    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.

    How To Remove Dip Powder Nails | DipWell Nails

    To get started, you will need the following items:

    Acetone
    Course grit buffer or file (180/100 grit)
    Cuticle pusher
    Cotton
    Tin Foil

      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. For best results, we recommend using anything with 100% pure acetone.

              • If after the initial 15-20 minutes the nail product does not come off, soak nails for an extra five minutes.
