How To Remove Shellac Nails at Home

We love getting pampered.  Especially when it comes to maintaining our nails with a beautiful shellac manicure.  They last for a long time and look amazing.  But when they start growing out – yikes!  If you don’t have time to go to the salon to get them removed, here’s a helpful video we put together on how to remove shellac nail polish safely in the comfort of your own home.


Steps on How to Remove Shellac At Home

  1. File the surface of the shellac nail and ensure all the colour is removed
  2. Saturate a cotton ball with acetone
  3. Apply the cotton ball onto the surface of your nail
  4. Cover and wrap your entire nail with aluminum foil
  5. Leave the foil on for 10 minutes
  6. Remove the foil and cotton ball.
  7. Buff down the surface of your nail to ensure it is smooth
  8. Apply a nail strengthener top coat.  You can also use nail oil or a moisturizing cream
  9. Allow your nails to breathe for a couple of weeks before your next manicure
