How to Remove Your Press-ons

You can remove nails permanently by clipping, filing, & soaking in acetone.  **your custom claws will NOT BE REUSABLE USING THIS METHOD. 

Removing & Reusing your Claws

Be patient and gentle when removing your claws so you can protect your natural nails, and preserve your enhancement claws! 

It’s not recommended to attempt removing newly glued nails or nails glued with resin, acrylic, or gel. To remove nails, soak hands in warm water solution of soap and natural oil.  Soak for a good 10-15 mins. Using the included nail removal tool, slide the pointy flat side around the edges of your nails, gently lifting the edges. Then,  with to the floss side of your tool, slowly slide the floss between your natural nail and your claws. NEVER PULL OR RIP your claws OFF. If you experience discomfort stop immediately and try soaking your hands longer, before trying again. It is important that you never force a nail off, as this can damage your natural nails/nail plate. 
Once your claws are removed, put them back on the included adhesive strip, and tuck them back into the Queen Custom Claws box for later reuse! Collect and expand your nail wardrobe!
