How to Remove Fingernail Glue


Nail glue is used to bond acrylic nails and strengthen natural fingernails. It can be a very strong adhesive that lasts for weeks, leaving behind residue even after artificial nails have been removed. Cleaning the glue from your fingernails can be a simple process as long as the appropriate procedure is employed.

Things You'll Need

  • Nail file
  • Cotton balls
  • Acetone
  • Use a soft nail file to gently file away the nail glue. This will reduce the larger portions of the glue that have dried on your nail bed.

  • Soak each hand in warm, soapy water for three to five minutes. It will soften the glue and facilitate removal.

  • Rub and peel off any loose pieces of glue that have already lifted from your fingernails. Remove as much of it as you can before applying any chemical solutions.

  • Apply acetone to a cotton ball or pad. Dab it over the each fingernail and wipe away the glue once the acetone has begun to remove it.
