- Nail file
- Cotton pad
- Aluminum foil
- Cuticle stick
- Cuticle oil
Here's what you need to know before removing gel nail polish:
- Working on one hand at a time makes it simpler to remove gel nail paint.
- Create a room that is well-ventilated. Acetone smells strongly.
- Because acetone might leave stains on your work surface, cover it with a towel.
- 10 squares of aluminum foil that are large enough to wrap around each fingertip should be cut out.
- If you're using cotton balls, cut them into ten pieces that are large enough to cover each nail's nail bed.
- Apply acetone straight on the cotton pad if you're using one, making sure it's damp but not leaking.
- Place the cloth that has been drenched with acetone over a fingernail.
- Start wrapping the fingertip in the pre-cut, 3x3-inch aluminum foil to retain the wet cotton ball in place.
Repeat this process for each fingernail until all of your fingers are covered in cotton balls and aluminum foil. After each nail has been wrapped, give the gel polish 10 minutes to absorb the acetone. The gel nail paint should soften and start to bubble or curl after ten minutes. As a result, you may pinch the cotton ball and foil free of the nail.
Use a metal cuticle pusher or an orangewood stick to gently push off the gel polish from each nail. Continue soaking the nail in acetone for another five minutes if the gel polish isn't coming off readily. Smooth the surface of your nails by gently buffing away any ridges or uneven edges.
It's easier to remove gel nail paint if you work on one hand at a time. Make sure the room is well ventilated. Acetone smells bad. Cover your work surface with a towel so acetone doesn't stain it. You'll need 10 squares of aluminum foil big enough to wrap around your fingers.
Cut cotton balls into ten pieces large enough to cover each nail bed if you're using cotton balls. Make sure your cotton pad is damp but not leaking when you apply acetone. Over a fingernail, place the acetone-soaked cloth. Wrap the fingertip in 3x3-inch aluminum foil to keep the cotton ball in place.
Each fingernail should be covered in cotton balls and aluminum foil. Give the gel polish 10 minutes to absorb the acetone after wrapping each nail. After ten minutes, the gel nail paint should soften and start bubbling or curling. So you can pinch the cotton ball and foil off the nail.
Gently push off the gel polish with a metal cuticle pusher or orangewood stick. If the gel polish won't come off, soak it in acetone for another five minutes. Buff away any ridges or uneven edges on your nails. Buff off any last traces of gel polish. Use cuticle oil to keep your cuticles moisturized and your nails healthy.
Rub the cuticle oil on once you've covered your cuticles. You can never have too much cuticle oil. Keep your skin and nails healthy by using cuticle oil three times a day. Instead of soaking cotton balls in acetone and foil-wrapping your nails, you can use gel nail paint remover.

Get rid of your gel nails in 5 minutes with our gel paint remover instead of constantly going to the salon. Gel nail paint removers are easier to use, use less tools, and don't harm your nails. Remove the top coat layer with a coarse nail filer until it's no longer smooth and glossy.
Apply gel polish remover generously over the gel nails. Don't touch your skin. Let the gel polish remover soak in for 5 minutes. The edges of gel nail polish should peel, split, bubble, or break. Gel polish that's thicker needs more time. Slowly loosen each nail's gel polish with a metal cuticle pusher or an orangewood stick. Buff your nails with a nail buffer. As part of nail maintenance, rehydrate your cuticles with cuticle oil.
