    Normal nail varish remover melts the acrylic and the false nail away but it can be messy. I'm not sure if you should do this yourself but good luck in whatever you attempt to do

    You need something like an ice cream tub (big enough to put your hand in) and fill it about 4cm depth with nail varnish remover. Leave your fingertips dangling in the liquid for around 5-15 minutes (until acrylics start to go soft) and the solvent will dissolve the glue so you'll be able to peel them off.

    I got this stuff from Superdrug which said it would get them off in 15 mins but actually took 2 hours!! Don't know what I was doing wrong....afterwards I realised I should've waited until the next day because I had a lab and we wash all our equipment with acetone, which would've melted them right off..:rolleyes:
    Maybe you'll just have to stick with the soaking though...the thought of getting them off again has put me off having them done recently!
