  • Step 1: Roll the sponges and put them into the glass so that they fill up the entire space in the glass. Trim the extra sponge if necessary.

Using sponges is perfect when you only want to wipe off one or two fingernails rather than the entire hand at one time.

However, if there are glitters, you will need extra wiping with cotton pads to clean your nails completely.

How To Choose Nail Polish Remover For Color Street Nails

Nail polish removers are either acetone or non-acetone. 

Acetone removers are much more popular and produce results faster by absorbing the polish color rapidly. 

However, after using an acetone-based formula, you will find your nails extremely dry and turned white. It may have a strong adverse effect on your nails and should not be used often. 

Meanwhile, non-acetone removers are tender, colorless, and have a mild smell. They don’t damage your nails as their acetone counterparts do. 

The downside is that they take longer to remove nail polish from your nails. 

Extra tips:

If you choose to go for an acetone nail polish remover, try to reduce the damage it causes to your nails. To do this, you should let it sit for only one minute then wipe it off. 

After that, wash your hands with soap in order to strip your nails and skin of acetone residue. Then, apply cuticle oil and leave it on for 15 minutes. 

Plus, it helps to stop using nail polish for a couple of days after using acetone on your nails. Give them some time to recover from the session. 

Wrap Up

How to remove Color Street nails? Overall, you can use cap clips, warm water, or sponges. Depending on the method you choose, it can take between one and five minutes to clean your nails. 

It’s worth noting that a nail polish remover is an inevitable part of the process, no matter which method you go for. You should use non-acetone removers as they are tender, hence safer for your nails.
