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 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.

Works Well to Remove Gel Polish
Purchased

I bought this because I can't stand having chipped nail polish and don't always have time to go to the salon to have it removed. It works great! Just be sure to follow the instructions-you do not use it like a regular polish remover. You need to use cotton balls and foil just like the salon does. But it will save you $5-7 each time and you can do it while watching tv.

Not for me
Purchased

I bought this in hopes of removing a Gelish manicure. Unfortunately it did not work for me.

Not as good as acetone
Purchased

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

Best Remover EVER!

This gel polish remover is the BEST on the market! It works the first time, every time. I couldn't be happier. A little goes a long way as well. Very satisfied with this purchase!

Works Well
Purchased

A little of this goes a long way, definitely works better than cheap stuff from the drug store. Found it to be less harsh than acetone, but it does smell VERY STRONG.

Works like a charm
Purchased

This remover works SO WELL if you pair it with those aluminum foil nail polish removers. Pour a little on the cotton pad, wrap your finger and within 5 minutes, the gel polish is softened and scrapes right off. It takes off salon-grade gel polish as well as the kind you do at home. Really great and a fabulous price!

Don't really see the difference
Purchased

I don't really see the difference between using this brand and one from the Dollar Store, except this packaging is brilliant! I love the innovative and modernized design of it. It makes you feel more excited about cleaning your nails!

Save your money

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.
