DIY Gel Nail Polish Remover

After not being able to post anything due to work and other things, I'm finally up with a blog post & a new category/topic. I took me a while to finish editing photos plus a video (yep! i'm making videos now) for this diy project I discovered while doing laundry. Since our washing machine broke a few years ago and we haven't replaced it (until this year), I would have to hand wash my clothes but I'm glad that happened because I was able to discover this two ingredient do it yourself gel nail remover. We don't have to spend so much on having it removed in a salon.

Now let's get to it.

Disclaimer/Note: This worked with my Etude House Enamelting Gel Nail Polishes and is not 100% sure to work with other gel polish brands.

First we'll need to prepare the following:

  1. Water
  2. Fabric conditioner
  3. A small cup that will help us measure the amount of liquid we will be using.
  4. A container to dip in the fingernails.

I couldn't find any better photo worthy containers so I'm using the shot glass and a heart shaped saucer here at home. The shot glass was perfect though.

Fill your small cup with equal parts water and fabric conditioner / softener.

Pour in the water and and fabric conditioner to the container. (Sauce

Now this next step of adding a few drops to the mixture is optional.

See how simple the mix is! Now it's ready. Just dip in your fingernails for at least 15 minutes.

After letting the gel nail polish remover mixture set in. Scrape the polish of using a nail pusher.

Sometimes, the mixture got so effective that it will be so easy to peel off using just your hands.

And that's it! This DIY Gel Nail Remover helped me save 50% or even less than the cost of a Gel Nail Remover or paying the salon at a hefty price just to remove my gel nail polish. As I've said earlier this worked perfect with my nails polished with Etude House Enamelting Gel Nails, I haven't tried this on other gel nail brands. Would love to know if you've tried this on a different gel nail polish brand and if it worked!
