With all of us stuck at home at the moment due to the covid pandemic, some of you are having to remove your own gel polish or gel/ acrylic nails. So I’ve put a list of the procedure here below, for those brave enough to give it a go. You can get the kit that you need here on our website. For Gel and Acrylic it will be a bit of a longer process, but gel polish should take 15 to 20 minutes.
1/ Using the stronger side of the file, rub across the gel polish, acrylic or Gel surface gently. Remove the shiny layer gently.
2/ Put Acetone onto cotton pad inside the foil wrap. Soak it well.
3/ Wrap the foil around the nail tightly and soak the nails for 15 mins for gel polish, 30 mins for acrylic and gel nails.
4/ After the required time peel of the foil and discard into bin.
5/ Use orange wood stick to scrape of any remaining product.
6/ Buff the nails very gently with the white buffer black until the surface is clear of gel polish.
7/ File nails into shape, put solar cuticle oil on cuticles and gently push back cuticles and after apply a generous amount of Ultra Caring Hand Cream. Gel or Acrylic might require another soaking and repeat. Now you are ready for top coat if required. But it is a good time to let nails breathe now in between applications, whilst no one is meeting up.
