If you have gotten your hands on the best gel polish kit and tried on some amazing shades, you might want to change the shades and go for another version of gel polish manicure. If you don’t want to go to the nail salon, your only option is to remove gel nail polish at home.
One of the most effective ways to remove gel nail polish is by applying acetone to your nails. It is also one of the most effective ways to remove gel nail polish from your nails at home. Instead of wrapping your nails in foil for an extended period, you can remove gel nail polish effectively by using plastic wrap (food wrap) instead.
If you have never applied acetone to your nails before, you will witness a major difference in your nails as you will be causing minimal damage to your nails instead of using a filter to get off the nail polish from your nails, or worse: by picking it off.
If you don’t want to visit the nail salon and remove the OPI gel polish at home, you will need the following items: Cotton Balls/Strips, Plastic Wrap, Acetone Solution (100%), Petroleum Jelly, Washcloth/ Towel.
Important Note: Acetone can potentially damage furniture, countertops, etc. We recommend using plastic wrap to cover the surface. Simultaneously, place a thick towel on the top of the surface.
