Who likes half painted nails? Or Who doesn’t like matching the nail paints with the outfits? Anyways we gotta remove the previously painted nails. Removing gel nail polish requires a bit of time and patience, but it’s not difficult.
Tips to keep in mind:
Cover the edges of your nails with a thin layer of petroleum jelly to shield your skin from acetone, if you have sensitive skin.
You can also remove the gel polish with a nail drill, but be careful not to damage the natural nail. Unless you are an expert or have previous experience using a drill, stick to the acetone method.
You can remove gel polish with regular nail polish remover if you do not have 100% acetone, but it may take a little longer.
Here’s how to remove gel nail paint 💅🏾
•Cotton balls or pads
6 Steps to follow 💃🏾
- To get rid of the glossy top coat layer, buff the gel polish’s surface. This will facilitate faster polish dissolution and acetone absorption into the polish.
- Fill a cotton ball or pad completely with acetone. Wrap it with aluminium foil and seal it with the nail. For every nail, repeat this procedure.
- Let the nails soak for 10-15 minutes. The amount of time may change according to the acetone concentration and gel polish’s thickness.
- After some time, remove the foil and cotton balls. It should appear like the gel polish is starting to come off the nail.
- Now use a cuticle pusher to gently scrape away the remaining gel polish. Be careful not to scrape too hard or damage the natural nail. If there are any stubborn areas, repeat the process of soaking the nails in acetone and scraping away the polish.
- Once all the gel polish has been removed, use a nail file or buffer to smooth the surface of the nails
Wash your hands with soap and water to remove any leftover acetone.
And you’re done!
