STEP 1 - PREP

- As all dip nail lovers certainly know, one of the biggest advantages to having dip nails is their durability.

- They are strong but this also results in them taking some time to remove.

- The perfect time to remove them is when there is some noticeable nail growth.


STEP 2 - FILE

- Begin the removal process by using a coarse 150 grit hand file.

- The goal is to remove the entire top layer of your dip. 

- This will allow the acetone to penetrate the product much faster.


STEP 3 - HEAT UP RICE

- Add a cup of dry uncooked rice in a small bowl and microwave it for up to 30-60 seconds.

- Monitor your rice while it is being heated up to avoid any hazard.

  • PRO TIP: s a precaution, you can heat the rice in increments of 30 seconds at a time. Rice should be very warm but NOT hot. 


STEP 4 - ADD ACETONE

- Place a paper towel, cotton pad or dryer sheet in the zip lock bag and add just enough acetone to soak it up.

- Use 100% acetone for best results. 

- Optionally add a few drops of Rossi Nourish Cuticle Oil.


STEP 5 - ADD CUTICLE OIL

- Coat your fingers with cuticle oil or Vaseline. 

- This prevents residue from sticking to your skin and keeps cuticles from drying out. 


STEP 6 - RUB YOUR NAILS

- Put your hand inside the bowl and rub your fingernails against the soaked paper towel from time to time. 

- The heat of the rice will react with the acetone and speed up the removal process.


STEP 7 - CHECK NAILS

- Check on the nails from time to time to see the progress if the product is dissolved. 

- Thanks to the cuticle oil nails and skin won't be too dried from the acetone. 

- If your rice gets too cool, just reheat it and continue.


STEP 8 - FINISH OFF

- After 5-10 minutes the entire dip should be removed.


STEP 9 - READY FOR NEXT MANI

- Finish by washing your hands and applying Nourish Cuticle Oil.

- We recommend you to use it 3-4 a week to keep your cuticles and nails hydrated!
