How to remove gel nails at home.
Not many people know how to remove shellac at home—and no, peeling it off of your nails is not a safe solution.
Step 1) Buff The Top of Your NailUse a nail file, or buffer to gently buff the top layer of polish.
Step 2) Apply acetone to cotton pads & wrap tin foil around fingers. Let your nails soak for about 15 minutes.
Step 3) Scrap off your nails with a cuticle pusher.
Step 4) Lightly buff again, and apply hand lotion.

Step 4: Apply Your Cuticle Oil
Apply your oil to the cuticle by massaging into your cuticles and fingers. You can also add moisturizer to your hands.
Step 5: Apply Your Base Coat
Now is the time to apply your base coat to create a glossy canvas for your nail polish. If you are using shellac polish, apply your base coat and add it under the UV light for 120 seconds.
Step 6: Apply Your Colour
Get to painting! If you have purchased shellac, or regular polish simply apply the colour evenly, if you are using shellac apply your first thin layer, and dry for 120 seconds in the UV lamp then apply second coat and repeat.
Step 7: Apply Top Coat.
Whether you have regular polish, or shellac top coat is crucial - as this will harden the coloured polish. If using shellac polish, dry for 120 seconds.
Tip to you: Patience is a virtue, only with time we can get to the best!
