How to remove gel nails with acetone step by step
The gel nails are an excellent choice for those people who do not have long but for a special occasion and want to take them . Today we show you how to remove gel nails with acetone , one of the fastest and most effective methods. Keep reading and discover how to do it.

Steps to remove gel nails with acetone
The first thing you have to do is remove the enamel and any decorations that have nails . They must be clean to be able to act directly on the gel and to be removed completely and easily.
You must have a pot of pure acetone , not just the one that comes in the common nail polish remover, since the concentrated amounts are different. Pure acetone dissolves the adhesive upon contact with the gel nails, so it will be the most effective you can find.
Prepare a bowl with acetone and put it in a larger container and in turn have hot water, so that the acetone is heated in a water bath . Leave it for 3-5 minutes to temper.
Pure acetone can damage your skin , so it is best to protect the one around the nails with Vaseline, using a swab for its application. It is very important that you do not put petroleum jelly on your nails.
Moisten a piece of cotton in acetone and place it on top of the nail. Wrap the finger with aluminum foil or tape to keep it firmly attached. Repeat this process with all the nails, letting them be like this for 30 minutes.
There is also the option to put your fingers in the bowl so that the nails get wet directly with the acetone, but it can irritate your skin.
After 30 minutes, remove the cottons and you will see that the gel has fallen off the nails . You may have to take it off a little in some places, but it will come out easily. If you see that it is still very stuck, let it moisten 10 minutes more.
Clean the nails and lick them to leave them in good condition. Use a hand cream to moisturize them since after removing the gel nails can be a little weakened.

Nail thinning after gel nail treatment?
[Style intellectual] The gel nail that hardens and hardens, the correct 'removal' is the most important

Only general manicure is applied It is the 20th that started gel nail treatment in the summer. I lost my heart to the unique shine of gel nails and I only nailed gel for a few months. But after changing to gel nail, I feel nail weakened. Not long ago, I picked up something on the desk and the nail tip was broken. Is your nail thinner because of gel nails? Please let me know how you manage your weakened nails.

A.> The gel nail is different from the normal nail polish, and after applying the nail polish, it is hardened by using LED · UV lamp.

Once hardened, the gel nails last longer than normal nails because they harden hard and do not easily fall off the nails. If I manage well, I can go for three to four weeks.

Instead, gel nails can not be removed with regular nail removers, and gel removers can only be used to remove them. I put the cosmetic cotton wiped with gel remover on the gel nail and wrap it with foil to dissolve the gel nail polish and then remove it.

At this time, the gel nail which has not been properly removed is soaked again with a gel remover, or is removed by pushing it into a nail pusher or a file. In some nail shops, you can also slightly remove the gel nail with a special nail drill or file.

If the gel nail is torn off forcefully, the thin stratum corneum of the nail may peel off and damage it. Do not try to force it!

If you do not have time to go to the nail shop,Applying oil between your fingernail and gel nail can remove it without any damage.

If you feel nails become thin or thin after the gel nail procedure, it is likely that the gel nail has been damaged in the process of removing the gel nail itself. Excessive nail surface has been grinded or melted and damaged.

When I have been taking gel nails and removing them continuously or by doing wrong self-"off" (soak-off), my fingernails are getting thinner, and they often get torn, cracked and broken. It is best to wait

for healthy nails to grow before they are damaged or weakened . Because applying nutrients on damaged nails does not give rise to new nails. It is a good idea to

nail the nails to a short length so that they do not bend easily, and the surface of the nails should be cleaned up using a sanding block . While nurturing your fingernails, apply a nutritive to your cuticle line. It is also good to apply nutrition lotion.

Use a nail strengthener that will not break your fingernails when applied, once every 3 days, and then on the first day of the week.

1. How to drop gel nails
How to drop gel nails depends on the type of gel nails. There are two
major types of gel nails: soft and hard .

Hard types can not be dropped with gel remover, so they will all be scraped off.
However, it is said that it is better to ask a professional gel nail if it is a hard type, as nails may be damaged if you try to cut all hard types by yourself.

On the other hand, you can drop it at home if it's a soft type!

Necessary items can be arranged at a 100 yen shop etc., so the burden of the amount of money can be reduced.

Then let's see how to drop soft type gel nails

1 Things to prepare
In order to drop gel nails by self, let's prepare the necessary items first

<Necessary thing>

1 gel remover
You can not use gel nails with nail polish removers, so be sure to choose a remover that says gel.

