Removing the No Chip Manicure takes time and patience. We suggest you return to a professional nail tech for removal. However, removing your no chip manicure at home requires a visit to your nearest convenient store.
Supplies: You will need the following: cotton, aluminum foil, 100% aceotne (clear in color), oil, orangewood stick, and grit file.
***Please protect your furniture, especially hardwood surfuces from the acetone.
Please Pour the acetone into a GLASS bowl.
1st: It is VERY important to know which NCM product you are wearing for you may or maynot need the top layer lightly filed (to break the seal). Please refer to your nail tech for proper removal.
2nd: Take a peice of small cotton and dip it into the acetone
3rd place the small peice of soaked cotton and place it ontop of your NCM nails.
4th Wrap your fingers (w/the soaked cotton ontop) in the aluminum foil.
5th To speed up the process you can add a heated pad/mittens.
6th Be patient for at least 10-15 minutes (you may need help wrapping your fingers or wrap one hand at a time).
7th remove aluminum foil and check for lifting. Use the orangewood stick for removal. Rewrap if the gel is not easily removed or lifting. Apply the oil for stubborn spots. Rewrap if there is no lifting.
The key here is patience, 100% acetone, and more patience. Please return to the professionals if all else fails.
