This is how I remove Jamberry Nail Wraps with Lemon Oil
Here's a great way to remove Jamberry nail wraps with lemon oil. I don't know about you but I try to keep chemicals out of my house and well, off my body as much as I can. Reducing the load of toxins is pretty important to me especially with a house full of kids. I love wearing my wraps but seriously hate using traditional nail polish remover to remove my wraps and polish so I searched out some alternatives.
I have been using plain coconut oil to remove my wraps and found that to be an easy method – but when I found out about lemon oil I was even more impressed with the results. Lemon oil actually quickly dissolves the adhesive on the wraps, is great for your nails and it smells great too! You can watch the video below to see how I remove Jamberry nail wraps with lemon oil with a few handy tips thrown in to make sure you remove your wraps with no damage to your nails.
If you don't have lemon oil on hand you can also use eucalyptus or orange oil. All three are excellent at dissolving adhesives and will work well.
As a bonus if you have weak or dull looking nails lemon essential oil helps brighten weak and dull looking nails and makes them look whiter. The high vitamin C content nourishes the cuticle and strengthens nails.
To remove your wraps with lemon oil, simply lift the edge of the wrap and put a drop or two between the wrap and the nail then gently work the oil in and the wrap will start to lift off easily. Always go from side to side on the nail when removing your wraps – if you go from the bottom to the top of the nail you are more likely to cause damage to your nails. You can use a small cosmetic brush, an orange stick or a cuticle pusher to help you work the oil under the wrap.
You can even remove you nail polish with lemon oil! A few drops on your polished nails let it sit for a few seconds and then start wiping down with a tissue or cotton ball. It might be a little slower than using nail polish remover but it works and it's non-toxic! Yay for lemons!