2 files
Files differ in the roughness (grit number) of the file depending on the object.
It is recommended to use 80 to 150 G when shaving gel nails.

3 metal pusher
Because the tip is curved according to the roundness of the nail, it is believed that you can drop the gel nail while considering the burden on the nail.

4 aluminum foil
Prepare a few minutes of gel nail to drop the aluminum foil cut into about 10 cm square.

5 cotton
Cut a piece of cotton into four or six pieces and prepare one quarter of a gel nail for one quarter or one sixth of it.

6 soft buffer
It is used to remove the residue of gel nails and to adjust irregularities on the surface of nails.
Because it is a sponge type, it is an item that can adjust the shape and surface while suppressing the burden on the nails.

7 cuticle oil
Gel Remover may dry the nails and cuticles (on the edge of the nails), so using it after dropping the gel nails can be expected to prevent the skin from drying out on the fingertips.

<Good things to have>

¦ Rubber gloves or plastic bag
By wearing it during the gel remover's standing time, it seems that it can be easily permeated into the gel. As it is, it seems that it will be more easily penetrated by gel when it is put in lukewarm water, so let's prepare lukewarm water if it is enough.

In addition, it is said that you should leave it for about 10 to 15 minutes if you just put on rubber gloves, so you can do other things during that time by using rubber gloves and plastic bags.

Procedure to drop 2 gel nails

It is important to have a firm grasp of the procedure to remove the gel nails.
Here, I will explain the detailed procedure and point to drop the gel nail

We cut gel nail with 1 file
It is believed that the reason for shaving gel nails in the file is to make it easier for the gel to penetrate the gel remover.
Therefore, take care not to scrape your own nails and scrape the entire gel nail.
As shown in the figure, sharpening the tip of the gel nail is the key to make it easier for the gel to penetrate the gel remover.

?Point?
How to drop the gel nail with a stone is different depending on the size of the stone.
Small stones are scraped and dropped, and in the case of large stones, the adhesive side of the gel is difficult to drop widely, so after scraping the gel around the stone, immediately move on to the process of only the nail
 2.  If you find it hard to remove the stone, you can easily remove it with a nail clipper!
Lay aluminum foil under two fingers, put cotton on gel nail and soak gel remover
When soaking in cotton, let's make it to the extent that the liquid does not drip.
If you fold the aluminum foil about 1 cm as shown in the figure, the liquid will not drip easily.

Wrap the aluminum foil under 3 fingers and leave for 10 to 15 minutes
If you put rubber gloves and plastic bags after winding the aluminum foil, the permeability will increase more.

[Point] When 
putting on rubber gloves and plastic bags By performing the process from 1 to 3 with only one hand, you will be able to get rid of the gel nails of the other hand during the standing time, which will also shorten the time!

4 Remove the floating gel nail with a pusher
By dropping with a pusher, it seems that gel nails can be dropped without putting a load on the nails.

If the gel remains firmly, repeat steps 1 to 4 again without force peeling.
Check if the gel nail is floating every 5 minutes during the standing time.

5 Scrub the surface of the nail with soft buffer
If there is only a small amount of gel nails, scrape the surface of the nails with a soft buffer.
You can also use a soft buffer to smooth out the surface of the nail.
By rubbing the surface evenly, you will be able to get closer to the original self-nail condition.

6 Apply cuticle oil
Make sure to apply cuticle oil to your nails and cuticles, as gel removal makes the skin on your fingertips easier to dry.
If you do not have cuticle oil, you can use hand cream instead.

Off end
If you want to give more gloss to your nails after turning off gel nails, we recommend that you use Shiner (glossy nail polish) before applying cuticle oil!
Because it gives a sense of luster by doing so, it will be finished in a shiny nail

2. How to drop gel nails

Have you ever experienced "the nail got thinner", "the nail got white", and "the fingertips got rough" when you turned off the gel nail on your own?

It is said that this is the result of the gel being left behind and the effect of scraping the surface of the nail in the wrong way. In addition, there is a possibility that the fingertips become rough because remover etc. have been left too much.

In the way of dropping gel nail that tends to do just after, it may be lurking NG action to damage the fingertip.

Here, I will explain how to drop the gel nails NG!

1 Forcedly
Stop peeling the gel nail by hand.

Even if the gel nails have been partially removed, the degree of adhesion of the gel nails remaining slightly is high, and it may be easy to peel off the surface of the nails by peeling them with your hands.

