Gel REMOVAL

Hello Lovely Ladies!

Last week I was ‘flaunting’ how quickly my soak-off-gel collection has grown (Instagram post HERE) and Juliana posed a simple question: “Hi Marta, have you done a post on how you remove the gel”.  Now, I remember all the way back in elementary school when my teachers would say that whenever one person asks a question, a few others are definitely pondering it as well but just haven’t vocalized it.

I have only been working with soak off gel for 6 months so I am NO expert, but the past few months, maaaaany hours searching the net, and watching YouTube videos have allowed me to add a few helpful tips/tricks to my gel removal routine.  In today’s post I would like to share them with you- I hope you find it informative (if not helpful).
