If you are like me and get gel polish manicures every few weeks, you probably HATE the removal process. It is no fun wasting 15-20 minutes sitting there soaking nails in acetone. Plus, paying for it? Nope. I don't have the patience for it. I have struggled with removal myself at home. I have tried a few kits that just haven't cut it, and was about to give up. Then I was sent CND Shellac Offly Fast 8 Minute Removal & Care Kit and I am happy to report my tune has changed.
Offly Fast 8 Minute Removal & Care Kit comes complete with everything I need to remove my gel polish in about 10 minutes -- right at home. And really it couldn't be any simpler. CND thought of everything to include in this kit which includes:
2 - CND Foil Remover Wraps (10 pack)
1 - OFFLY FAST™ Replenishing Remover (59 mL/2 fl oz)
1 - SOLAROIL® Cuticle Oil Mini (3.7 mL/.125 fl oz)
1 - Manicure Stick
The exclusive CND Foil Remover Wraps contain a precision-placed pad (it is sort of off center that makes it perfect for wrapping) so that it limits acetone exposure to the skin. It is super absorbent so that the acetone doesn't leak either. And the soft foil allows for a snug fit; it helps to trap body heat for even faster removal.
I simply put a small amount of the special remover on the pad and place it over my finger nail (there is a special way to place the finger in there). I then wrap the foil over and leave it on for eight minutes. After the eight minutes, most of the gel polish is dissolved. What polish is left is easily scraped away with the manicure stick. When finished, I massage SOLAROIL into my cuticles and nails. It really saves so much time and money!
CND Shellac Offly Fast 8 Minute Removal & Care Kit costs $13.90 and is available at fine salons that sell Shellac products.
