    i have mixed acetone, can I use that?

  3. Bunny Lover says:

    i just peel off with fngrs…works for me

  4. worldofnaz says:

    This was painful to watch. This is not how you should take off your gel nail polish, just file the shine off then it should come off quickly with nail polish remover.

  5. Jess and Matthew says:

    Can you do this with fake gel nails

  6. Jillian Riker says:

  7. Farah Kajjaj says:

    very good tip it actually works thank you soooooooo much ………..

  8. QueueTeaPi says:

    This tutorial alone makes me want to just go back to normal nail polish. I like the shine of gel, but this seems so time consuming

  9. Sylvia Danthon says:

    Thanks. It worked wonderfully. 

  10. SpontSteph914 says:

    You have to break the seal of the gel. File over the shine before u do all this

  11. Krystle Grayson says:

    Does this work for Nexgen nails, too?

    Thank you for sharing. I am going to try this tonight. I think it is very unhealthy to file your nail to remove the gel.

  15. Jenny Rasco says:

    thank you.

  16. Andrea S says:

    This worked perfectly for me! I don't know why it's not working for so many people :/

  17. adriana gomez says:

    Idk why people are saying this doesnt work. Its literally fool proof as long as youre using pure acetone.

  18. Sarah Ham says:

    now there is a nails vanish remover no need to take that way

  19. Cheyenne Young says:

    Will nail polish remover work if i use it instead of acetone?

  20. Katelyn Brown says:

    After reading the comments, I didn't think it would work..But it worked just like the video!! Thanks so much! :)
