GEL POLISH COLOUR REMOVAL

STEP #3 : • Soak lint free wipes in plenty of 100% acetone and wrap in foil on each finger. Leave to soak for 10 to 15 minutes, times may vary depending on the products used, nail art, glitter and the number of layers. STEP #4 : • Start removing polish from one nail at a time, while keeping the rest wrapped in acetone. If taken out all at the same time, the gel will begin to reset and go hard. • Don’t force the gel off. If it is still hard, allow the gel to soak for longer. • Use a sharp Cuticle Pusher to remove any remaining soaked gel. • Make sure you support the customer’s natural nail tip with your finger while removing the gel to avoid bending or snapping the nail

STEP #5 : • If there is any Base Coat residue left, use a 100/180 grit buffer to gently buff it off. • If you are performing another gel application, any Vision Base Coat left on the nail plate needs to be only slightly buffed to avoid over buffing the natural nail, concentrating on areas around the cuticles. If not, massage cuticle oil into the cuticle and complete as a regular manicure.
