Struggling with an old gel manicure? Avoid the urge to peel... if you can't return to the salon for us to remove here is step by step how to remove at home.
How to remove gel polish:
First, buff your fingernails with a nail file, removing the shiny coating of the gel polish.
Then, soak a cotton ball in acetone until it's saturated. Put the soaked cotton ball on top of your buffed nail, and wrap your finger in a small square of aluminum foil to keep the cotton ball in place.
Repeat for all of your fingers.
Set a timer for 10 minutes
Remove the foil wraps
Then, use an orange stick to push off the remaining polish.
To finish buff to smooth the nails, apply cuticle oil and hand cream!
