Better than the foil hack
We recently drove from SC to FL for a Disney Cruise. I was packing up and doing all the mom duties, errands and finishing touches to be ready for our trip till the ACTUAL hour of departure working with almost 2 hrs of sleep. I had purchased these but very skeptical at the time. I decided to put them into my front seat passenger necessity bag since my manicure plans got pushed into the bottom of the list in crunch vacay time. I literally, applied the gel remover pads, tightened these clips on top, cracked the windows and reclined my seat for a mini car nap while my husband navigated. When I woke, the gel polish slid off effortlessly and my nails were prepped for my quick le mini macaron polish after we checked into the hotel. I'm hooked on the gel system as well. Thanks to the quickness and dry time elimination, this Mama's nails have never been more on pointe!! '—
Don't stay on well
I thought these were going to be clips with a hinge. They are tiny ratchets so you have to have the right size fingers or they won't fit. They don't open all the way. You have to slip your fingers inside. They don't even have a larger size for your thumbs, all the same. I do have large hands for a woman, so women with normal or small size fingers should do better than I did. I would return them, but the acetone got on them and the writing smeared all over. Just not well made and actually made it harder to do things wearing them. And looking pretty ugly after one use. I saw ULTA has a hinge clip type and I will try those, or just stick with foil. Didn't work for me.
Practical and useful. I love them! I can use them to keep the removal wraps air tight and they're so well made I can still type on the computer or do house chores while removing my gel. A must in times of the pandemic!
It's really useful overhall but doesn't really work on my pinky... Still, pretty good on the other fingers.
These clips definitely make removal easier, but they do tend to fall apart rather easily.
These are a bit flimsy like some of the other reviews said but they hold up really well! They are super helpful when taking off your polish. I've had trouble with the remover pads staying on my fingers and with these they stay on super well!
I've used the clips over the remover pads and found them helpful, but they can come apart quite easily.
