How To Remove Shellac/Gel Nails
I think this is the most relevant place to start as I’ve seen first hand the women of Instagram freaking out at their outgrown shellac and gel nails with no idea how to remove them. But with this, there is nothing to be scared of, with a few tips the removal of gel and shellac nails is actually pretty easy.
One of the most important things to remember when removing shellac or gel is to buff the nails. Start off by buffing the topcoat off your gels - without buffing first you’ll find it harder to get them off.
Then simply all you need is three products – cotton wool, an acetone nail polish remover that can likely be found in your local supermarket and foil.
After buffing the nails, soak nail-sized pieces of cotton wool in your acetone nail polish remover and apply to each nail and wrap in foil. Leave them to soak in the foil for around 10-15 minutes. Then remove the foil and cotton wool, and, with a wooden stick, gently push off any gel that has come loose, and re-wrap in necessary.
