We’ve all had to make some adjustments to our beauty routines over the last year, but I’ve actually been a fan of doing my own gel manicures for quite a while. Perhaps you’ve seen my tutorial on Memorandum or IGTV? It’s an excellent (and socially distant!) way to keep your nails looking stunning, regardless of your access to a salon. HOWEVER, taking off gel manicures can be tricky, especially if you want to avoid damaging your nail beds which can be caused by peeling off polish or using harsh scraping techniques. That’s why I love these gel polish removal clips that allow you to keep remover-soaked cotton in place while you’re soaking the polish off. Keeping everything steady maximizes your time and the effectiveness of your removal methods. So smart. For more step-by-step information and all of the other tools I use to achieve a professional gel manicure at home, read the full post here.
