How do I remove my nails? 

To remove your nails, simply soak your nails in warm water for 5 minutes. They should become loose enough for you to gently lift the false nail from your natural nail bed. If after 5 minutes the false nail if not yet loose enough to gently remove, soak for a further 5 minutes or until they become loose. Please avoid forcefully removing the false nail without loosening it first.
