After having artificial nails applied, you need to know how to get nail glue off your skin with using overly abrasive materials or methods. A licensed aesthetician shows you the proper technique in this free video on skin care.
Hi, this is Angie Warner for Pro Beauty at Pro Pilates in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and today I'm going to show you how to remove nail glue off of your skin. Oftentimes, when you go to the nail salon and have artificial nails done or you're doing them yourself at home, you're using glue that often can get on the outside of that area and it doesn't look very nice. So, you want to remove this nail glue from your skin by using some acetone which can be applied onto a cotton pad or a Q-tip and if this is not suitable for you or if you have an open cut in that area, you may just want to use some warm water with some anti bacterial soap and I sometimes just even use a little toothbrush to scrub that area away and not be too abrasive to the skin. So, now I'm actually going to show you how to do that by putting some acetone or nail polish remover and apply it directly on to the skin. So now I'm just applying some acetone on to my cotton pad. This is probably plenty enough and what we want to do is we want to apply it on to my client's skin where she has some nail glue residue. And here she has some on her index finger. I'm going to apply and press it and just finesse it around. You don't need to be aggressive until the glue breaks down on her skin. And that was pretty easy. But if it is a bit more tough and it's had time to really dry, you may want to use a toothbrush. So, now I'm going to show you how to use a toothbrush, usually a clean one, not the one you're going to brush your teeth with later, and just gently buff that area in light, circular motion. And so if you've ever been to the salon or you're trying to do your nails at home by yourself, and you get a little nail glue on your skin, just remember you probably have some acetone and a cotton pad nearby in which you can apply on to the skin to help break down that unsightly glue outside of your nail bed.
