How to remove your nail enhancements at home

Hello friends!

I’m Ami, co-founder of CURES BEAUTE! Thank you for purchasing our Mani-CURE Essential or Removal Essentials Kit! I hope you love it and it will bring you value even after this quarantine. If you didn’t purchase a kit, I’m happy you trust our expertise to assist you in this process!

I designed these kits to remove all types of nail enhancements, repair and strengthen your nails while treating your cuticles. I always get clients that want to give their nails a “break” but giving your nails a break without properly treating them will not lead to naturally strong, healthy and beautiful nails. I made a video below to answer any FAQ about the kits, please take a watch so we can all be on the same page:

 

Alright, let’s get started!

I recommend cutting your nails short during this time because bacteria can get trapped underneath the nails. Also, it is an optimal time to cut the nails down short so while you’re treating the nails, the new nail growth will be stronger and prevent premature chipping and breaking. If you do not have a nail clipper, you can file them down first before taking off the product – it will save you a lot of time!

 

HOW TO REMOVE GEL NAILS

Gel, also known as BIO GEL, UV GEL, HARD GEL, cannot be soaked in acetone and needs to be filed off completely. You will not need the tray included in the kit but I highly recommend to put warm olive oil into the finger tray and let your nails and cuticle soak for 15 minutes for a deep conditioning treatment then follow-up with the treatment products (if you purchased the Mani-CURES Essential Kit)

 

HOW TO REPAIR & TREAT NAILS

After any enhancement is removed, it is normal for nails to be brittle and weak. If you purchased the Mani-CURE Essential Kit, you will have a range of treatment products to aid the nail’s recovery to naturally beautiful, strong and healthy nails.

HOW TO REMOVE DIP POWDER, ACRYLIC, GEL POLISH (SHELLAC) & APRES GEL-X

All of the products above can be soaked and dissolved in acetone. Soaking time varies based on nail enhancements. Gel polish (shellac) should be soaked for 10 minutes. Dip powders and acrylics should be soaked for 20 minutes. The trick is to file off 90% of the product so the acetone soak can release the product off the nail bed! The video below is for gel polish but the same principles apply for all soak off. 

Note: Apologies as the filming turned out sideways, we’re working on fixing it!

HOW TO DISPOSE OF ACETONE

Please do not dump into water system! Soak the excess acetone with paper towel and dispose of in the garbage.
