3 techniques to remove semi-permanent varnish
Although it stays in place longer than conventional varnish, semi-permanent varnish must be removed after a while. If you don’t know how to remove semi-permanent nail polish at home, the nail supply expert Maryton will show you 3 tips for removing it at home without damaging your nails.
Before you start: Preparing your nails and equipment
To remove your semi-permanent varnish, you will need a coarse file or a polisher. Indeed, before removing the semi-permanent varnish, you will have to prepare your nails for this operation. You can absolutely use an electric nail drill.
Gently rub your nails with the coarse file or polisher. This step eliminates the top coat layer of the varnish to then allow the acetone to dissolve the varnish. Once filed, apply a nail oil because acetone will attack your skin.
Technique of wrapper wrapping
This method consists of placing a cotton ball containing acetone on each nail and coating everything with aluminum for 15 minutes. Once the time has elapsed, you can remove the papillotes by sliding them. Naturally, there will be some polish left on your nails. This is where the cuticle pusher comes in. It will allow you to remove the remaining bits.
Nail bath technique
This method involves dipping your fingertips directly into a manicure bowl filled with acetone. After that, you must wait 15 minutes before using the cuticle pusher to remove the remaining semi-permanent polish.
Bonus Technique: Soak Nails Caps
This method is similar to the previous methods since it also requires acetone. Pour some nail polish remover into the Soak Nails and stick your fingers in it for 15 minutes. Be careful not to put too much at the risk of overflowing it when you insert your nails.
