There have been a few ‘Miracle Gel Remover’ ads doing the rounds recently, claiming to remove your gel polish within minutes. I don’t normally comment on products that I don’t use myself, but in this case I can’t emphasise it enough ~ THIS IS NOT A PRODUCT YOU WANT TO BE USING ON YOUR NAILS.
This pic shows a client who had bought one such remover to take off her gel polish (NOT CND™ Shellac™) at home, which she had put on at another salon & would normally take at least 20 minutes for her nail technician to soak off.
This was the state of her nails after she had used it. As you can see, the nails are visibly damaged & she also told me that the product had caused a burning sensation when it came into contact with her skin. This suggests to me that it contains ingredient(s) which are not safe for such cosmetic use.
I don’t know which particular remover she tried, but I do know that some of the leading scientists in the nail industry have been investigating these products & have found that they contain potentially harmful industrial solvents which may cause severe chemical burns. There have also been difficulties in obtaining the Safety Data Sheets (documents required for hazardous chemicals) or for those SDS that were provided, they were found to have listed false ingredients.
These products are not miracles - they are dangerous & should be avoided. If you would like a gel polish which removes quickly, choose CND™ Shellac™ with the Xpress5 Top Coat or CND™ Shellac Luxe™, both of which can be safely removed in 5 minutes or less. If you would like to ensure the health of your nails, choose a professionally trained nail technician with the relevant qualifications for the treatments they provide & the SDS for the products they use. If you would like to remove your gel polish yourself, ask your nail tech the best way of doing so - they may even be able to retail you products to help.
Finally, remember that I offer free removal for any gel polish that I have applied (even if you don’t want a new set put on!) & I am fully trained in IBX™ which is designed to repair damaged nails such as these.
