A quick question for anyone has removed SNS off thier nails at home. What did you use? I read that distilled vinegar could be used, as anyone tried that before?

I soaked cotton buds in nail polish remover, put them on my nails then covered over with alfoil then left for ten minutes or so

I chewed mine off. Kinda bit down on my nail bed several times so as to crack it up so it would come off in little pieces if that makes sense. I didn't care about my nails though and was prepared for damage. Surprisingly they weren't too bad but I like to keep mine ultra short (as we all should be doing right now).

A combination of nail polish with acetone wrapped with tin foil, then use nail clipper plier type to pry and cut. Both of these methods I have had done by my nail salon to remove my acrylics. Then trim your nails very short once removed. You can use a nail buffer to smooth and file off any resdue

You should soak them off with pure acetone. Google the soak off removal method.

Get some Acetone or nail polish WITH acetone. Its what they use in the salon.
Soak a cotton ball/wool and wrap your fingers with foil.
It will slowly peel off. Use cheap nail files though as you will destroy them. Also look at a tool that you can use to scrape the acrylic off, something like  pallet knife works.

Takes about 1hr to do :)

You can get pure acetone from bunnings.

A tip I find helps is if you use a nail file just to rough up the polish before you do the cotton/foil method. It will help the acetone soak in and work faster.

If you can tolerate it, letting them grow out for 2-3 weeks makes them super easy to peel off. You have to be gentle and careful though.
