Do you have a pedicure that you aren’t loving anymore? Whether it’s an old manicure or just one that isn’t looking as good as it did when you first got it, there are a few ways to strip and revitalize your nails.
If your manicure is really old and you can see signs of wear, the best way to get back to a look you like is to start over with a manicure. For this, you’ll need nail polish remover, cotton balls or pads, and nail clippers.
1. First, clip your nails so they’re all the same length and then file them into shape. Then remove any remaining polish, which will make applying new polish easier. Then soak your hands in warm water in order to soften the cuticles.
2. Push back the cuticles around each nail and trim away any excess skin. Dry your hands completely before applying moisturizer to the cuticles and rubbing it in gently. Do not skip this part: healthy cuticles mean healthy nails! Wipe off any excess moisturizer with a clean towel so it doesn’t interfere with the next step.
3. To begin painting your nails, use a base coat to protect them from discoloration from the nail polish.
Hey, beauties! Today I’m sharing how to strip and revitalize your nails! Sometimes you might get a pedicure that doesn’t turn out how you’d like. Maybe the color is too dark, or maybe you just want a new look. Either way, this quick video will show you how to remove it safely at home and give yourself a fresh start!
Step 1: Remove all of your nail polish using regular nail polish remover. This will take several cotton balls, so make sure you have enough on hand before you begin.
Step 2: Once all your nail polish is off, soak your nails for about five minutes in water with some liquid soap added.
Step 3: Scrub each nail with a toothbrush dipped in hydrogen peroxide (or plain white vinegar if you prefer). The scrubbing action will help loosen and remove any stubborn polish still left on your nails.
Step 4: Finish with a good moisturizer because stripping can be drying to the cuticles and skin around the nails. Also, gently push back your cuticles and trim them with manicure scissors or clippers if needed. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, ask for help from a professional at your local salon
If you are one of the many women who have fallen in love with the new pedicure-manicure trend of dark black and red, you may want to know that there is a way to get back your normal-looking nails. When you are going for a darker tone, it can be hard to get back to your natural color. If you want to strip your nails and get back to your normal look, there are three ways that you can do this.
1. Apply a thick layer of nail polish remover onto your nails and let it sit for about twenty minutes. Once the time is up, use a cotton ball to gently remove the old polish off of your nails.
2. Use a nail file or buffer to sand away at the top layer of your nails. This will remove any old polish and give them a nice smooth look. You will also remove any old gel that may be on your nails as well. After buffing, apply a coat of base coat to help keep them looking great.
3. The final step is to use a product called Nail Polish Remover Strips. These strips are designed specifically for use on manicures and pedicures that have darker colors in them. They contain ingredients like glycolic acid

1. Start with Nail Polish Remover. The first step to stripping off an old pedicure is to use nail polish remover. Soak a cotton ball in the remover and rub it against your nails until most of the polish comes off. Try not to scrub too hard; you could damage your nails.

Are you tired of looking at your nails and seeing the same old color? Have they started to look dull and lifeless or did you use too dark of a nail polish? Whatever the case, it happens to all of us. All it takes is some time and a little know-how to strip your nails and get them back to looking brand new.
There are three methods you can use when stripping your nails. The first one is using a commercial product that will remove the polish in minutes. The second is using household products like vinegar or lemon juice to strip the polish off. And lastly, you can use acetone nail polish remover.
Using Commercial Products
Commercial products are often easiest because they are designed specifically for removing nail polish. Many of them work without damaging the surface of your nails, so you don’t have to worry about them looking worse when you’re done. Some even moisturize while they’re working, which makes them perfect for dry hands and nails. Just follow the instructions on the bottle or package to strip your nails back down to just your natural color.
Using Household Products
If you don’t have any commercial products on hand, you can use household items instead. Vinegar and lemon juice both work perfectly well as nail strippers, but
1. Soak your feet in a bowl of warm water with a small amount of hand dishwashing detergent for 5 minutes.
2. Dry your feet and use the sandpaper to strip off the polish until smooth.
3. Use an old toothbrush to scrub between your toes
4. Dip a cotton pad in acetone nail polish remover and rub off any remaining polish
5. Begin again with new polish of your choice.
