Last time, I taught you all how to create the perfect gel nails at home. Well, nothing gold can stay, and eventually, they will need to be removed. Here is a list of supplies you’ll need to have on hand:
- Lightly file the top layer of your nail polish, just enough to remove the shine/top coat.
- Dip a cotton ball in acetone and place the cotton ball on your finger nail. Wrap a piece of tin foil around the cotton ball and your finger to secure it in place.
- Let your nails soak for 15 minutes. Leave them be—do not check to see if they are lifting! This will disturb the soaking process.
- After soaking, remove the tin foil and cotton balls. Focusing on one nail at a time, use a cuticle stick to push the gel off your nail. The gel should be super easy to scrape off. If it isn’t, place the acetone-soaked cotton ball and tin foil back on your finger and let it soak for another 10-15 minutes before trying to scrape it off again.
