But if you want to save money and time going to a nail salon, here are few easy steps on how you can remove Calgel nails by yourself. These are not the ordinary steps you use when you remove nail polish from your nails.
Step #1: Prepare your materials.
First, you must prepare all the necessary things such as aluminum foil, acetone nail polish remover, cotton pads, cuticle pusher, nail buffer, nail oil. With these materials on hand, cut a thin strip of aluminum foil approximately 1 by 3 inches long and pour enough of the acetone nail polish remover onto a cotton pad to remove it. And then, wrap the cotton pad around your thumb.
Step #2: Use an aluminum foil.
Get a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it around the cotton pad like a bandage. Repeat the process until all your fingers are wrapped individually. Do the same with your fingers on the other hand. Let the acetone nail polish remover stay on your finger for about 20 minutes and to check if the gel coating can already be removed, unwrap one of the bandages and try if the gel coating can already be removed easily from the surface.
Step #3: Scrape the gel coating.
You can easily scrape the gel coating from the surface by using a nail pusher. Try to push the gel coating from your nails in an upward motion. If it scrapes off easily, then scrape off the coating off of each nail. If in case it didn’t work to other fingers, wrap it again and leave for at least 10 minutes.
Step #4: Use a nail buffer.
Remove away any remaining residue of the product using the nail buffer. Moisturize your hands with essential oils after removing all the gel coating from your fingers. Calgel only needs minimal buffing of the nail plate before applying gel coating. Your nails will not suffer from any damages from filing and application of harsh chemical solutions.
