Lomasi

Birchbox Breakdown

We approach old manis the same way we approach our exes—we’d like to forget they ever existed. While we can’t offer guidance in the breakup department, we can help you get a fresh nail start. Meet Lomasi’s ace gel polish remover. It effectively kicks stubborn lacquers to the curb, so you're ready to embrace your new mani love.

How it Works

The salon-quality formula gently softens the gel, allowing for easy at-home removal in only 15 minutes. Worried about damaging your nails? Don’t be. This remover keeps them looking just as good as they did premani. While recommended for use with Lomasi Color Gel, it also works with other gel polish.

How to Use

After filing and buffing your nails to remove the shine of your existing polish, fold a 1-in. by 2-in. cotton wipe and saturate it with the Lomasi Remover. Apply the wipe to your nail. Then, wrap a 2-in. by 4-in. piece of aluminum foil around the fingertip (make sure the shiny side faces toward the cotton) and secure with stretch tape. Follow this process on all four fingers and thumb. Wait 15 minutes for the gel to soften. Hold the foil firmly and pull it off of your nail, pushing off the color with your plastic remover stick. Repeat on other hand. Note: All of the preceding materials are included in the Lomasi Gel Manicure Kit.

Not any better than just pure acetone. Save your money and just get the drug store stuff. I wasn't impressed

This product does what it says and is decent. Gentle an effective. I would put this in the same category as the typical store brands.

Waste of 5 bucks.
Purchased

This is great to remove nail polish, but horrible for removing gel polish. Took me 40 minutes to remove my gel polish last night. My nails were hashed by the time I got done, too. It dried out my fingertips and my nails, worse than acetone. Will be going back to pure acetone again.

DIdn't work for me

This didnt work on my nails. Made the lacquer a little soft but didn't remove it. I don't think it works with the formula of gel nail i have. Also it is VERY drying and harsh on the skin.

Smells better than acetone and doesn't seem to dry out the skin as much as acetone does. I think acetone works better and quicker to remove the gel

much better than acetone
Purchased

i really liked this as an alternative to acetone for removing my gel manicure (it wasn't lomasi). it worked very well and i preferred it to soaking my entire fingernail/tip in acetone. i did need to use a lot to drench the cotton but perhaps i should have squeezed each swab before using it. overall, this is a great option for at home removal. i would definitely purchase it again.

I don't use gel nailpolish, but glitter
Purchased

and this stuff works. I cannot tell you how many times in the past I had to scrub and scrub at my nailpolish to get the glitter off but with this remover, I just wipe it a few times, and the glitter be gone!

Nice and strong!
Purchased

I really liked this product because seemed to be much stronger than a regular nail polish remover. The smell was also more mild than other removers.

Incredibly drying but takes nail polish off well
Purchased

Works very well as a nail polish remover (I have not yet tried it on gel manicures) but it's INCREDIBLY drying to your nail. My nails are left with a white cast on them after I've used this so I have to lotion up really well and I also try to not use this more than once a week.

I prefer the Zoya nail polish remover a lot better than this.

I was not overly impressed. It was no better than the dollar store stuff that I use and smelled just as strong as any other remover.
