@OrchidsandCandles: Yep, soak ’em.  It’ll take a while, so set yourself down with a good movie and be patient–I think picking at them wrecked my real nails more than anything.

@OrchidsandCandles:  Goodness…I really don’t remember.  Like I said, I about bad about picking/prying off too soon.  Maybe 10-20 minutes?  I’m not sure I used straight acetone, though, either.

hey ladies! The ease of removal depends on the brand you have.. i’ve used some brand that was kind of a nightmare to take off, and then i used Shellac by OPI and it was a DREAM to take off. with Shellac i just soaked for less than 6 mins, and scraped the paint right off. it really was simple. but you  just need shellac. Actually , i use aceton to remove the bonds from my hair extensions too 😀

@OrchidsandCandles: hahaha Its okay. Yesterday I ordered one of my christmas presents (calendar a lady makes) and i sent her the price of the shipping, but not for the calendar. It was pretty bad.. I spent all day sleeping today, and now I’ll be up all night. 

Good luck with the nails and yes, it’ll be fine to paint right away.

Your only safe choices are to soak them in pure acetone at home or go to the salon and have them removed. It isn’t a good idea to remove them any other way since you can seriously damage your nailbeds underneath if you do.