If the surface of the nail peels off, not only the nail will be white, but also the strength may be weak, and it may be possible that it may be broken at some time.

Since nails are originally thought to be a support when grasping things or putting in force, removing them by force may lead to problems in daily life.

2 Remove with the liquid remover
Do not drop the gel nail with the light remover.

Some people have misunderstood that gel nails, like nail polishes (manicure), should be removed with a light removing solution. However, since gel nails and nail polish have different ingredients, it is not possible to remove gel nails with a light removal solution.

3 Drop everything down
Let's stop cutting and dropping all gel nails.

Gel nails are hard to work with if it is a hard type, so there may be no choice but to scrape and drop it in some cases, but there are also people who scrape and drop everything even with a soft type.

If you cut everything down, it may be difficult to understand the boundary between gel nails and nails, and it is likely that the nails will be shaved.
The method introduced in the previous chapter is to remove some gel nails, but it is only for the purpose of making it easy for the remover to penetrate, so do not scrape and drop all gel nails.

4 Try to drop only with gel remover
Stop trying to drop gel nails with gel remover only.

When used for a long time, gel remover is said to lead to roughening of the fingertips.

Be careful not to leave it for a long time, even if you do not intend to drop it with gel remover alone.

3. Drop the gel nail! Nail care method

Even after dropping the gel nail, I want to keep my nails clean.
After gel nails, it is important to carry out nail care as nails tend to be worn out.

Women's hands seem to be conscious of looking at men too ?
If you hear such things, you can't stand or stand.

Let's clean your nails properly from now on so that the men you care about may appear anytime!

Here we introduce how to care for nails.

1 Adjust the shape of the nail

The shape of the nail is said to be broadly divided into five types: square off square round oval point.
As you go to the left side of the figure, the nails are less likely to break.
Let's arrange in the form of your choice!

<What to prepare>
¦ File

<How to fix the shape of nails>
[1] We cut the tip with file to favorite length
[2] We scrape the side and arrange in preferred shape

Even though the shape of the nail is beautifully cut, it is believed that the shape will collapse as it extends.
Therefore, let's fix it at a pace of once every one to two weeks.

2 Remove the cuticles

(There is also a 3 WAY buffer with two types of buffer with different roughness and Shiner set)

<How to brush your nails>
[1] Rub the surface of the nail with buffer
[2] Polish the surface of the nail with Shiner

Frequent brushing on the nails can be a burden on the nails, so a guide should be once every two weeks.

4 Moisturize

The fingertips are easily dried because they often touch water, and it is also possible that the skin may become rough if you touch the gel remover when dropping the gel nails.
Therefore, let's do moisturizing care properly every day as a way to keep your fingertips healthy.

<What to prepare>
¦ Cuticle oil
¦ Hand cream

<How to remove sweet potato>
[1] Apply cuticle oil to the hairline of the nail

get  rid of gel nails
The construction of nails with gel allows long nails and long-lasting hands. However, the gel does not last forever and in fact at some point must be removed. Removing the gel is a fairly delicate operation because, if you are not careful, it prompts you to ruin the nail. So how do you remove the gel from your  nails without damaging them? And how do you safely remove the gel at home ?

Before explaining how to remove the gel from the nail reconstruction, it is good to specify the following:

Professional nail reconstruction gel removal should be done by a professional to avoid damaging the nail
There are different types of reconstruction gels, which are removed in different ways. So you need to know which one has been applied to your nails
therefore, if you have no knowledge of gel nail reconstruction , get help from a professional

What are the gels for the reconstruction of the best nails and the differences between the types
How to remove the nail reconstruction gel ? We must first make a distinction between the two main types of gel currently on the market:

the classic gel
the gel soak off
The classic gel for nail reconstruction is the one that is usually used by beauticians and nail technicians. Unlike the reconstruction with acrylic resin, one of the oldest, it does not require air drying, but through specific UV ultraviolet lamps.

The soak off gel differs from the classic because it is softer and thinner: therefore it looks more like a semi-permanent, and it is not recommended for a reconstruction that involves excessive lengthening of the nail, because due to its softness the latter it may break.

Are you looking for beauty tips? Follow the DMBeauty Instagram channel
What are the gels for the reconstruction of professional nails
The gels for the reconstruction of professional nails are therefore the classic and hardest ones, which can be used safely for reconstructions with tips, or millimeter maps to perfectly define the shape of the nail.

