It is necessary

  • - nail pliers;
  • - a file with an abrasiveness of 100-150 grit;
  • - file-polisher.


Step 1

In order to remove the gel from the nails, first of all, decrease their length. To do this, cut off the free edge of the nail with nail clippers. Perform the procedure very carefully so as not to damage the natural nail and the skin around it. After all, the frozen gel is quite hard, which means it can easily crack and cause defects in the nail plate. Do not cut the nail "at the root", it is better to bring it to the desired length with a file. After getting rid of the length, move on to removing the plastics.

Step 2

Gel is a fairly durable material. Unlike acrylic, which is also used in nail modeling, it does not dissolve in acetone, so removing the gel is a longer procedure. Take a file with an abrasiveness of 100-150 grit. It is used to remove plastics. Then, carefully file away the gel nail layer by layer.

Step 3

In order not to damage the natural nail plate, periodically remove the gel dust with a cotton pad or brush, and wipe the surface of the nail with a nail polish remover. Gel and natural nail get wet in different ways, so you can easily determine where the border of the extended and natural nail is. Don't think that you will have to spend a lot of time removing the gel. If the file is selected correctly, the procedure will take no more than 20-30 minutes.

Step 4

After removing the gel, apply slightly warmed oil to your nails and massage into it. You can use both special manicure oil and sunflower, olive, apricot oil. After the massage, polish your nails with a suede polisher.

Step 5

Professionals use the Artificial Nail Remover. It removes all artificial turf, contains an antifungal component and has a pleasant scent. Therefore, if possible, use it, and if necessary, remove the remaining gel with a file.
