.

  • Sounds like that wasnt such a great salon you went to. I say try soaking them in ACETONE for a while and they will weaken and fall off. Next time try gel nails with the natural ingredients. They cost more but are less damaging.

  • If you don't want to go to the store and already have the ORIGINAL blue Dawn dish detergent, you are good to go. Yep, when I got my nails done for my wedding they told me not to use the original blue Dawn dish soap, as it would do the same thing as ACETONE nail polish remover. I thought it was kind of funny.

    You could also go to an amusement park with your husband and crack your fake nails off while screaming for your life on a ride you didn't want to be on in the first place but you went because he looked at you and smiled and that dimple popped into his cheek and you melted like an ice cream cone in the middle of the Mojave Desert... yeah, I am that easy with him. Even after 11 years.
