Gel Polish Removal Simplified

I know that many of you love gel manicure due to its durability. And sometimes, I get questions such as how to remove this gel polish. Well, you actually can remove your own gel polish manicure/pedicure at home with these easy steps.

What You Need

Nail Foil Remover Wraps

  1. Nail Removal Wraps such as foil wraps (any brands) or CND wraps
  2. Gel Remover such as OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover or Gelish Gel Remover
  3. Cuticle Stick
  4. 240-grit fine nail file such as Tropical nail file

You can make your own foil wraps with aluminium foils and cottons. But you have to cut them one by one. To save time and energy, you may also buy pre-cut removal foil wraps with attached absorbent pad. They are economical and easy to use.

How to Use

Gelish Gel Remover

  1. Saturate removal wrap pad with Expert Touch Lacquer gel remover.
  2. Place pad over gel and wrap finger. For faster removal, cover hands with plastic gloves and warm towels.
  3. Check first finger after 15 minutes; if necessary, resaturate pad, rewrap finger and check every 5 minutes. Gently push off gel with cuticle stick.
  4. Wash hands.

If you experience any sensation during removal (e.g. pressure, squeezing, pinching), remove wrap and gently file surface of gel only along side walls with fine 240-grit nail file. Gently push off as much gel color as possible with cuticle stick. Resaturate foil wrap, rewrap nail and continue soaking.
