Q:

How do you get nail glue off your skin?

A:

To remove nail glue from your skin, soak the affected areas in warm, soapy water for several minutes, then use a nail file to loosen the softened glue. Dab the skin with a nail polish remover containing acetone, or soak fingers in a small bowl of the solution.

  1. Remove the outermost layer

    Buff the outer layer of glue of the skin using a nail file. This removes some of the glue and makes it easier for the nail polish remover to work. To avoid any unnecessary pain, use a fine-textured nail file. Apply light pressure while working the file against the glue.

  2. Soak the affected areas

    Soak the affected areas in nail polish remover containing acetone for at least 10 minutes. The nail polish remover works to remove most of the glue from the skin. After soaking the skin in the nail polish remover, switch to soaking the affected areas again in warm, soapy water.

  3. Buff the remains of the glue

    Buff the area once more to remove any remaining residue. Use an even-finer nail file than the one previously used, if one is available. After buffing a final time, wash the area with warm, soapy water to remove any of the remaining particles of glue.

    How do you get rid of shaving bumps?

    A:

    Stop shaving bumps by giving the skin a break from shaving to provide time for healing. If a bump is noted, use a clean, sterilized needle or tweezers to lift the end of the hair shaft from the skin.
