Two weeks ago, I had a Shellac manicure.  It’s amazing:  dries instantly, super shiny, and lasts a long time. 

TOO long, in fact.

I can’t get it off!  It doesn’t come off with nail polish remover (or else I’m not putting enough elbow grease into it) so I’ve just pulled it off.  My nails are peeling and gross now. 

What to do?  I thought this was my solution to manicures!

  1. Wow! I’m sorry this happened. I haven’t had this problem with my shellack.

    If worse comes to worse there is an eco friendly citrus remover that should take it off. You can buy it at home depot.

  2. You have to go back to the salon and soak your
    fingers in pure acetone to get it off! Sometimes
    they wrap your fingertips in acetone soaked cotton and cover with tin foil.
