Right you need to get nail polish remover with "acetone" in it and soak them for a while and hopefully they should come off :wv :wv

Thanks Mrs. They will sort of just dissolve then, will they?

I'm in the same position, thought I was great getting them for my wedding and now they look pretty poor. I have been told to cut the tops off them as far as possible and then get to work on the acetone nail polish remover. After that in order to restore any semblance to your previous nails you need to get going on the nail strengthener polish with gusto.

I used the nail polish remover then too to get rid of them but it was quite tedious. I hoped there was a better way.
