When you are ready to remove acrylic nails then you need to do it in the most efficent way possible so that it doesn't hurt you or damage your real nail. When you are ready to remove the nails, cip them as short as possiblrand then take the pointy end of tweezers and pry up the edge a bit. Once these two steps are done pour some acetone free nail polish remover in a bowl and soak the acrylic nails for 30 to 40 minutes.
Once it feels like the nails are loosened enough, pull them off gently with the tweezers. If it seems like it is still going to be difficult to remove the nails, then consider soaking them a bit longer until they feel like they are ready to come off.
