If you’re like most people, you love wearing nail polish. But if you’ve ever tried to remove it from your cuticles, you know it’s not easy. Here are three tips to help remove nail polish from cuticles easily:
1. Apply a cuticle oil or balm. This will soften the skin and make it easier to remove the polish.
2. Use a nail polish remover that is specifically designed for cuticles. These cleaners work better than regular nail polish removers because they are specifically formulated to remove nail polish without harsh chemicals.
3. Use a cotton ball to apply pressure to the nail polish. This will help to remove the polish from the cuticle
How To Remove Nail Polish From Your Cuticles Or Around The Nails! 5 WAYS
Prepare your tools.
- A nail file
- A cotton ball
- A glass or plastic surface
1. Clean the affected nails with a nail file.
- Put a few drops of acetone on the cotton ball and hold it over the nails.
- Apply pressure to the cotton ball with your finger tips, and then wipe the acetone off the nails.
- Rub the nails with a glass or plastic surface until all the polish is removed.
Soak your nails.
First, soak your nails in warm water for a few minutes. This will help to soften the polish and make it easier to remove.
Next, use a cuticle pusher to gently push the polish off the nails. Be sure to hold the pusher so that it doesn’t dig into the skin.
Finally, use a nail polish remover to remove the polish. Be sure to wait until the remover has completely dried before touching your nails.
Use a cuticle pusher.
1. Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly or vaseline to the fingertip.
- Push the cuticle pusher firmly against the nail, in a back-and-forth motion.
- Repeat until the polish is off.
- Rinse the fingertip with water and dry it off.
Scrape off the polish.
With a cotton ball or pad, scrape off the polish from the nail. Use a gentle scraping motion, making sure to go around the entire nail. Be careful not to cut yourself!
Clean up your nails.
- Remove any old polish with a remover or brush.
- Cuticles: Cut off the tip of the nail and use a clean, sharp nail file to remove any hardened polish. Be gentle, as you may damage the nail bed.
- Base of nail: With a clean, sharp nail file, remove any rough edges or bumps on the base of the nail.
- Gel polish: If your gel polish has a removal agent, follow the instructions on the label. Otherwise, use acetone or isopropyl alcohol to remove gel polish from cuticles.
- Top of nail: Use a clean, sharp nail file to remove any polish from the top of the nail.
- File nails
After you’ve clean up your nails, you’ll need to file them. Use a wide, flat file to smooth out any rough edges. Be sure to take care not to file too much off, or you’ll end up with nails that are too thin and easily breaking.
If you are having trouble removing nail polish from your cuticles, try using a cuticle pusher or nail file.
