  • Start with the Top Layer:

While you're working on removing the fits layer, you'll see it turn into powder slowly. Go through the same process on each nail and make the top layer turn into powder effectively.

Since regular nail polish remover won't do this task well, you shouldn't be wasting your time and effort on it and simply get acetone in the first place. Moreover, while purchasing the acetone, make sure it's 100% pure acetone to remove the powder effectively. 

Once you have the right acetone, use a cotton ball for soaking it in acetone, and then place it on each nail. Right after you place the cotton ball, you need to wrap it with aluminum foil for at least 15 minutes. Do this step on each of the nails (you can try at one time and cover each nail to save your time). 

  • Time to Remove the Foil:

After the mentioned time of 15 minutes, when you feel like the acetone has properly spread and soaked by your nails, you can remove the foil. If there is any extra powder, you can wipe it off with the cotton ball while removing it. Yet, if the powder is still in great quantity, it's better to keep the foil on for additional 5-10 minutes.

  • Moisturizing Time:

After the entire dip powder is removed from each nail, you will see how each nail would be extremely dried out due to the powder. Hence, it's better to moisturize each nail in the end and nourish your fingers + nail beds with cuticle oil.