Unlike the semi-permanent or the last lighter gel enamels on the market as light as the soak off, the gel polish for the reconstruction of professional nails requires a fairly long procedure to be applied, to be applied by a professional to avoid a reconstruction with bubbles or, at worst, irritation and problems.

Therefore, if you are looking for cheap gel nail reconstructions , or the prices to buy them online, you should rely on professionals or take recognized courses in order to make gel nails without risking mistakes.

How to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails at home
After explaining the differences between the various types of enamel and gel, let's see how to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails at home . If the polish is soak off, you will need to

  • Specific solvent
    • Lima not too hard 
    • Container or cotton and tinfoil
    • Here's how to remove the soak gel off your nails

    File the upper part of the nail taking care not to go too deep to avoid damaging the nail
    Wet the cotton pads with the specific solvent
    Make the cotton adhere to the nail and fix it by covering it with the silver paper
    Wait 10 minutes
    Remove the nail polish
    Some pour the solvent into a basin where they put their hands for 10 minutes, but it would be better to avoid keeping the skin and the solvent in contact for such a long time.

    How to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails without a cutter
    To remove the classic gel of nail reconstruction the procedure is long, and if you are not an expert nail technician you would do well to avoid trying, because you risk ruining the nail, hurting yourself or having discomfort.

    In the same way we will talk about the method to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails without a cutter , since to use this type of instrument it would be necessary to have a professional manual, and the risk of damaging the nail is high.

    Can gel be removed from the nail without a drill? Tools and procedure
    The useful tools to remove the gel of the nail reconstruction are:


    • Cuticle oil and stick
    • Disinfectant
    • Two files, one from 100/150 grit and the other less hard
    • Wipes
    • Nail degreaser
    • Reinforcing enamel
    • And here is the procedure to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails without a cutter


    We begin to file the upper part of the nail with the harder file (100/150) taking care not to get too close to the nail. In fact, it is important to leave a thin layer of gel, so that the nail can get used to avoiding it breaking.
    Once the bulk is removed, we finish the job with the least hard file. To avoid going too deep, remove the dust that is generated with the filings by passing a small brush to keep an eye on the job.
    Without this we can also adjust the shape of our nails.
    Once the filing is finished, we pass the wipes with a degreaser to clean it, then cuticle oil with a small massage. We then push the cuticles towards the nail with the skin.
    IMPORTANT: after this removal process , it is necessary to use a reinforcing enamel for at least two or three weeks, to allow the nail to return to its original state. You can still apply a normal polish if you want to give the manicure a touch of color.

    How to remove the gel of the nail reconstruction without a burr in solvent? 
    It is not recommended to remove the gel of the reconstruction from the nails with the solvent, as if it were a seak off gel. Some actually remove it leaving the hand to soak for about ten minutes, and then "removing" the nail polish from the nail (always soaking, to prevent the gel from hardening again) with a stick.

    However, this procedure ruins the nail because it is very rude, it often also eliminates the layer of protective gel that must be left upon first removal, and traumatizes the nail. In any case, if you have decided to remove the reconstruction gel from your nails, contact a professional who will use sterilized instruments, it will be the best way to avoid any problems.

    Tips to avoid damaging or damaging your nails
    To avoid damaging the cuticles, when you remove the gel, gently file and do not get too close to the nail. After removing the reconstruction, use a reinforcing enamel and, during the following weeks, be careful not to hit it.

    Even natural remedies are excellent for protecting and helping nails. Castor oil and lemon, for example, are truly good for hair, eyelashes and nails.

    Lastly, let at least 20 days pass between each reconstruction, because it is important to let the nails "breathe".

    10 Ways to Remove Gel Gel Quickly and Easily

    However, not many know how to remove this very functional gel polish. The thing is, indeed removing gel polish is a bit more difficult than removing an ordinary nail polish. Bacaterus will tell you an easy way to clean gel polish from nails. Come on, look at the way! But, before that, let us first know the advantages and disadvantages of gel polish.
    Table of contents:
    Strengths and Lack of Gel Cut 10 Ways to Remove Gel Cut 
    1. Acetone
    2. Manicure Stick
    3. Aluminum Foil
    4. Nail Buffer
    5. Gel Nail Polish Remover Clip
    6. Nail Polish Remover Wrap
    7. Thought in the Salon
    8. Wash hands
    9. Cuticle Oil
    10. Apply a moisturizer 

    Strengths and Lack of Gel Cut 

    The advantage of gel polish is the validity period. In general, gel polish can last much longer than ordinary nail polish, which is up to 2-4 weeks. So, you don't need to justify or change new nail polish frequently if you use gel polish. While the disadvantages lie in the installation and removal. Gel gel should use ultra violet light to dry quickly. Meanwhile, we all know the dangers of UV light for our bodies. Then, the process of removing gel polish is also not as easy as ordinary nail polish. However, it is not impossible for you to remove the gel polish yourself at home. Here are the easy steps from Bacaterus for you.

