This is something we highly recommend you do not do.
We offer a soak off treatment for our gel clients which involve lightly buffing the gels to break the seal and then soaking your nails in acetone.
Nails are tiny cells called keratinocytes, by peeling off a gel manicure, you are not only removing the gel,
but also the top layers of these delicate cells.
This can result in white patches and textural irregularities throughout the nails.
It also makes us cringe when we hear this. Please do not do it.
