How-To *safely* Remove Dipping
So you've lasted 3-4 weeks with perfect dip powder nails and want a change of color. Sure, we got you! Our DipWell team likes to color hop on the regular too so here are a few easy steps to *safely* remove DipWell nail powder. Don't worry, you won't cringe at the sound of a hand drill - this isn't the dental office.
To get started, you will need the following items:Acetone
Course grit buffer or file (180/100 grit)
We call this the *Super Safe* Foil-wrap Soak-off Method.
Step 1: Buff the top layer of each nail with a coarse nail file evenly and thoroughly.- Buff until there is a thin layer of product left over on the nail.
- Be mindful not to over-buff to the natural nail.
Step 2: Prepare aluminum foil squares big enough to wrap each nail with a cotton ball.
Step 3: Soak cotton balls in pure acetone or nail remover alternatives.
Step 4: Place soaked cotton ball on each nail and secure in place by wrapping aluminum foil around the nails.
Step 5: Without disrupting the foil wrap, wait 15-20 minutes for nails to soak.
Step 6: In a twisting motion, gently remove foil wraps.
Gently apply pressure & twist foil wrap to remove the product from the nail surface.
Gently apply pressure and pull foil wrap to remove the product from the nail surface.
Step 7: Gently use a file or cuticle pusher to remove additional residue.
If after the initial 15-20 minutes the nail product does not come off, soak nails for an extra five minutes.
Voila! Now you're ready for a new set of DipWell nails. And we know, 2-4 weeks is a long time since your last dip powder application. It's ok *we can hardly remember what we had for breakfast this morning* - In case you forgot how to apply DipWell Nails, click here for a friendly reminder!
