Powder nails are a type of nail polish that is made up of tiny, finely ground particles. Powder nails are often more affordable than other types of nail polish, but they sometimes come with a higher chance of causing allergic reactions. There are a few ways to remove powder nails without any damage.
Supplies You’ll Need
– powder (optional- if you have a dark color nail polish you can omit this step)
– cotton balls
– a bowl of warm water
– a bowl of hydrogen peroxide
– a file
– a remover cloth
– a light
– a mirror
If you have a powder nail polish, you can skip this step.
Apply a light coat of your desired nail color to your nails.
Pour a small amount of powder onto a cotton ball and shake it to distribute the powder evenly.
Apply the powder to the tips of your nails using a light brush.
Hold the powder nails up to the light and check to see if any streaks or spots show up. If so, gently remove them with a file or remover cloth.
Repeat steps four and five until all of the powder nails have been applied and checked.
Pour a bowl of warm water into the bowl of hydrogen peroxide and place the powder nails into the solution.
Allow the powder nails to soak for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, remove the powder nails from the hydrogen peroxide solution and place them into the bowl of clean water.

Aftercare for Your Nails
When it comes to removing powder nails, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, be sure to use a remover that is specifically formulated for powder nails. Many removers work well on both nail polish and powder, but some are better suited for one type of polish over the other.
Secondly, be sure to apply a thick coat of remover to your nails before starting. This will help to loosen up the powder and make it easier to remove.
Finally, be Patient! Powder nails can take a bit longer to remove than normal nails, but with a little patience and a good remover, they will be gone in no time.
