Did anyone warn you that your nails underneath will be vile? Thought I should....

Be careful removing them or your nails will be trashed for ages. You need to soak them in a bowl of warm acetone (heat a bowl of acetone over another bowl of hot water) for ages, it can take up to an hour. Don't get tempted to yank them off, wait til they are really soft.
