Temporary Salon Closure FAQ

How do I remove my gels from home?

If you'd like to watch a video of how to remove your gels from home, head over to our Instagram page where you'll find an Instagram highlight called 'Removing Gels' .

Here's what you'll need:

1# Acetone - Pure acetone is best. Nail varnish remover containing acetone will work too, it'll just take a bit longer.
2# Cotton Pads
3# Tin Foil
4# An orange wood stick or a cuticle pusher
5# Cuticle Oil

Buff your nail with your nail file to break through the topcoat to the colour underneath

Soak cotton pad pieces in acetone or nail varnish remover and place onto tin foil.

Wrap nails in tin foil. Try to get a tight wrap to prevent the acetone / nail varnish remover drying out too quickly.

Wait 10 minutes while keeping nails warm. (Cold nails take longer)

Remove wraps and gently remove the flaking gel with the orange stick or cuticle pusher

Gently buff over remaining gel and repeat steps 2 - 5 until all gel is removed

Finish with cuticle oil to protect your skin and nails

It's very important to be gentle and patient. Please don't force the gel off or you'll damage your nails

What do I do about my lashes?

If your lash infill appointment is due during our temporary closure, your lashes may have already going in other directions and getting gappy.
