If you have acrylic nails, you'll need to make sure that you use a non-acetone polish remover.

I don't know if the Quick Removal Process (shown on the instructions) would work for artificial nails. I'd recommend the Gentle Removal Process.

I saw this on youtube plus a few extra tips. If you have the nail heater: Pour a small amount of olive oil in a small dish, dip a nail into the oil, (or apply oil on your nail with a Q tip) keeping your hand near the heater, follow the gentle peel off instructions. Acrylics love oil and you should be appling oil to them at least once a day. The oil will keep your cuticles soft and your acrylics flexible. When you want to reapply a set of wraps, be sure to remove all the oil from your acrylics (natural nails too). The best way to completely remove oils from your nails is to scrub your nails with anit-bacterical soap and a nail brush (toothbrush works too) then after nails are completely dry, wipe with alcohol. If your not going to reapply right away, rub oil into your nails and skin and enjoy all that hydration.
