1) Using a coarse grit nail file, carefully file to remove the shine from the topcoat. Do this for all nails. This removes the top coat seal, allowing the remover to penetrate and lift the gel polish from the nail plate gently and with ease.
2) Saturate a cotton ball with gel nail polish remover.
3) Position the saturated cotton onto the gel polish and tightly fold a foil to wrap and secure it in place. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to other hands - wait for 5-10 min.
4) Starting with the first foil that was placed open carefully and check if the gel polish has lifted clean off the nail plate. Using a cuticle stick, remove the bulk of the dissolved gel polish.
5) If there is any residue left, re-saturate the foil cotton ball with gel polish remover and put nails back in the foil and rewrap tightly, work on next finger. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until nails are clean of product.
