: I cracked my nail in my girls weights class. I have a fake nail on my finger and it cracked right through it. I don't know how to go about getting the fake nail off, without hurting my real nail. Does anyone know of and safe and easy ways to removal my fake nail, reducing any pain?
Soak the entire nail in acetone until the artificial coating has softened and can be easily pushed from the nail plate with an orangewood stick. You will have to cut the length back so there is no undue pressure or possibility of the nail repeatedly bending in the same spot. You might try wearing your nails at a more active length to remove the possibility of nail damage in the future -- especially if you are a very active or 'sporty' person.
