Not that i've attempted l+p on toenails just yet but how would you remove it? is it just a case of filing/buffing off? I can't imagine sitting with feet soaking in acetone:eek::eek:
Thanks

yup thats what i would do. and heat a towel in a microwave and placed over the toes feels nice and warming and speeds things up..x

Thanks

i do it like that, then put a rubber glove over the foot as far as you can to hold the foil in place and it also holds in the heat and makes it work faster.

file the overlay first too to remove some of the product and it'll be faster.
