  • Step 2: Soak a cotton ball in acetone and place it directly on top of your nails. Use a generous amount of nail polish remover here.
  • Step 3: Wrap your finger with a small piece of foil and leave it there for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Step 4: Remove the foil strip. The gel manicure should now slide right off with the cotton ball.
