How To Remove Gel Nail Polish supplies

Because of my review of Couture Gel Nail Polish, I have gotten some hits from searches about 'How to remove Gel Nail Polish.' Maybe someone got them done at the salon and it's time to come off, but they need some pointers? No problem.
I have just gotten my first tiny chip on my thumbnail, so I think it's time to re-do them. Also, I've never worn one color for so long. :)

You'll need:
An Emery Board
An Orange stick
Acetone Polish Remover
Cotton Balls or Pads
Aluminum Foil
Scissors


Step 1: Cut strips of aluminum foil big enough to wrap over and around your fingertips. Place a cotton ball in the center of the foil, or cut a cotton facial pad in half or quarters and use that; Just make sure it will completely cover your nail.

Step 2: File down through the top layer so that the remover can soak in.

Step 3: Pour a small amount of the Acetone on the cotton ball and center your nail on the ball and wrap your fingertip securely with the foil. Allow to sit for 5-7 minutes.

Step 4: Remove the foil and use an Orange stick to gently help it off. Never scrape it off as this will cause serious damage to your nails! If it doesn't come off easily, re-wrap it in your acetone soaked foil strip and allow to sit for another 2-3 minutes and try to remove it again.
