@longhairprettynails what product /color did you use for your left hand? Love that color Btw how do you do so much polygel videos and not damage your nails soaking each time at 45 mins? My nails dried and started breaking from just gel polish switching every week

Hey Evie, (hope I spelled your name right) ☺️! Licensed nail tech here. To make removal faster for any medium, after you wrap your nails in the acetone & foil, put your hand in a large ziploc bag. Then submerge your bagged hand into a bowl of very warm (maybe hot) bowl of water. The heat will help the acetone work faster. Love your videos! Keep up the great work, and remember to take it easy while you’re growing a special little person. 🥰

When the pandemic started and I decided to do my own nails more often, I discovered and fell in love with polygel. I used the Gershian. My first set, a babyboomer, lasted 5 weeks with no lifting and looked gorgeous. I couldn't wait to try my next set- until that is, I went to take off the old set. I damaged at least 5 of my nails by filing a little too close to my nail plate and actually into my nail plate in a few nails. Combined with having to soak off the rest, my poor nails were a mess. I'm in the process of growing out the weakened and damaged nails (halfway there!). I am so terrified of doing this again, and even using my efile for more than removing the top layer of gel and using a round cuticle bit to clean around the cuticles, that I've given away the majority of my polygel sets and am only using gel full coverage tips or regular gel polish which I've been successful at soaking off and gently scraping in under 15 minutes. I so love polygel though and saved just a few favorite colors and the clear in hopes that I will be more experienced in years to come and brave another try!! I love your channel by the way. You're fabulous- with a great voice and laugh and you make everything look so easy, so thank you :)

I did not want to deal with poly removal. So on myself I applied gel tips with only UV base coat( beetles) then applied gel polish and top coat. Amazed how strong they are. Long and one week later no breaks or missing nails! I may never go back!

U should try wet steam towels with the aluminum foils It helps taking poly gels off faster and with less damage 1. Wet a folded towel with water and place it in a microwaveable bag and microwave it for a minute and 30 seconds 2.wrap your fingernails with acetone soaked cotton pads and foil 3. Puff the hot towel to make some of the heat dissipate 4. place your hand in middle of the fold of the towel 5. Leave it for 15 mins 6. Scrape away poly gel

Okay it’s nice to know I’m not just an idiot. I started doing polygel a few months ago and tried soaking off twice and was so pissed because after 20 min they were basically unaffected! I didn’t even wait for 45 min lol! It sounds like it’s just a beast product ... difficult to remove. Now I know. Next time I do a set... I’ll just be patient and wait 45+ ugh!

Does it have to be soak off polygel to come off with acetone. I’ve heard you can’t unless it’s soak off polygel

This is so much work. I dont have patience to do this. I got the powder acrylics two weeks ago for the first time and freaked out at how long it took to take them off. Going to put acrylic on fake nails and see if that will be faster to take off.

Nice video and your room is looking great! I've used a couple different removal methods for my polygels and I wind up using the electric nail steamer the most (you can get them on Amazon or AliExpress). I do the same steps as you with cutting them down and filing, but instead of wrapping them, I just pour the acetone into the steamer and stick my fingers in the slots. It works so much faster!

Man I just messed up my natural nails bad by trying to move too fast while soaking off tips. Wish I would have watched this first, I think it was just about on the day you posted it, ironically. Now I just put on some polish and trying to leave em alone for a minute.

I don’t know if you’ve done a video on this, but I wonder if you could do one one how to take care of the natural nail and cuticles when constantly changing nails.... I just got the Kiara gel tips and I’ve done my nails several times. My natural nail is now becoming thin because I believe I’m filing too much. It would be great to hear what you do take care of the nail/cuticles, proper removal of gel nails, and how to promote nail growth. I would greatly appreciate it coming from you since you’re constantly changing your nails. Thank you!

There’s a quicker way you can remove the poly gel. I saw a video of a lady using a ziplock bag and a bowl of rice. She heated up the dry rice in the microwave for about a minute and then she poured the acetone in the zip lock and put a dryer sheet in with it. Then she put her nails in the ziplock bag and placed em in the bowl of rice. Came off in about 5 mins. I think you should do a video trying it out.

Just in case you haven't had a chance to check them out it's official saw them this weekend when I ordered the colored tips for myself. Check it out you will be EXCITED!!!
ragi Month ago
and Evie can you please try a peeloff basecoat under all your polygel/gel nails, bc i wana see if it makes it easy to takeoff but also stays on long. Simply Nailogical tried Dip powder nails, and used a peeloff basecoat, and it was extremely hard for her to get it to peel off, so it probably wouldnt easily get off with polygel. she had to loosen it up byy soaking her hands in water and using LOTS of cuticle oil... maybe it would be a polygel life hacl?? please try im so curious!
