I love getting a good gel manicure. My nails are instantly dry and they last for two weeks without chipping and I do not have to stand for the harsh chemicals that I use to endure with acrylics. The only problem is that I can’t always get back to the nail salon every two weeks and my nails look crazy.
So every now and then, I need to remove my mani without damaging/scraping my nails. Click through to see how to take off the color at home with a finger nail file, acetone, foil and cotton balls. You may also want to grab some cuticle (or vegetable) oil, vaseline and a wood nail stick to help the process and protect your nails.
