Manicure with gel polish has already become a common thing. Women often prefer this type of coating because it lasts much longer than regular ones.

However, what to do when it comes to removing it? There is always a temptation to do it yourself, but experts urge you to avoid it at all costs. Manicurist Millie Horton told Who What Wear that removing gel polish on your own can lead to nail plate detachment.

The truth is that caring for gel nails is actually quite difficult, and Horton (like most experts) advises to consult a professional. "You can easily damage your natural nails during the removal process. A professional will know how to remove the product in the best way possible," she explains.

However, if you have a force majeure and need to remove gel polish at home, WWW has collected some tips on how to do it in the safest way.

Sanding

Regardless of the type of gel you have on your nails, you will have to file off the glossy top coat of polish before using a remover. The key is to carefully file off the glitter layer without touching the nail itself. This step may not seem so important, but according to Horton, it will significantly speed up the removal process.

Soaking

Unlike conventional nail polish, gel formulas require special remover. Horton recommends first moistening a cotton pad with an acetone-based product and placing it on the nail. Then it should be wrapped in foil and fixed on the nail. To make the process easier, you can buy ready-made wraps and nail clips.

The key to this stage is patience. Different polishes take different amounts of time, but Horton says that 10 minutes is usually enough.

Removal

After removing the foil, you can see which areas need more attention. If there are still large chunks of nail polish on certain parts of the nail, it is best to wrap the nail again and wait a little longer.

However, you can remove small areas where the coating has noticeably weakened with a cuticle pusher or an orange tree stick.

The final touch

Nail care requires nourishing the nail plate and cuticle after the removal is complete. "Polishing the nail to smooth the nail plate provides a great finish," explains Horton. "After removal, oil the cuticles and moisturize your hands. Repeat these steps regularly to keep your nails and hands healthy," she adds.