    10 Ways to Remove Gel Cut 

    1. Acetone

    The first way to remove gel polish is to use nail polish remover . Yes, you can still remove the  gel nail polish with ordinary nail polish cleaning products . However, try cleaning products containing acetone (only 60% maximum so that your nails are not damaged). Or, if you want, you can use pure acetone.

    But, if you use acetone, don't throw it directly on your nails, huh. The trick, prepare a small bowl, fill with acetone about 1.25 cm. Soak your nails in acetone (bend your fingers inward so that all nails can be submerged at one time). Soaking time is 10 minutes. Keep skin exposed to acetone, because acetone will feel sore when exposed to the skin and can make the skin dry. Do not lift your nails before 10 minutes for maximum results.

    2. Manicure Stick

    Manicure stick or  orange woodstick are essential items in  nail art . If you are a nail craft lover, you must be  familiar with this thing. After soaking your nails with acetone, the next step is to scrape up nail polish using a  manicure stick. Press all the edges of nail polish using this stick, then push gently until the nail polish is scraped or released.

    3. Aluminum Foil 

    In addition to using acetone and  manicure sticks , the other way to remove gel polish is to use aluminum foil. If this object is usually used for cooking, now we will use it to remove gel nail polish.

    The trick, prepare aluminum foil, cotton,  nail polish remover , and scissors. Cut the cotton to the size of a nail and cut a large enough aluminum foil box to wrap the finger (about 8 cm). Apply cuticle oil to your nails and fingers as a start. After that, soak the cotton that has been cut into acetone. Place aluminum foil on flat media, then place your finger in the middle. Store one sheet of cotton on the nail, then wrap your finger tightly with aluminum foil. Let stand for 10 minutes. If so, open aluminum and cotton, clean the rest of the nail polish that is still attached to a  stick or cotton manicure .

    4. Nail Buffer

    The next way to remove gel polish is to scrape the paint using  nail buffer . This is a soft sandpaper coated sponge that is used to soften the sides of the nail after being cut.

    First, apply oil or cuticle cream to your nails. After that, your nail file uses nail buffer until the nail polish layer peels off. After that, soak the nails like in the first step.

    5. Gel Nail Polish Remover Clip 

    There is also a gel polish eraser product that can be directly used, but it looks like it's still hard to find in Indonesia. This product is called  gel nail polish remover clip . Usually this product contains 10  plastic clips that already contain cotton that already contains acetone.

    If you use this product, you need to leave it for around 15-20 minutes to work optimally. However, back to the quality and thickness of the gel nail polish you are using. You can check whether your nail polish has been eroded or not every five minutes.

    6. Nail Polish Remover Wrap

    This product is similar to the above  nail polish remover clip gel , but the material is made of aluminum foil instead of plastic. This is a practical version of how to remove gel polish using aluminum foil that you cut yourself. Unfortunately, this product has also not been widely marketed in Indonesia. 7. Thought in the Salon
    If you see a  nail art tutorial on Instagram or YouTube, you must have seen a nail on the 'dash' using a small tool. The name of the drill is electric nail drill . This object is usually used to remove gel nail polish from the nail by eroding it.

    Looks terrible, huh? But, actually this tool is not dangerous, really.  But, indeed if you are not used to using it, you should just let the experts do it.

    8. Wash hands

    After doing the ways to remove the gel polish above, immediately wash your hands with clean water and soap, yes. If you can use warm water, not ordinary water. Water is useful for removing residual acetone and nail polish from your nails and hands.

    9. Cuticle Oil

    After washing your hands with soap and water, it's time to nourish your nails. Use oil or cuticle cream on your nails and fingers evenly. You do not need to wipe off excess oil or cream, just rub it until it seeps in perfectly into the nails and skin.


