Hi everyone,

I wonder if anyone could go through the steps of removing gel with me? I haven't done this for a while and I have a client tomorrow evening who wants her gel enhancements removed so want to make sure I get it right and do a good job. I use millennium gel which is buff off I believe and have also applied tips.

Many thanks.

If it truly gel, the only way to remove them would be be filing them off.

Hi there,

You need file down the length of the nails and then buff the gel to a fine layer and then leave it to grow out.

Your client may find it helpful to wear polish or a nail strengthener while the gel is growning out.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Karen

Thanks for your replies everyone. The gel is definately buff off. Just a few more questions, how long should this take and what grit file should I be using?

hi

It will depend on the thickness of your application. You should follow the manufacturers removal instructions.

If it is buff off start with a low grit and then go down to a really fine one then buff to a shine and apply top coat.

apply plenty of solar oil to keep them nourished.
