The reason I open up slots specifically for return soak-off is that most removal services out there HARM YOUR NAILS.
You should NEVER:
- peel/yank off your extensions at home. You will end up peeling off a layer of your natural nails together with the enhancement. This is why a lot of people experience thinning/weakening.
- accept a file off/drill off. Any removal service that relies completely on physical filing is brutal. It will make your nails thinner. Chemical treatment is necessary.
In a proper soak off, the electric drill or hand file is only used to de-bulk the extensions. It does not go onto your natural nails at all. The last layer of acrylics (that remains after file-down) is soaked with acetone until it has disintegrated chemically, and gently rubbed off using a stick.
If you are getting removal elsewhere, make sure your provider follow these guidelines. Don't be shy. You paid for it.
Acrylics don't harm your nails. Bad practices do.
Note: This service is only open to existing clients who's wearing my work at the moment and need a soak off. Removal of my work is free if you are doing a new set right after.