    Cuticle oil and cream is useful for nourishing, moisturizing and softening nails and skin. This product is available at pharmacies, beauty product stores and nail salons. You can also buy it online at Bukalapak by clicking this link.

    10. Apply a moisturizer

    If there is no oil or cuticle cream, you can also use  hand cream,  body lotion, petroleum jelly (like NIVEA),  body butter , or other skin moisturizers. All of this is useful for nourishing the nails and skin due to contact with acetone. Now, that's ten ways to quickly remove gel polish from Bacaterus. How easy is it not to do it? You can do these methods yourself at home without the need to go to the salon. Except for the drill section, if you are not confident you should not scrub your own nail polish with a drill, huh. If you know of other ways to remove gel polish, please comment below.

     7 steps to remove gel nails

    The stable gel nails usually last very long, that is, they theoretically need to hold until they grow out or are renewed. As far as the gray theory, because not only the nails do not last forever, but the taste also changes with time. Then the gel nails have to be removed. How do we show you here.Unfortunately, removing gel nails takes time. Unfortunately, unlike most paints or glued-on nails, the hard gel has to be filed down. It is therefore important to acquire good quality files in different grain sizes. Depending on whether you want to completely remove the gel and return to your natural nails, you actually need at least half an hour to completely remove the gel nail. We will show you what to look out for so that you do not damage the nail bed and nail during this action. The more time you give yourself to take care of the nails and the nail bed in between, the better and healthier the result will be.

    Material and preparation

    1. file set
    2. Nagelfräser
    3. polishing Files
    4. Cuticle sticks
    5. brush
    6. nail polish remover
    7. disinfectant
    8. hand cream
    9. nail oil
    10. Wraps / Cell Towels
    11. kitchen roll

    Time spent removing gel nails
    We wanted to give you an approximate time to remove the gel nails. The duration depends primarily on whether you work with an electric router or grinder or if you need to file by hand. If you are filing by hand mechanically, you will inevitably need much longer, but in many cases you will also work much more gently on your nails.

    Tip: If the gel nail has already grown out a bit and the natural nail behind it comes to the fore, we especially recommend beginners to file the gel mechanically. If you slip off with the electric cutter and land on the natural nail, you will immediately cause extreme damage. In the worst case, cut a hole or notch in the natural nail.

    Remember, if you want to outgrow the gel nails, you will have to wait about three months. There is an hour but a good alternative, especially if you have then again naturally beautiful nails that do not feel like a foreign body.

    Costs and prices
    If you never want to wear gel nails again and only file the existing gel nails once, the files do not have to last long. Nevertheless, the quality should not be too bad, otherwise the nail will be damaged. Above all, metal files are of course completely taboo. The nail would heat up while filing and burn something downright. Worse still, the file fuses with the gel.

    Tip: As nail oil, you can also use a good oil from the kitchen. Coconut oil or almond oil is very well suited for nails and nail beds. But do not take oil that you can not even smell, because eventually your fingers will smell for a while. Beware of walnut oil, this could color the nails a little darker.

    Nailer with different attachments - complete set from about 50,00 Euro
    Ceramic file - from about 20,00 Euro
    Glass File - from about 15,00 Euro
    File Sandblatt / Buffer - available in different grain sizes and shapes - from about 1.50 euros
    Tip: Whether nail cutters as a complete set or good nail files, it is of course always cheaper somewhere. But with the nail cutters, the old saying that anyone who buys cheap buys twice.

    Instructions - Remove gel nails
    Again and again you hear from ignorant sadists that you should simply tear off the gel nail. This may work with glued-on nails, but with a real gel nail you will also at least partially tear the nail out of it. That falls into the category of torture!

    1. Disinfecting the hands
    In a good nail salon not only the tools, but also your and the hands of the operation are disinfected. You should do this especially when filing the gel nails. This relatively rough treatment can otherwise easily penetrate bacteria into the nail bed. Use a simple, normal disinfectant spray for the hands.

    Tip: It is ideal if you repeat this point a second time after wiping the nail polish. How to effectively prevent infections.

    2. Remove nail polish
    The old nail polish is best removed as normal with nail polish remover and cotton or kitchen roll, whichever suits you better. Do not try to soak the gel with the nail polish remover until it is tender. The harder it can often be removed later with the file.

    Tip: The nail polish sets the files fast, so it is better to remove them with a proper remover. Of course, if you have a surplus of files or you just do not have a nail polish remover in the house, the paint can also be filed down.

