Coming to this rather tedious and long procedure, you should have enough free time, all the necessary materials and special tools. The procedure for removing nails extensions depends on the type of your artificial nails. Determine exactly what nails you have to take: from acrylic or from gel. The beginning of removal of such nails in both cases is the same. With the help of tweezers from the manicure set, gently bite off the edge of the nail, which is free. You should do this very carefully, otherwise you can damage your own nail along with the nail. Sharp edges of artificial nails can injure your fingers. After the free edges of the nail extensions are removed on all the fingers, you can begin the procedure of removing them from the natural nail plate.

Removal of nails from acrylic
If you have nails made of acrylic, then you will needliquid, designed to remove nails from acrylic, AcrilikRemover. For lack of such it is possible to use and a liquid for removal of a varnish. Just look closely at the label, since only a liquid that has acetone is suitable. If the liquid for removing varnish does not contain acetone, then you will not get the desired result. Acquire a solution for removing acrylic nails in special stores, so you avoid fakes. It is advisable that the liquid be released by that manufacturer who has released and material for your artificial nails, which are intended to be removed. Next, you need to prepare pieces of aluminum foil rectangular shape and size 12x7 millimeters. There must be ten such pieces. Small pieces of cloth are also needed, cotton pads are also suitable. Cut the discs into two or four pieces, so that they completely cover the nails. If you have not previously removed the free edge of the nail, it can be removed using a boat - a tool that looks like a small guillotine. This tool is used by the wizards to shorten the length of tips. You can try this with scissors or nippers designed for nails. Do not use nippers to remove the skin - you will spoil them. Before removing the raised nails at home, provide eye protection, since sharp edges of acrylic can injure them. Saw a free edge of the acrylic nail is not worth it, because by the force of the file you can injure your own nail. Some try to tear off acrylic from a natural nail, making an effort. You can not do this in any case. After all, the master before the nail extensions specially treated it to strengthen the adhesion to acrylic. When you are using the cutter to remove the free edge of the nail, then with a rough nail file, remove the finishing gel - the outer coating of the acrylic nail, which gives it a shine. Before you remove the raised nails, the finishing layer must be cut very carefully. This task is not easy, since the file initially just slides on it, not clinging. This coating can only be removed with an abrasive, it does not dissolve in liquids. And under the sections with the finish gel acrylic just does not soften. So, you have removed the finish layer. Now, moistening the pieces of cotton pads in the liquid, apply them to the acrylic nails. To prevent the liquid from evaporating, cover your nails with pieces of aluminum foil. You need to leave the edge to wrap it like a wrapper. The foil should be snug against the finger so that air does not get inside. After you have covered all the nails in this way, note the time. It takes 35-40 minutes to completely soften the nail material. During this time, acrylic becomes like a jelly and is well removed by any sharp tool made of plastic or metal, without damaging the living nail. You need to try to do this as quickly as possible, otherwise the softened acrylic will start to solidify again. Remains of acrylic are removed with fleece or a swab that are moistened in a liquid to soften acrylic. After you have removed the remnants of the acrylic layer, be sure to wash your hands with soap and then lubricate them with a cream. On the process of removing the nails, you spend from one and a half to two hours, if you do not take into account the purchase of a special liquid in the store.
