I think hot water will solve your problem. Remember, not too hot or you'll hurt yourself. But hot. And then, you try to remove it, while you have your fingers down on the hot water. Then, tell me how did it work.

Super glue is a very strong glue, but it has a weakness to acetone. Many household items contain acetone, one most popular is fingernail polish remover. Just make sure you get the nail polish remover that does have acetone in it, (they do sell nail polish remover without acetone). Just place some on a the area where the glue is, and it should start to weaken the bond of it and disolve the glue. Pure acetone can burn your skin, so I would advise you to use nail polish remover where it isn't pure acetone. This will not damage your skin, however, it can discolor fabric, so don't use anything you don't want discolored. It can also damage laminated counter tops, so be careful. Good luck.

My only solution was nail polish remover but others suggested that already! Since I have no other solution to offer, I'll just say be thankful you didn't super glue your fingers together with bits of stuff stuck on as well. I once used super glue to fix my daughter's porcelain doll, by the time I was done I had glued the dolls hair and one eye (what was being fixed) to my fingers which were stuck together...it was not fun!

Fingernail polish remover. Make sure it has an acetone base though and it'll work like a charm. At least you haven't been walking around with your fingered glued together. lol
