How to remove oil nail gel polish without damaging your nails
First things first, you’ll need to assemble the right tools for the job. Fortunately, these are all things you’ll probably have around the home already. If not, they can all be bought locally or online. We’ve included suggestions where relevant.
What you’ll need
Nail file
Nail polish remover (acetone)
Cotton balls
Oil nail and cuticle conditioner
Aluminium foil strips
Nail stick or tool
1. Start by filing the top coat of your nails. To do this, take a coarse nail file and gently file down the topcoat of gel polish on the nail. 
Don’t aim to remove all of the polish; you just need to sand off the shine.

2. Next, coat your cuticles. You’ll need to protect your skin around your nails with cuticle oil or cream. This will provide protection from the acetone/nail polish remover alcohol which is often drying to the skin. We can recommend Onsen Cuticle Cream, Cuticle Oil ($8, Amazon) to protect your nails.

3. With that done, you can soak the cotton balls in acetone. Simply place cotton balls in a small bowl and pour acetone on top of each ball until they are soaked. Most salons tend to use cotton balls as they’re small and closer to the shape of your nails. Be sure to open a window or find a well-ventilated space to prevent you from breathing in the strong smell of acetone.

4. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to wrap each nail in aluminium foil. To do this, prepare the aluminium foil by tearing it into squares about 3 x 3 inches in size. Then, place an acetone-soaked cotton ball on top of the nail before wrapping your fingertips in the foil square. Leave these on for about 15 minutes to let the acetone work to breakdown the polish.

5. Next comes the crucial bit as you remove the foil and lift off the gel polish. Start by removing each foil to check if the polish has loosened before scraping the polish. Use a nail stick to gently work under the gel polish to  lift it off. If you notice that the polish hasn’t completely broken down, rewrap the nail with a new cotton ball/foil and repeat for five minutes or until it starts to shift.

6. Finally, it’s a good idea to hydrate your nails. Acetone can dry your nails and fingers in the process of removing gel polish, so you need to moisturise your nails afterwards. We recommend soaking your nails in coconut oil or cream for at least five minutes before applying cuticle oil. This will protect the skin and nails.
