Concentrated pure acetone is necessary to pour into a small bowl, cover it with plastic wrap or foil attached on the edges of a rubber band. Then acetone bowl must put in a water bath and heated for three or five minutes. Once the tool is cooked, it is necessary to smear the skin around the nail vaseline, lotion or balm, moisten cotton disk in acetone, put it on the nail and screw it into the top strip of aluminum foil to hold in place. Half an hour is necessary to remove the foil and cotton pads with nails. The gel should depart immediately, if it does not need to extend the process for another 10-15 minutes.
The second way - sawing gel layer with nails. Using wire cutters, cut the nails must be as short as possible. Then, using coarse grained nail files from 150 to 180 grit to start slow movements saw off the top layer of the gel.
