If you believe that that removing gel nail polish is one of the most agonizing beauty tasks a new tool that pops the gel polish off of your nails without damage. They’re called gel polish caps, and as you can see below, they’re basically little clips that you place over each of your nails during the gel removal process.
Usually, when taking off the polish at home, you soak a cotton ball in acetone and place it over the nail. Then, you wrap your finger in aluminum foil. The combo helps the acetone from evaporating and creates heat that also aids in removing the polish.
The nail caps take the place of the aluminum, firming securing the acetone-soaked cotton ball against your nail. After about eight to 10 minutes of soaking, un-clip the caps and your gel should peel up easily with the help of a metal removal tool. For more of a visual check out the video above.
The best part about these clips it that they’re reusable, so you’re not wasting any of the aluminum foil from your kitchen drawer.
