Place some Vaseline coating on the sides of your nail and then proceed with removing the manicure out. The things you’ll be needing are acetone, that you can get from any cosmetic store, and tin foil, which is probably already present in your kitchen. First of all, you have to the buff the surface of the nail using a multi task nail filer. This will help remove the shine from the surface of the nails. After that, soak a cotton ball in acetone and place it on your nail. The take the tin foil sheets and wrap it around your nails with the acetone cotton balls on them. Leave it like that for 10 to 15 minutes.

The acetone will break down the tough bonds of your gel manicure, and within a few minutes, it will be ready to simply slide off of your nail. And you will get the clean nail. Any residue that is left behind can be removed with the help of acetone stuffed cotton balls.

Place the smaller bowl into the larger bowl to warm up the acetone without directly heating it. Put your nails in the bowl of acetone and let them soak for a few minutes. The gel will start coming off from the ends. Help it off with a small manicure wand. When you’ve completely removed the gel, wash your hand and apply plenty of cream to overcome the damage by the direct application of acetone, which might be abrasive to your skin.
