Since I had heard from various sources that this polish stained your nails like whoa, I decided to remove this particular manicure using the foil method. I took my cotton strips, put 100% acetone on them wrapped them around each nail individually, and to keep the acetone from evaporating too quickly I wrapped each finger with a square of aluminum foil also. I let the acetone sit for about 5 minutes and then pulled each one off. At first I thought I hadn't avoided the dreaded staining as there was a smurfish tinge to each of my nails, but I took a cotton ball with my regular remover on it and swiped each nail and the blue came off. I'll be honest, I was surprised, but happy none-the-less. So be warned, this color blue WILL stain your nails if you aren't careful, I recommend at least two base coats under this, one should probably be a whitening or anti-yellowing base coat like Essie Beam Up or Yellow Stop.
That's all I have for today, until next time.
