How Do You Remove Gel Polish From Skin Around Nails?

Written by Tara

Follow these steps

  1. Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to each cuticle and the surrounding skin.
  2. Cut the cotton balls or strip to the size of each nail.
  3. Soak each piece of cut cotton in acetone.
  4. Place each piece of soaked cotton on top of the nail that it was cut to fit, and wrap the nail with plastic food wrap.

While regular acetone isn’t great for you, acetone-free remover can get the job done of ridding polish from your skin. Soaking a cotton ball in non-acetone remover and applying it to the skin is the easiest way to get polish off of your skin, says Nadine Abramcyk, co-founder of nail salon Tenoverten.

Generally How do you get gel nail polish off without acetone? Hand sanitizers, hydrogen peroxide, and cuticle oil are some of the most popular and effective methods. You can also try a kitchen oil like olive oil. If you have nothing else on hand, warm, soapy water or vinegar can be used to remove gel nails.