    3. Remove cuticle
    When the paint is off, you should push the cuticle back a little and carefully remove excess excess a little. Now disinfect your nails again, here you can not be too careful.

    Tip: Many nail specialists recommend applying a little nail oil or a comparable good oil to the cuticle and the exposed part of the nails. Others think you should apply fat cream on the skin around the nail. If you massage in the oil lightly, the nail is already a little armed against the coming mechanical attacks. Whatever method you prefer, it's entirely up to you, because both make sense.

    4. Apply coarse file
    The first thick elevation above the actual nail can be filed relatively quickly with a coarse-grained file. All you have to do is make sure that you do not scour the skin all around. Of course, you should not go for the natural nail either.

    Tip: Do not file a nail completely and then the next, but always a little on each nail. So every single nail can cool down again and again and will not be damaged.

    5. Use fine file
    When most of the gel is filed down, go over to a fine file. In between, the dust should always be swept off with a brush to see if you have already arrived on the natural nail. However, many specialists recommend leaving the gel on the nail for a while and allowing it to grow out quite naturally.

    Tip: If you are paying attention, you will also notice the resulting sanding dust, whether you are working on the natural nail or on the gel. The gel dusted much stronger than your own nail.

    6. Polishing
    If you have actually removed all the gel except for the natural nail, the nail is inevitably roughened a bit. Therefore, the nail is smoothed again with a polishing file or a polishing buffer. At the same time this prevents the penetration of bacteria or dirt. A simple polish even prevents discoloration of fruit or vegetables at the same time, if you work a lot in the kitchen.

    7. Care for the nails
    Both the nail bed and the nail now need a lot of attention. Do not just massage oil into your nails and nailbed right after the ordeal, but over and over again in the days that follow. You will find that after a while you will not miss the sturdy gel nails if the nails are well cared for.

    Tip: In the first time, after removing the gel nails, the natural nails will be very soft and sensitive. This is partly due to the heavy filing, but sometimes it's just a matter of habit, since you could almost dig up the garden with your nails first, they were so hard. So do not be afraid to wear rubber gloves for a while while washing and cleaning.

    Remove the gel nails yourself in 7 steps

    The stable gel nails usually last very long, that is, they theoretically need to hold until they grow out or are renewed. As far as the gray theory, because not only the nails do not last forever, but the taste also changes with time. Then the gel nails have to be removed. How do we show you here.Unfortunately, removing gel nails takes time. Unfortunately, unlike most paints or glued-on nails, the hard gel has to be filed down. It is therefore important to acquire good quality files in different grain sizes. Depending on whether you want to completely remove the gel and return to your natural nails, you actually need at least half an hour to completely remove the gel nail. We will show you what to look out for so that you do not damage the nail bed and nail during this action. The more time you give yourself to take care of the nails and the nail bed in between, the better and healthier the result will be.

    Material and preparation

    1. file set
    2. Nagelfräser
    3. polishing Files
    4. Cuticle sticks
    5. brush
    6. nail polish remover
    7. disinfectant
    8. hand cream
    9. nail oil
    10. Wraps / Cell Towels
    11. kitchen roll


    Time spent removing gel nails
    We wanted to give you an approximate time to remove the gel nails. The duration depends primarily on whether you work with an electric router or grinder or if you need to file by hand. If you are filing by hand mechanically, you will inevitably need much longer, but in many cases you will also work much more gently on your nails.

    Tip: If the gel nail has already grown out a bit and the natural nail behind it comes to the fore, we especially recommend beginners to file the gel mechanically. If you slip off with the electric cutter and land on the natural nail, you will immediately cause extreme damage. In the worst case, cut a hole or notch in the natural nail.

    Remember, if you want to outgrow the gel nails, you will have to wait about three months. There is an hour but a good alternative, especially if you have then again naturally beautiful nails that do not feel like a foreign body.

    Costs and prices
    If you never want to wear gel nails again and only file the existing gel nails once, the files do not have to last long. Nevertheless, the quality should not be too bad, otherwise the nail will be damaged. Above all, metal files are of course completely taboo. The nail would heat up while filing and burn something downright. Worse still, the file fuses with the gel.

    Tip: As nail oil, you can also use a good oil from the kitchen. Coconut oil or almond oil is very well suited for nails and nail beds. But do not take oil that you can not even smell, because eventually your fingers will smell for a while. Beware of walnut oil, this could color the nails a little darker.
