Although I’ve been using peel off gels for about five years now, I’ve only now discovered that removal is easier if nails are soaked for a couple of minutes in warm water. The brainwave came when I did my nails just after a long soak and hair wash. The gel peeled off so easily compared with a cold start.
Maybe you haven’t ever experience reluctant gel, but sometimes I find a few nails won’t fully budge and get very annoyed.
Another tip is to use manicure orange sticks to lift the edge of the gels rather than a thumb nail, especially if your nails are fragile.
