How to properly remove polygel nail?


When we are doing manicure, if our nails are not long enough, we can use polygel to extend directly on the basis of our own nails, which is easy and quick.

But how to remove nails quickly and cleanly without damaging the nails is a headache for many people. Most of them are either not removed cleanly, or the removal time is too long, which hurts our nails and causes the nails to become painful. Don't worry, learn how to remove nails quickly and cleanly with moepak!

First of all, we need to understand the principle of removal. Poly gel is a type of nail enhancement that combines the best features of gel and acrylic. It is typically soluble in solvents such as acetone, ethyl acetate, and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
And acetone is the most commonly used solvent for removing acrylic nails or products from nails. It is a highly effective solvent that can quickly dissolve the acrylic and make it easier to remove.

Step 1: First, use nail cutter to cut off the excess extended gel nails, which can be reversed to avoid cutting our own natural nails. If there are any decorative items like rhinestones or chains on the nails, they can be removed together.

Step 2: Use a nail file to buff our nails, if you have a nail drill that would be better. While ensuring that our natural nails are not damaged, try to buff the nails as thin as possible to improve efficiency and shorten the time.

Step 3: Apply Vaseline or cuticle oil to the edge of our nails. This can protect the skin around our fingers.

Step 4: Pour the acetone nail remover polish onto a cotton pad, Moisten the cotton pad as much as possible,place it on the buffed nails, and then use a clip to hold it in place for eight to ten minutes. Because acetone is volatile, it needs to be wrapped up.

Step 5: Take off the clip and cotton pad. At this point, we will find that the polygel on our nails begins to soften. Then use a cuticle pusher to carefully scrape off the softened part. If there is still unsoftened polygel on the nails, repeat Step 4.

Step 6: Use a nail buffer to lightly buff the nails. After the nails are evenly buffed, use a clean cotton pad to wipe the nails, and finally apply cuticle oil to nourish the nails. This completes the process of removing our nails.

It is important to note that nail polish remover can be harsh on the nails and surrounding skin, and overuse can lead to dryness, cracking, and irritation. It is recommended to use moisturizing nail and cuticle treatments to protect our nail.
