Google "how to remove dip nails".  It involves acetone, cotton balls, and foil.

Call the nail salon and ask them.

Go to the salon, costs 5 or 10 dollars.

Go back to the salon to have it done. Chances are too good that you will damage your nails trying to do it yourself.  Yes, there may be damage anyway (Not saying there will, I just don't know for sure) but I think there would be less if a pro removes it.

It's damaging either way. I've done it at home and in the salon. A series of gels destroyed my nails. They took a very very long time to recover. Not worth it, IMO.

Definitely go to the salon & have them removed. Really. It's not worth trying to do it yourself.

Have you had the dip powder?

Not the same as gel nails.

I have not done dip powder, I researched it. Removal is essentially the same, from every website I read. Not good for nails.
