I used this product for the first time 3 days ago and it worked as is should. The instructions were easy to follow but I had also seen a few tutorials on YouTube which simplified the process even more.
Make sure you're are doing this process over your sink because it will leak a bit while appyling the foil on your fingers. I started with the application on my left hand (I'm right handed) with the exception of my thumb to simplify the application of the foil on my right hand, then did my right hand and thumbs. I left the foil on for 15 minutes and once I removed the foil the polish just came right off. I only had to use the orange wooden stick on one finger but it was very minor.
I did try this process once again that same night because I wanted to re-do my nails because I was eperimenting with "art" and didn't care for the end result but the second time around I used regular foil and a cotton ball and I found that using my own foil and cotton ball was easier to use and apply...it also had a better grip on my finger nails so I didn't have the fear of the foil falling off.
Either way I think the product works well and its a good starter kit. Next time I'm going to stick to just purchasing the Erase gel nail polish remover bottle and use my own foil and cotton balls.
The kit is a great idea in theory
Kit included foils with cotton squares attached so when adding the acetone made it a wet mess. The foil was then hard to wrap. It would be better to get acetone, cotton balls and foil.
Did not work!!!!
This product does not work!!!
It is definitely a product that I would not buy again. It does not work! Don't waste your money.
The pieces of paper that it brings don't stick to your fingers and logically. The product does not do its job
My nail gal wasn't able to get me in for a removal and my gels were a little over 2 weeks old and starting to annoy me. I wandered into Ulta and found this kit. It worked great. I don't know if this helped or not but I have plastic clips I use over my nails to hold the foil and remover in place. It took 10 min for most of my nails and I had to keep it on another couple min for a few, just like at the salon.
Not worth it
-The buffing block is poor quality and does a horrible job of removing the shiny coat
-The aluminum foil pieces are great in theory but do not stay on the finger
-I had on the cotton soaked aluminum pads on for 30 minutes and still required use of the orange sticks to push off gel on every finger. The acetone only lightly softened the gel polish (unclear if this is due to poor quality or poor contact given the poorly fitting aluminum foil). The end result was partial removal with remnants. Additional soaking for another 30 minutes did not help
-frustrating product I do not recommend
This product is for real
This box is so east to use and the polish comes right off. Just soak the pad, not dripping wet. fold the foil over the nail and wait exactly 15 minutes. Take the stick and use the slanted end and push the color off and buff. Wallah!!!
