I have had my nails done since, well always. Right now we are tight on money and I can't go get them filled, they are starting to become painful cause some of them are pulling up. Whats the easiest way to remove them without nail polish remover since I don't have any

Can you afford to have them removed? I pay $7.00 to have mine removed at the salon. It's quick, usually painless and cheap.

That's where I usually get mine removed and then replaced. But the last of our money is going to gas :/

Get a bottle of pure acitone. A small bottle at Sally's is $3. Soak them off like at the nail salon. Take a nail file to them after.

At the dollar store they have 100% acetone it will remove them just soak for a few mins its about 1.50-2.00 for the bigger bottle.

Yet to soak them in water maybe I kinda just rip em off but it sometimes hurts

Sometimes I clip mine off. If you do any other way besides using acetone they won't be coming off real easy.

I usually just clip the tips off with a nail clipper and just file them down and repaint them so you really can't tell

I usually just clip the tips off with a nail clipper and just file them down and repaint them so you really can't tell and so your nails won't be so tender to warm or hot water to cause I hate that!
