MAINTAINING acrylic nails can be expensive.
But one TikTok user has apparently discovered a way to make her manicure last for months if you can't get to the salon for a top up.
Posting on the account @kay._.lianah, the woman demonstrated how to soak off fake nails, before removing them and re-applying.
The video, which she captioned "Too lazy/don't have the money to get infills?", has been viewed over 10 million times.
First, she soaks her fingers in warm water to loosen the glue before using tweezers and a tooth flossing stick to scrape the fake nail off.
She then files her natural nails before re-applying the fake ones with nail glue.
