Instructions

  1. 1

    File the gel nail with the nail file until there is a thin layer of gel left. File gently to avoid damaging the living nail underneath.

  2. 2

    Gently warm the bottle of UV gel nail remover under warm running water for a few minutes.

  3. 3

    Pour enough remover into the bowl to cover the nails.

  4. 4

    Soak the nails in the remover until the gel softens.

  5. 5

    Use the orange stick to gently scrap the gel away while the nails are still submerged. Removing the nails from the solution will allow them to harden again.

  6. 6

    Dry your hands with paper towels.

  7. 7

    Buff the nails to insure all of the UV gel nail has been removed and the nails are smooth.

  8. 8

    Treat the natural nails with conditioning nail oil.
