Generally, fiberglass nails last long for two weeks. After or within two weeks you can’t carry the fiberglass nails because they must have broken or stained. Removing fiberglass nails at home is easy but utmost care must take to protect the natural nail and skin around nails.
If you can remove it easily at home with some common products, then why go and pay extra money to a manicurist? Careful steps will provide a healthy nail bed as before using fiberglass.
A little bit of torpidity can harm the natural nail and can cause nail separation from the nail bed.

Following Steps of How to Remove Fiberglass Nails
You just need nail polish remover or acetone, a small bowl or glass, and some cotton balls. These ingredients are not too rare and most of the time we all have these ingredients at our home.
So it is not only easy but also inexpensive. In this article, you will be able to know about the careful steps of how to remove fiberglass nails. Let’s get started at….
Remove nail polish from the nail
First of all, if you have any nail polish on your fiberglass nails, remove it with nail polish remover gently. Because you have to dip your nails on a bowl full of nail polish remover. Dipping nails with nail polish can turn the skin of fingers into a disgusting color that you must dislike.
Dip your nails into a bowl of nail polish remover
Take a little glass or bowl that should be made of glass because we are going to pour pure acetone into the bowl so if you use plastic that can melt.
Pour some nail polish remover or pure acetone into the bowl so that you can dip your nails completely. Dip your nails into the acetone bowl for up to 3 minutes. Pull them out and wipe the nails with cotton balls. The fiberglass should be dispelled.
Yet the entire fiberglass extensions don’t melt, keep repeating the procedures two/three times. Remember that don’t dip your fingers into the acetone bowl for more than three minutes each time that can cause serious damages to the skin.
You can choose another way to avoid damages of skin or nails. Dip into a bowl of cotton ball soaked with acetone or tie a cotton ball soaked by acetone around your nail. It can take more time than dip into a bowl of acetone.
Buff the nail with a file and buffer
Buff the whole surface of the nail to get a smooth nail bed, but don’t buff too much. Enormous buffing can thin the natural nail bed and resist the normal growth of the nail.
Then use a file whatever you have. Gently file the only tip of the nail to reshape it. Wash your hand with soap and warm water and dry up with a towel or napkin.
Use a moisturizer
The final step of this procedure is to moisturize. Apply some kind of moisturizer like cuticle oil on the nail bed. It will hydrate the nails and the skin around the nails.
