We've put a guide together to help you remove your gels at home. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help :)
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.

Gel applications last 2 – 3 weeks, and include: a file, shape, cuticle work & colour.
Choose from over 180 Colours, a French Manicure or Rock Star Nails.
Every Shwe client receives a complimentary soak off of their existing Gels with every reapplication. The Gel removal process is extremely easy and non-damaging. Gel Nails do not damage the natural nail and no longer do you have to deal with the pain and damage of acrylic nails!

Rock Star nails are a stunning combination of Gelish & Glitter which will last for weeks...
Shellac is a nail polish with gel properties (which help it last longer than normal polish - they claim 2 weeks wear), the call it a Power Polish (as it’s a hybrid between polish and gel).
Gelish is a pure gel system. This means that you’ll get longer lasting nails - 3 weeks wear, instead of their claimed 2 weeks.
Other benefits of this system is that you’ll be able to use all the contents of the bottle and it won’t go gloopy towards the end of the bottle, that you would otherwise get with a polish based hybrid system (as polish still dries out).
We are insured to carry out treatment on any age with Parental consent. Nail Harmony also do not have a minimum age requirement.
PolyGel is a gel based system which, on a chemical level takes acrylic polymers to give it its strength. Benefits is that it’s a lighter, safer and a more natural system to offer our clients while giving them the strength of an acrylic system but the flexibility of a gel.
No horrible monomers used which make it safer and no airborne dust while applying, too.
It’s the future of nail enhancement systems, unlike acrylics which have been around for 50 years!
