I think longer soaks are the key. Fingertips in the acetone at least 10 minutes and possibly up to 30. Some people swear by covering the nail in acetone and then wrapping the fingertip up in tinfoil so it can soak without air-drying too fast. Also, a nail file / emery board to shave down the biggest chunks of remaining glue.

My wife does the fingertip foil-wrapping when she is removing polish.

I got a blowout today for the first time ever and it’s pretty amazing. My hair is totally straight and flat and sleek like I could never do myself. It was for a work thing and I totally feel like I dressed up like one of the sales/accounts girls for the day.

I'm intrigued. So it's better than flat ironing?

I don't understand. Are you talking about flat tires or cooking steaks?

It was a significant decrease in overall volume compared to flatironing for me. If you look at the drybar styles I got the “Manhattan” which is specifically flat/sleek. I’ve never had this little volume. And it’s the same on day 2.
