Do It Right
You’re going to need acetone. Wait, wait, yes, we know that goes against most things you’ve been told about nail care these days. Acetone-free polish removers tend to be much more favored for a reason. You still need it if you want to get rid of gel nails. It is one of the only ways to properly break the bonds between the gel and your nails. Gel nails need to be soaked in acetone to properly remove them. For the sake of your skin, don’t literally soak them in acetone. That’s where a lot of the problems with the compound come into play. You’re going to want to find cotton balls or a similar product to soak in the acetone first. These get carefully applied over the nails with the intent to avoid the skin. Once you’ve done this, you should be able to dissolve the bonds between the gel and your nails without hurting the surrounding skin. Stay aware of where the cotton balls or other products are though and be mindful that it may take more than one try to find the appropriate balance of acetone to properly free the gel nails. They will begin to peel free on their own and should come off easily at this point.
