Before you apply gel polish products, make sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Gel polish products must not come in contact with the skin. Apply only to the nail plate.
  • Gelpolish Factory products should be cured in a 48W nail lamp (minimun).
  • Make sure all gel products are fully cured under the nail lamp. Always follow the curing times written on each product. If you are in doubt, cure longer.

Soak-Off Removal Guide for Soft Gel Tips

Step 1: File the Top Layer

  1. Gently file off the top coat of your gel polish and the top layer of the soft gel tip. This breaks the seal and allows the remover to penetrate.

Step 2: Apply Remover on Removal Foil

  1. Soak a piece of removal foil with acetone-based remover.
  2. Wrap the foil around your nail, ensuring the soaked pad is directly on top of the nail.

Step 3: Wait and Remove

  1. Let your nails soak for about 10 minutes.
  2. Working one finger at a time, gently remove the foil. The soft gel tips should start to dissolve and lift.

Step 4: Remove Residue

  1. Use a cuticle pusher or an orange stick to gently scrape off the tips and gel.
  2. If needed, re-soak the nails for a few more minutes and repeat the removal process.

Step 5: Nourish and Care

  1. Once all the gel tips are removed, buff your natural nails lightly to smooth them.
  2. Apply a nourishing nail oil to hydrate and strengthen your nails.

Voilà! You’re all set!
