fun pic about what it looks like when i remove the gel polish. i had originally looked up a lot of different techniques for removal. i don’t have any interest in soaking my nails/fingers/hands in acetone. this is the best way i’ve found of minimizing contact with the nail polish remover – limiting it to only my nails. what you don’t see in this photo is that inside of the foil wrap is a cotton ball soaked in remover. i found a trick where you can unroll a single cotton ball and rip it up into pieces. so each time i do this i’m only a single cotton ball, which also helps limit the amount touching my hands. so i wrap them all up in the foil and leave them for 5-10 minutes. then i can take off the foil and just wipe away the polish.
