REMOVE YOUR GEL NAIL POLISH IN 3 EASY STEPS

Want to remove your gel nail polish, but have no idea on the best way to do it?
No worries, we have compiled an easy three-step plan for you! Read the steps and our tips and you can rest assured to safely remove your gel nail polish at home without damaging your nails.

3 EASY STEPS TO SAFELY REMOVE GEL NAIL POLISH

STEP 1: BUFF THE NAIL

File away all of the top shiny layer of polish, being careful not to go down to the natural nail.

STEP 2: ACETONE REMOVER

You can either use the foil method or the soaking method. Foil method: saturate the pad on the foil with remover, wrap tightly around your finger and allow 10 to 15 minutes for the remover to lift the gel polish of the nail. Tip: put your hands in a warm towel or oven gloves first! Soaking method: you place your nails in a bowl of acetone for 5 minutes. Tip: place your bowl of acetone in a bowl of hot (not boiling) water. Warm remover works faster! 🙂

STEP 3: REMOVE REMAINING POLISH

Remove the remaining gel polish gently using the remover tool. Push the polish gently away from the top of your nail, working towards the tip of the nail. If the polish is stuck, don’t push too hard as this could damage the nail; wrap back up again for another 5 minutes.

AFTER CARE

For a healthy finish, you can use the buffing block to gently buff your nails to get a nice natural shine again.

WHAT DO YOU NEED

  • A file – to buff the nails
  • Remover with acetone
  • Foil wraps or a bowl
  • Remover tool

It usually takes about 10 minutes to soak the gel polish off. If it takes longer, don’t worry. This usually means that:

  • the top shiny layer wasn’t buffed enough before you started soaking your nails.
  • there was a slightly thicker layer of gel polish on your nails than normal, so it takes longer to soak off.

SUMMARY:

THREE-STEP PLAN TO REMOVE GEL NAIL POLISH

  1. Buff the nail
  2. Soak in acetone – in either a bowl or the foil wraps
  3. Remove the remaining polish with a remover tool
