How to Remove OPI Gel Polish
Are you obsessed with all OPI gel colors like we are? Who doesn’t love a shiny, glossy, and long-lasting manicure? Besides the perfect manicure, the OPI gel-color manicure is also the ultimate fashion statement that makes your nails pop and becomes the center of attention.
Suppose this is the first time you are using an OPI nail polish set for a beautiful DIY manicure. In that case, you might be wondering about the potential damage that OPI gel manicure can cause to the nails. While the OPI gel manicure application process is easy, one has to be careful about the removal process.
Before we dive into the simple yet mandatory OPI gel polish removal process, you should know that the potential damage to the nails is not caused by all OPI gel colors. Still, it has a lot to do with a failed removal process.
How to remove OPI gel polish the right way
Step 1: Break the Seal of the Nails
To remove the OPI gel polish, you must break the seal of each nail. We recommend using the 240-file of OPI EDGE to file your manicured nails’ free edge and sidewalls. Subsequently, use the Expert Touch Removal Wraps after saturating them with the Expert Touch Lacquer Remover.
After the pads have been fully saturated, proceed to wrap the pads over each fingernail. If you want to remove the OPI gel nail polish faster, we recommend placing the Expert Touch Salon Mitts over each of your hands. Afterward, cover each of your hands with a towel that will add to the heat. Allow your fingernails to soak in the remover for 15 minutes.
Step 2: Remove Mitts & Wraps
After the 15 minutes have passed, proceed to remove the mitts that were used to accelerate the OPI gel removal process. While removing the OPI removing wraps, use slight pressure and apply twisting motion. You will see that the OPI gel has been lifted if not fully removed. (more…)
