This is a troubling time for the beauty business. Salons, barbershops, and Nail salons are all closed due to COVID-9. Social distancing has become the new normal and staying in doors has forced us to try and maintain our beauty regimen.
This can be challenging and frustrating, especially when you don’t know how or what to do. I am here to help you through the process easily and safely. If your gel polish has grown out as shown in the photo below, these next few steps will be helpful.
The following are a few ways to remove your soak off gel while sitting at home. The hot water double bowl soak is up first. You can purchase the bowl here https://www.pipbuzzztogo.com/product-page/double-stack-warm-gel-soak-off-bowl
First steps would be to boil some water to pour into the base of the bowl. Once water is hot, pour the water into the base of the bowl and clip the top portion back on. Use a buffer file to buff the gel topcoat lightly, to remove the first clear layer. Optional- You can lightly shape the nails while the gel is still on for a harder base. Fill the finger slots with polish remover, insert your finger into the slots for 10-15 minutes and watch the gel melt right off.
Remove your hand and push off and remaining gel residue with a q tip or orange wood stick. Wipe clean and add cuticle oil and viola, safe gel polish removal.
The second option is Kiss Quick Gel Soak Off
This set includes 10 soak off caps and 20 pads. You can also use cotton. Soak pads or cotton with remover and place over your nail. Insert your fingers into the caps and wait 10-15 minutes. Remove the caps with the pads or cotton and wipe off any gel residue. If the gel isn’t ready for removal continue to soak. Once all the gel is removed, wipe and add cuticle oil.
By now some of you having nail woes and trust me your manicurist are feeling it too. We can’t wait to get you back in our chairs and make your nails pretty again. Until the meantime, soak of safely, clip your nails if you can’t soak and start over once this troubling time is over. Hope to see you sooner than later.
